Job Shops & Contract Cutting

Cut virtually any material, virtually any shape with a Flow waterjet

Waterjet is often regarded as the ideal cutting solution for job shops. A job shop rarely knows what project will come through the door next, and the ability of waterjet to cut virtually any material at any thickness on the same system, provides unparalleled flexibility for owners. A waterjet can support most any project that comes through the door, allowing owners to expand their business, take on more work, and provide a quick return on investment.

Waterjet's Perfect Match: Job Shops & Contract Cutting

A major benefit to waterjet is that it is a cold cutting process. When it comes to metals, this means no heat affected zone (HAZ), slag, or dross to remove via secondary finishing. It also means you can cut rubber, foam, and gaskets, as well as glass, composites, and more, all with minimal system adjustments. There is virtually no limit to the type of material and thickness that a waterjet can handle.

In addition to the ability to cut virtually any material, waterjets also allow you to cut in 2D or 3D depending on your needs. Straight cuts, intricate curves, chamfered edges, and bevels, all with high accuracy.

Flow Waterjets Deliver:
Ultimate flexibility • Wide variety of systems to match your needs • Virtually no secondary finishing required • High production • Low maintenance
