Flow Opens New Waterjet Applications and Training Facility in Kent, Washington

Flow International Corporation has announced the grand opening of the new Flow Waterjet Customer Technology Center in Kent, Washington. The Technology Center expands the customer training and application engineering lab at a new 14,000-square-foot facility. Flow hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new facility on Thursday, August 6, 2015.

The 14,000 square-foot Customer Technology Center provides world-class waterjet training in two new classrooms. Each classroom is equipped with a waterjet lab to be used for training customers on maintenance, software, advanced applications and more. Alongside the training classrooms is a fully-equipped applications lab which includes each of Flow’s Mach series line of waterjet systems: Mach 2b, Mach 2c, Mach 3b, and Mach 4c.

Included in the grand opening ceremony was a ribbon cutting by John Force and Robert Hight of John Force Racing, tours of the new state-of-the-art facility, Tahoma High School robotics team robot demonstration, along with live waterjet cutting demonstrations on Flow’s complete line of waterjet systems. John Force Racing has been a partner of Flow since 2012, and Force continues to trust the company’s waterjet solutions to support his racing team.

In 2012 John Force Racing added a Flow Mach 4c waterjet for custom parts production to their 160,000 square foot Brownsburg, Indiana facility. Precision parts have been a critical component of this team’s success—18 time winners of NHRA Funny Car Championships and winning over 232 national events. They brought machining in-house to ensure quality control, speed up production, and maintain their competitive edge by designing and manufacturing proprietary components.
