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.

Flow Waterjet Launches FlowBlog

Written by

Flow International Corporation, a developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet machines for cutting and cleaning applications, has released a new blog, FlowBlog. The blog will focus on educating people on waterjet technology and industry trends.

“The goal of the blog is to be interactive,” says Chip Burnham, vice president of marketing for Flow and the lead contributor of the blog.  “We invite our readers to participate by leaving comments, suggesting future posts, and asking questions. The content should really be driven by the consumers.” Burnham will be joined by other leading experts in the waterjet industry, many of which have dedicated their careers to the technology such as Dr. Mohamed Hashish, the inventor of the abrasive waterjet.

“This blog is about educating the manufacturing community on waterjet technology,” says Burnham.  “We will be covering all aspects of waterjets, from how they work, what they can do, how they compare to other technologies, and how they’re used by successful shops.”

Flow International Corporation is a global technology-based manufacturing company committed to providing a world class customer experience. The Company offers technological leadership and exceptional waterjet performance to a wide-ranging customer base, benefiting many cutting and surface preparation applications, delivering profitable waterjet solutions and dynamic business growth opportunities to our customers.

Flow Demonstrates at WMTS 2011

Written by

Flow International Corporation (NASDAQ: FLOW) will conduct live demonstrations of the combined power of HyperPressure™ technology and the advanced motion system of Dynamic Waterjet® at the Western Manufacturing Technology Show in Edmonton, Alberta in booth number 1511, June 14-16, 2011.

Waterjet users continue to ask for higher cutting speeds and greater precision. Flow has responded by developing the industry's highest rated pump and the most advanced high precision cutting machine.

Flow's HyperJet® pumps are rated at 94,000 psi and provide a substantial 45% increase in pressure over traditional ultrahigh-pressure systems. Pressure equals productivity; the additional pressure produced by the HyperJet pump increases cutting speeds up to 50% while lowering abrasive consumption and part cost by up to 30%.

Speed alone without accuracy can mean lower quality parts. Flow developed Dynamic Waterjet, incorporating unique mathematical cutting models to compensate for the stream lag and taper produced by all waterjets. Dynamic Waterjet's articulated wrist tilts as required to hold inside corners and other geometries to achieve precision parts at far higher cutting speeds.

Flow will demonstrate these two industry leading technologies on the Mach 3 waterjet.  The Mach 3 is part of Flow's Mach Series of waterjets offering the widest range of waterjet machine capabilities and price in the industry.

The Mach 3 is powered by FlowMaster®, the world’s most popular waterjet programming and control software due to its ease of use and productivity. Combining HyperPressure technology and Dynamic Waterjet with FlowMaster provides manufacturers with a powerful and accurate, yet easy to use cutting system.

Application specialists will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how Flow’s waterjet technology can help fabricators expand their capabilities.

Flow International Corporation is the world's leading developer and manufacturer of ultrahigh-pressure waterjet technology for cutting and cleaning. Flow provides state-of-the-art ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) technology to numerous industries including automotive, aerospace, job shop, stone interiors, surface preparation, food and dozens more.
