Flow International Corporation, the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of ultrahigh-pressure waterjet machines for cutting applications, has announced the release of the Mach 500 in Europe, an entirely new waterjet system marking the arrival of a new industry standard. The Mach 500 combines the latest in machine architecture and waterjet cutting technology with comprehensive service and support programs.
The main fields of use are machining metals such as aluminium, stainless steel, copper and brass, synthetic and natural stone and composite materials as well as cutting glass and plastics. Together, the latest generation of FlowXpert® 3-D solid modelling CAD/CAM software and the recently introduced Compass™ 5-axis contour following and collision sensing solution enable the Mach 500 to make a quantum leap in terms of speed, precision and reliability, significantly boosting productivity. Flow will present this system at ‘Schweißen+Schneiden’ trade fair, taking place at Düsseldorf from 25 to 29 September 2017 (hall 13, booth 13A59D).
