Flow Int'l. Introduces Innovations in Waterjet TechnologyApril 1, 2012
Flow International has launched three new waterjet products: the Mach 4c, the Mach 2c and the HyPlex Prime. The Mach 4c is designed to optimize the production environment, the Mach 2c is designed to provide value and the HyPlex Prime is an advanced direct drive pump, the company said.
The Mach 4c is the newest addition to the Mach 4 line of waterjets and offers a variety of features that are unique in the waterjet industry including an expandable modular design, up to 14 m (48') in length, allowing customers to increase the size of the cutting area as their business grows. The system is designed to provide fast, accurate machine motion with zero backlash. The new Mach 4 is ergonomically designed to improve operator convenience and productivity with lighting to enhance work piece visibility, efficient abrasive removal and easy access to material and parts with full four-sided accessibility.
The Mach 2c is a value-priced machine tool optimized for either pure or abrasive waterjet cutting. The motion control system offers up to 800 inches per minute cut speeds. Flow's exclusive Dynamic Waterjet is also available on the Mach 2c. Designed to eliminate taper errors and stream lag, Dynamic Waterjet can bring accuracy and speed to 2D cutting, according to the company. Whether cutting 3" thick steel plate or multi-stacked gasket material, the US made Mach 2c provides fast and accurate cutting, the company said.
The new HyPlex Prime pump rated at 60,000 PSI combines elements of Flow's patented HyperJet seal technology with the efficiency of a direct drive. With a highly modular design, it is designed to feature customized pump performance at a production-level price. Its new compact pressure-loading tool allows fast, accurate and repeatable maintenance, the company said.
