Dynamic Waterjet® XD - for faster more accurate bevel and 3D cutting
Flow's High-Performance NanoDrive System
The highest precision motion system in the industry
UltraPierce™ - ideal for cutting brittle and laminated materials such as marble, stone, glass, and composites.
Laser Edge Finder - allows a waterjet operator to precisely position their Flow waterjet at an exact position on the workpiece being cut.
Cutting system combines a pump rated at 94,000 pis (648 MPa), with Dynamic Waterjet XD, a high-precision flat stock and 3-D waterjet cutting technology. This combination is said to improve part cycle time and accuracy two to four times over standard non-Dynamic systems. The patented dynamic XD allows cutting bevels and 3-D parts using small wrist with up to 60º of articulation in any direction.
Aqua Tech Waterjet Machine - Omax 55100
Precision machining workhorse: From prototypes to production runs in sizes up to 4' x 8'. The Model 55100 JetMachining Center cuts complex flat parts out of materials including metal, plastic, glass, ceramic and composites directly from a CAD drawing or .DXF file. JetMachining is ideal for short-run part production, just-in-time manufacturing, tooling and prototype part development.
Qualities 1 through 5 use abrasive and water to cut the material. A quality of
1 will cut through the material; however it will leave a rough edge quality. This is acceptable if the edge will not be seen or if it is going to be welded. A quality of 2 will leave a fair edge and is good enough for most applications. A quality of 3 will leave a good edge and this our default setting. A quality of 4
is excellent and is great for machine parts or parts requiring a polished edge. A quality of 5 is superior to all.

Abrasive Jet Benefits
Machines a wide range of materials and thicknesses.
Does not create heat affected zones or mechanical stresses.
Rapid setup, no tool changes are required.
Minimal fixturing required.
Leaves behind a satin smooth edge,reducing secondary operations.
No noxious gases, liquids, or oils are used in (or caused by) the machining process.
Completes most work below 80 dBA for submerged cutting.
