Radar will become famous soon enough
Default This thing is awesome!!

At work we just got a new Flow waterjet machine. Myself and another guy go to michigan for training this coming week. When the field service rep was there on thursday he showed us some things so we would not go into class blind. Flow has example programs in the machine and I got to cut out some cool stuff, I cut out a Elk bugeling, a coyote howling, a running horse for my wife and some other cool stuff. He wanted us to just keep cutting stuff to get some reps. in so our memory would soak it all in. Man the accuracy and detail on this thing is amazing. I would like to post pics but the sizes are all too big. I will try to figure it out. Oh also the field service rep and I were talking and come to find out that one of his customers is Mathews. And one of the companies that Mathews owns that is just down the road uses one of flows gantry style waterjets for cutting the limbs!!!! and they are one of his customers too!!

Yeah those machines are really cool, have a guy here that dose alot of high end machine work with one, he says hes got enough work lined up to run it 24 7. its all he dose, hes cut some really cool stuff, he had a wood cutting job for some guy building some really wild shaped house, made like a puzzle out if it, and numberd all the parts, so it could be put together at the building sight, also he had some stuff he cut out out of 1 inch thick glass, was pretty cool. think it used a sand and water mix to do the cutting, the glass looked like he polished the ends after the cut, but this is the way it came out of the tank, i was impressed!!

I've been using a Flow waterjet for just over a year now. it,s mind blowing what this thing can cut. We've got a 6'X12' tank and a dynamic head it can cut a square edge 8'' thick in any material you can imagine and any shape you can draw in the path program.I cut woodchuck silouettes out of plate for targets.
