Falcon Water-Jet Cutting Ltd.
An industry leader in innovation, quality and performance is pleased to introduce to you our new Flow Waterjet. With dual heads and a 6' x 12' cutting envelope we are quickly becoming the industry standard for performance, and quality.
Unmatched Speed and Versatility
Acclaimed for its power, speed, and versatility, ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) waterjet technology is the fastest growing major machine tool process in the world. The reason? Manufacturers realize greater efficiency and productivity by implementing UHP waterjets parts into their production. Since abrasive waterjet (AWJ) technology was first invented by Flow in 1979, the technology has rapidly evolved. Now, waterjets can quickly and accurately cut virtually every material from food and paper products to composites, steel, and exotic metals. In addition, waterjets cut with a narrow kerf and can produce net shape parts with no heataffected zone, heat distortion, or mechanical stresses. The result? Higher quality parts at a significant cost savings.
Greater Cutting Capabilities
Waterjets enable you to cut a variety of applications with ease. They can cut materials from 1/16 inch (1 mm) to over 8 inches (200 mm) thick into any shape in a single step. A pure waterjet can rapidly cut soft materials such as rubber, cork, and foam. Then, in less than two minutes, you can switch to an abrasive waterjet capable of cutting hard materials such as metal, stone, plastics, composites, glass, and ceramics with no heat-affected zone and superior edge quality.
Reduction in Material and Production Costs
Waterjets require minimal fixturing and tooling so you save valuable time. They also cut an accurate, clean edge that allows for tight nesting so you'll produce less scrap material, and increase your yields and profitability.
Many of our customers add waterjet cut parts to their production process as a complement to other cutting technologies such as EDM, laser, machine, and plasma. While each shop has its own unique cutting requirements, most find that waterjets enhance both their productivity and profitability.
