Standard Mach 500 table sizes include:
2m x 2m
3m x 2m
4m x 2m
8m x 4m

Robust Operating Platform

Paser 4 Cutting Head

The Mach 500 features a Paser 4 cutting head which delivers maximum cutting speed with the lowest possible operating cost. Mach 500 systems are also available with 5 axis cutting technology.

Paser 4 Cutting Head

5 Axis Cutting Head (Optional)

The Mach 500 Series waterjet cutting systems feature Flow’s newest Dynamic Waterjet technology with Advanced Beveling and 3D capabilities. Flow’s revolutionary Dynamic Waterjet XD provides for up to 60 ° of motion that gives you the ultimate in accuracy, speed, and flexibility.

5 Axis Cutting Head (Optional)

Dynamic Waterjet Head

Flow’s Dynamic Waterjet with Active Tolerance Control uses SmartStream technology and tilts the waterjet head into the cut direction to eliminate stream lag. The result is the ability to produce accurate parts 2 – 4 times faster than a conventional waterjet system. All waterjets exhibit stream lag and taper when cutting through material. Flow’s SmartStream technology uses advanced cutting modelling to control an articulated wrist and automatically tilt the cutting head to offset stream lag and taper.
The result is the ability to cut more parts, more accurately in less time.

High Pressure Pump - Produce 40% more product / hour with 87,000psi Hyperjet

High Pressure Pump - Produce 40% more product / hour with 87,000psi Hyperjet

At the heart of the world's fastest waterjet system is Flow’s Hyperjet 87,000psi intensifier pump. Incorporating technology developed by Flow over 4 decades, the Flow Hyperjet sets a new standard for high production cutting. Increasing the pressure from 60,000psi to 87,000psi means cutting speed can be increased by more than 40% resulting in substantial increases in output and a reduced cost per part. Available in 50 and 100HP versions the Hyperjet incorporates many leading features including the patented long life seal cartridge which delivers the worlds longest service intervals, built in diagnostic intelligence and many other innovations invented by Flow who is world leader in this field.

FlowXpert Software

Ultra Pierce Vacuum Assist (Optional)

Ultra Pierce Vacuum Assist (Optional)

Flow’s patented UltraPierce™ Vacuum Assist technology provides reliable piercing of brittle and laminated materials such as marble, stone, glass, and composites. Fragile materials such as these tend to form craters, cracks, or break during high pressure piercing.

Dual Carriage Cutting Head (Optional)

Dual Carriage Cutting Head (Optional)

For operations who require large format cutting at high speed the Mach 500 can be fitted with a second carriage which enables the system to cut on both sides of the cutting table simultaneously.

Mach 500 Controller

Mach 500 Controller

Take your control console with you as you work! The Mach 500 has a mobile console controller with a 17” screen which gives the flexibility to move freely about your waterjet as required.


CF 900 Pressure Hopper

CF 900 Pressure Hopper

The Flow CF 900 is a dual hopper continuous abrasive feed system which precisely monitors the availability of abrasive during the entire cutting process. This ensures your cutting process is never stopped due to garnet refilling. Level sensors on the unit monitor abrasive levels and when it is almost empty, the unit automatically de-pressurizes and refills the hopper with abrasive from the garnet storage tank.

Industrial Chiller (Optional)

Industrial Chiller (Optional)

For pump cooling and continuous operation during high ambient temperatures, we recommend the inclusion of an industrial chiller. Key features of the Champion series include a high efficiency scroll compressor, advanced microprocessor control, air cooled condensers and the innovative in-tank evaporator configuration which further increases operating efficiency.
