Flow International says its Mach 2c is a “value-priced” waterjet designed to be fast and accurate, whether cutting a 3"-thick steel plate or multi-stacked gasket material. It is one of several waterjet products available from the company.
 
The core components—the Paser 4 abrasive cutting system, dynamic waterjet taper control technology, HyPlex Prime pump pairing option and FlowMaster software—are the same components found on the company’s Mach 3 and Mach 4 waterjet series.
 
Designed using finite element analysis (FEA) and thermally stress-relieved steel, the waterjet is suited for high-production applications. Full wrap-around bellows ensure increased component life and accurately cut parts, the company says.
