WaterJet information


#1

While preusing a newsgroup I came across this website. It gives a
clear explanation of what waterabrasive technology can do and how it
compares with other cutting technology.

Another one Is Flow. Omax and flow jet are the two main players in
this technology. Any Orange County Chopper fans will find the flow
jet in use in their shop on American Chopper.

Neil,

Thank you for the lead to Flowcorp. What a fascinating site and
technology! In another incarnation, I had started to explore water
jet technology to deal with cutting heavy walled paper tubing. That
was in the mid '80s.

Now if we can come up with an attachment to fit a cutting head and
catcher to a jeweler’s saw frame! Bet jump rings would still be a
pain.

Thankyou. I can take credit for the flow lead, but in fact, the
thanks should go to James and Mike who actually started the water jet
discussion. I came in late :slight_smile:

Sounds interesting. Do you have any info that you may care to share,
or what came of it.

I love technology, and I am constantly looking for new and emerging
technologies to add to my business. Not that water jet is new, but
the level of sophistication is there now to make it a viable tool for
me. I was serioulsy considering purchasing a Flow machine a couple
of months ago, but I am still undecided. I have work for a machine,
which I am currently farming out, but not enough to get permission
from she who must be obeyed :slight_smile:

I guess another month of sulking should do it :slight_smile:

    Now if we can come up with an attachment to fit a cutting head
and catcher to a  jeweler's saw frame!  Bet jump rings would still
be a pain. 

Now there’s a thought :slight_smile:

Best Regards.
