Flow Waterjet has launched a new Technology Centre (FTC) located in the main Aquarese building in the town of Billy Berclau, 30 minutes from Lille in France. The premises has meeting areas and demo rooms for the lastest Flow Waterjets.

As well as the FTC, Flow has a demo area for “Aquarese by Flow” for their special machines, plus a contract cutting shop for specialist aerospace customers and pre-production. As these parts are normally highly complex, the contract shop is very impressive for customers to visit. In August Flow impressed Trumpf Laser when they performed their first Mach500 demo at the premises.


The Mach 500 series is unmatched in accuracy, quickness and speed, making it your most productive solution. The system is revolutionary in terms of reliability and productivity, backed by the only comprehensive service program in waterjet. Uniquely flexible, the Mach 500 can be everything you want, or just what you need.

Rapid Traverse Maximum:           17.8 m/min

Linear Straightness Accuracy:     ±0.0381 mm/m

Repeatability:                               ±0.03 mm

WD Hearn looks forward to visiting the new Flow Technology Centre in 2017/2018.
