Waterjets in Addison, TX


Waterjet History
40 years ago, a small group of former Boeing research scientists started what is now known as Flow International Corporation, the leading manufacturer of ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) technology with approximately 60 percent worldwide market share. A few years later, Dr. Mohamed Hashish invented the process of adding abrasives to the standard waterjet to enable it to cut through any hard material. This technology has led the waterjet to be used in all types of industries, ranging form automotive to aerospace.

Waterjet technology has continued to evolve over the past few decades, and today's waterjets are used to cut everything from aluminum for boats, to composites for sporting goods, to fabric and plastics used for automotive interiors, and even granite for kitchen countertops.
 
How The Waterjet Works
Here at HollyFab, we are proud to have pioneered the Flow Waterjet technology in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. We use the Flow Waterjet because it allows us to easily cut through a wide variety of materials with incredible precision including metal, stone, plastic, glass, ceramics, rubber, wood and more. In its simplest form, it's just water that gets pressurized up to 87,000 psi and flows from a pump into a cutting head. Watch the below video for an up-close look at how the technology works.
