The Mach 500 Series: Make More
The Mach 500 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. The ultrahigh-pressure pump technology, machine control, cutting heads, industry-leading software, and advanced wrist articulation pioneered by Flow are the foundation of the Mach 500.
We have thousands of combinations we can provide to integrate the right solution directly into your production.

Core Component Options
Cutting Head Technology
The Mach 500 can be configured with any of Flow’s industry leading cutting head technology.
Accurate 5-axis motion, capable of cutting compound angles with high accuracy. Paired with Compass, Dynamic XD is the fastest, most accurate, cutting head with the greatest amount of flexibility.
Incorporates garnet abrasive to create a high-speed stream capable of cutting virtually any hard material via supersonic erosion.
Incredibly precise cutting that is three times faster and more accurate than a conventional waterjet.
Cut with a hair-thin pure waterjet stream, ideal for soft materials.
Each pump can be fully integrated into the Mach 500 system.
6,500 BAR [94,000 PSI]
Get maximum productivity with continuous operating pressures of 6,000 bar [87,000 psi].
4,150 BAR [60,000 psi]
The highest pressure, most advanced direct drive pump available today, with pressures rated at 4,150 bar [60,000 psi].
4,150 bar [60,000 PSI]
The longest lasting, lowest maintenance ultrahigh-pressure pump in the industry with continuous operating pressure at 4,150 bar [60,000 psi].
Intelligence is built right in to the Mach 500. Easy to use Flow software suites allow you to program a part quickly-any material, any thickness.
The world’s fastest, smartest 3D model based CAD/CAM software for waterjet.
The control system that integrates the operation of the pump, cutting head, and XY motion.
The basics of waterjet cutting, made simple. Just input basic cutting parameters, such as material, thickness, and desired edge finish, and FlowPath does the rest.
Full geometric nesting that is optimized for waterjet.
