Penn Stainless Products Installs State-Of-The-Art Flow Mach 700 Waterjet

11 November 2020

Penn Stainless Products has recently installed a new Mach 700 Dynamic Waterjet System from Flow Corporation at their Quakertown facility. With two independent bridges, four cutting heads, and a 157" x 479" cutting envelope, this state-of-the-art machine is a significant addition to Penn's waterjet department, which now features six Flow units.

"Penn Stainless has taken its production to another level with the addition of the four-headed Mach 700," said Jody Bleiman, Flow's Northeast Business Manager. "With speeds of over 1400 ipm on a custom-engineered cutting table for optimal material handling and support, Penn can offer throughput and performance that others simply cannot."

Dan Seward, Penn Stainless' Executive Vice President, added, "Waterjet processing is a large – and growing – segment of our business, which more and more of our valued customers depend upon. Given the economic uncertainty everyone has felt the last six months, installation of the Mach 700 really exemplifies our ongoing commitment to both the market and our customers. With the Mach 700 we've significantly bolstered our waterjet capacity and ultimately stepped up to meet our customers' expectations and needs."
