Industrial waterjet manufacturer Flow International Corp. (Kent, Wash., USA) announced on Aug. 13 that it has received a contract worth more than $5 million to manufacture and install a Composite Machining Center abrasive waterjet and routing machine tool system. This machine will be used for a major single-aisle airframe program.

"Over the past decade, waterjets have become the standard for meeting the aerospace industry's production requirements as lighter weight composites have become the preferred material. Flow is uniquely positioned to serve this segment through our deep experience and innovative technology as evidenced by the equipment we have been and are supplying to major wide body airframe programs," said Charley Brown, president and CEO, Flow International. "This order represents a significant step into the future as the industry begins moving to composites for single aisle and regional aircraft."
