BHR Group’s involvement with water jets began in 1972, with the first International Symposium on Jet Cutting Technology, held at the University of Warwick in Coventry.

The early conferences were aimed at academia, as would be expected from an emerging technology with new research opportunities. As time has progressed the technology has matured and so the conference has become a broad mix of academia, operators, and manufacturers, more about the application of water jets, problem solving and technology transfer, not just the theory. 

Following the successful forum session titled 'Water Jetting in Hazardous Environments, Removing Humans from Risk' at our 2016 conference, the theme for the 2018 conference was automated/robot jetting developments for both planned and emergency applications in potentially hazardous environments.
