Waterjet Technology Offers Versatility, Productivity

OMAX Corporation will provide a comprehensive and customized machining experience through real-world cutting demonstrations, live applications assistance and interactive educational opportunities at FABTECH 2016.

"In booth C27047, OMAX will feature the robust bridge-style OMAX 80X equipped with Tilt-AJet and rotary axis, along with the cost-effective MAXIEM 1530 with an AJet," said a company spokesperson. "Powered by OMAX's user-friendly Intelli-MAX Software Suite, both machines will tackle a variety of real-world cutting challenges in a wide range of materials."

OMAX abrasive waterjets can cut complex parts out of nearly any material, including but not limited to metal, plastic, glass, ceramics, stone and composites. The Intelli-MAX software supports more than 90 different part file formats, including standard 2-D DXF files and advanced 3-D shapes. "Unlike other material removal processes, waterjet systems can also cut extremely hard, reflective and nonconductive materials, making it a highly efficient and productive alternative," said the spokesperson.

"We want FABTECH visitors to experience first-hand how the speed, performance and versatility of abrasive waterjet technology can meet their application challenges regardless of the industries they serve," said Stephen Bruner, Vice President of Marketing for OMAX. "Waterjet technology creates a wealth of opportunity for shops looking to grow."

As part of the immersive booth experience, live cutting demonstrations will highlight the precision, taper-free cutting and 3-D cutting capabilities of the company's Tilt-A-Jet and A-Jet technologies as well as the ease of use of waterjet machining provided by minimal fixturing requirements, no tool change outs and simple software programming. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try out OMAX's Intelli-MAX software to see first-hand how the software increases the speed and ease of part programming.

Application specialists and certified OMAX technicians will be on hand to address general and specific questions about cutting speeds, material thicknesses, cycle times, tolerances and maintenance best practices.

Featured Technology at FABTECH

The OMAX 80X JetMachining Center cuts a wide range of materials and thicknesses for large-scale components and multi-part projects, and handles materials from metals to advanced composites to non-tempered glass. The 80X features the company's exclusive 100 HP EnduroMAX pump that allows for faster part processing with 60,000 PSI continuous operation.

The Tilt-A-Jet's advanced automated taper compensation achieves virtually zero taper for the precision cutting of parts with square, taper-free edges, including interlocking pieces and dove tail fittings, all while maintaining high cutting rates. With the water-resistant rotary axis head for complex 3-D parts production, the OMAX machine's capabilities expand to cut in as many as 6 axes.

Designed, assembled and tested in the United States, the MAXIEM 1530 JetMachining Center is built for fabrication shops, metal service centers, trade schools and job shops as well as architectural, sign, stone and gasket shops. The AJet cuts accurate beveled edges at angles determined by the machine operator or part program and positions to accuracies of ±0.09° (±6 arc minutes). OMAX's Rapid Water Level Control allows for quiet and clean submerged cutting and fits on all MAXIEM JetMachining Centers.

Both machines at the show will be powered by efficient OMAX direct drive pumps designed to deliver more than 90% of the electrical input power to the cutting nozzle for higher cutting speeds.
