Waterjet Offers Cutting Versatility

"At HOUSTEX 2017 in booth 2621, OMAX Corporation will demonstrate how its JetMachining Centers, advanced Intelli-MAX Software Suite and world-class training and support bring versatility and value to manufacturers in a variety of industries, including oil and gas," said a company spokesperson. "Abrasive waterjet cutting provides an efficient way to process parts from a wide range of workpiece materials and thicknesses."

HOUSTEX attendees will experience the MAXIEM 1530 JetMachining Center, one of eight machines in the MAXIEM product line. With an extensive range of accessories, MAXIEM waterjets can be configured to meet a variety of needs, including multi-axis and high capacity production. The MAXIEM 1530 comes standard with a diamond-integrated MAXJET 5i nozzle designed to provide enhanced cutting precision in a variety of materials, including steel, glass, carbon fiber and copper. The MAXIEM's direct drive pump delivers power to the nozzle for fast cutting speeds. "Direct drive pumps provide greater cutting power than other types with the same size electric motors and power consumption levels. They are also quieter and easier to maintain than intensifier pumps," said the spokesperson.

The Intelli-MAX software that controls OMAX waterjets requires no special programming skills and can be learned in just a few days. To get customers up and running, OMAX offers free hands-on training at its headquarters in Kent, WA. The company also provides online training for machine and accessory operation and maintenance, so customers can access training information whenever they need it and at their own pace.

Intelli-MAX software is compatible with more than 90 different file formats, including all major CAD program file types, plus graphics file formats such as .jpg, .gif and .png files. This means almost any 2-D or 3-D part file can be imported directly into an OMAX or MAXIEM waterjet controller and turned into a real part.

Accessories include a rotary axis for 5-axis cutting that is useful for tube and pipe; an A-Jet cutting head for weld-ready edges and countersinks; and a Tilt-A-Jet cutting head for taper-free cutting.

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