New Abrasive Waterjet Line

"OMAX Corporation will showcase the new GlobalMAX abrasive waterjets, a line of essentially-featured, reliable and practical machine tools capable of cutting virtually any material," said a company spokesperson.

"The GlobalMAX product line was created to extend our waterjet engineering and manufacturing technology base to more customers," said Stephen Bruner, Vice President of Marketing at OMAX. "The product line features our proven direct drive pump technology, easy-to-use software and innovative motion control technology."

OMAX will feature a machine from each of its three abrasive waterjet product lines. The machines and accessories running live cutting demonstrations include:

  • The OMAX 80X JetMachining Center with a Tilt-A-Jet cutting head, rotary axis and a 50 HP EnduroMAX pump
  • The MAXIEM 1530 with an A-Jet cutting head, rapid water level control and 40 HP pump
  • The GlobalMAX 1508 with 20 HP pump.

The OMAX 80X is a premium performance waterjet machine designed for precision processing large, complex components or multiple parts with speed and precision. The Tilt-A-Jet cutting head's automated taper compensation achieves virtually zero taper cutting without slowing down cutting speed. 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.

The MAXIEM 1530 offers machining advantages in a cost-efficient waterjet machine with many available accessories. The 1530 is suited for fabrication shops, metal service centers, job shops as well as architectural, sign, stone and gasket shops. The A-Jet articulated cutting head cuts accurate beveled edges, angled sides and countersinks. OMAX's rapid water level control allows for quiet and clean submerged cutting.

"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 easy-to-use 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 to other fabrication methods," said the spokesperson.
