Waterjets for large-scale production

Share This Post

OMAX has expanded its next generation Maxiem JetMachining abrasive waterjet cutting machines with the introduction of three larger sizes.

 The first five models in the next generation Maxiem JetMachining Center product line were introduced in April 2014 to meet customer demands for cost-efficient, yet high-performance waterjet cutting technology with more productivity enhancing features. The lineup now comprises eight models including the new 2060, 2080, and 3060.

The 2060 and 2080 models are designed for a range of modern larnge format machining of parts up to 6 ft 7 in. (2 m 178 mm) wide by 20 ft 6 in. (6 m 152 mm) long, and 27 ft 2 in. (8 m 50.8 mm) long, respectively. The 3060 model has a wider work envelope for machining of a range of materials and thicknesses, from metals and composites to glass and plastics. This model features a Y cutting travel of 10 ft 2 in. (3 m 50.8 mm), more than three and a half feet wider than the 2060 model, and an X cutting travel of 20 ft 6 in. (6 m 152 mm).

The machines are designed and built in the US and feature the company’s Intelli-TRAX linear drive system with brushless servo motors, integrated servo drives and linear encoders for constant and continuous feedback on the actual position of the cutting head. The Windows 8 controllers on the machines come pre-loaded with the Intelli-MAX software suite which the company says makes it easy to generate complex geometries and produce quality parts from virtually any type of material.
