OMAX Waterjet utilizes a high pressure stream of water to erode a narrow line in the stock material. To cut a wider range of materials, a granular (typically garnet) abrasive is added to the waterjet, increasing the cutting power. Because the abrasive is added at the nozzle, it is simple to switch between water only and abrasive waterjet cutting. This flexibility greatly enhances the versatility of a waterjet machine, as it can easily switch from cutting ½" (1.27cm) foam gaskets to 4" (10.16cm) titanium brackets.
Our Omax model has one of the highest cutting speeds and best precision compared to any abrasivejet in the industry with the capability to produce parts from carbon steel, stainless steel, hardened tool steel, alloys of all types, aluminum, titanium, copper, brass, glass, carbon fiber-reinforced plastics, glass re-inforced plastics, stone, concrete, ceramics and rubber.
