Why Direct Drive Pumps?

OMAX® and MAXIEM pumps are the latest in direct-drive pump technology, designed for tough industrial use. They’re compact and quiet, and provide high power efficiency, low water usage, easy maintenance, and low operating cost.

The OMAX® and MAXIEM direct drive pumps deliver more than 85% of the electrical input power to the cutting nozzle. This translates into less energy usage, faster cutting speed per unit of input power, and lower cost per finished part than other pump technologies.
