Tilt-A-Jet

  • Tilt-A-Jet Banner

The Tilt-A-Jet represents the latest OMAX innovation in the continuing search for more accurate abrasive waterjet machining. The Tilt-A-Jet lets the OMAX JetMachining Center achieve virtually zero taper with most materials. The Tilt-A-Jet can position the nozzle at an angle calculated by the software to exactly offset the taper from the abrasivejet. Taper doesn't disappear--it just gets moved to the scrap part of the material, leaving your part with exactly square edges.

  • Easily make interlocking pieces, dovetail fittings, and lead ins without taper to reduce secondary machining
  • Tilting point positioned at material surface to reduce X-Y motion
  • Easy to use, with no special programming required
  • Continuously adjusts at thousands of points per inch along path
  • Can be used on OMAX machines from the 2626 to the 160X
  • Automatic re-squaring feature ensures nozzle is square to the table
  • Ability to change angles quickly, further enhancing cutting speed
  • Compatible with Precision Optical Locator and Rotary Axis
  • Faster cutting of high precision taper free parts with no need to slow down to eliminate taper
  • Servo-controlled programmable precision Z-axis with 6” of travel
  • Faster cutting due to “tilt forward” capability
  • Advanced servo design results in virtually zero backlash
  • Programmable manual tilt up to ±9° for the maximum tilt angle
  • Automatic taper elimination without any programming

Options

  • Terrain Follower automatically adjusts to accommodate warped flat plate
  • Rotary Axis allows for complex 6-axis 3D parts and precision beveled pipe fittings
  • 0.030" Fusible Mixing Tube for finer kerf size

Requirements

  • A bridge-style OMAX JetMachining Center (for cantilever-style OMAX JetMachining Centers, contact an OMAX sales representative for details)
  • OMAX 9-axis PC-based controller
  • OMAX Intelli-MAX 18 Software Suite or later for taper compensation

Application Usage

Weld Prep Cutting

The A-Jet makes cutting bevels simple, and software controls help to eliminate taper.

3D Machining

Through advanced yet easy-to-use software enhancements such as XData, the A-Jet is capable of cutting complex three dimensional shapes quickly and accurately. Simply set the cutting angle to the drawing entity, and the software automatically sets the A-Jet to accurately and quickly cut the shape.

Taper Compensation

The abrasive waterjet cutting tool consists of millions of tiny abrasive particles. All those particles are accelerated in the nozzle and perform the cut one impact at time. Depending on the cutting conditions, geometry of the cut, the material and other parameters, the cutting edge can take on different shapes that are commonly referred to as taper. A V-shaped cutting kerf will produce a part...Read More »
