MECSPE SHOW

Mar 26 - Mar 28

Designed for a wide range of machining needs, the MAXIEM 1530 sets a higher standard for precision abrasive waterjet machining. The rigid tank design is scaled to handle common plate sizes with room to spare. The advanced linear motion system uses digital linear encoders to provide instant micron-level cutting head position feedback to the controller to assure accurate part production. Equipped with a diamond-integrated MAXJET 5i Nozzle, the 1530 can cut virtually any material quickly and efficiently, maximizing profitability.

  • Optional scissor-style hard plumbing adds another level of safety by using contained high-pressure components, as well as contributes to a smaller footprint, lower maintenance, and higher reliability
  • Optional Rapid Water Level Control for cleaner, safer, and quieter submerged cutting completes most work below 80 dBA
  • Optional Bulk Abrasive Delivery System transports garnet from the assembly's large hopper into the Zero Downtime Hopper located on the Z-Axis
  • Optional Variable Speed Solids Removal System (VS-SRS) designed for industrial use increases uptime through automated solids removal
  • Optional IntelliCAM software program is available with two tools in one that can generate either 2D or 3D tool paths from 3D models.
  • Highly efficient, industry-proven direct drive pumps available up to 40 hp with operating efficiencies up to 85%
  • Uses substantially less cooling water than inefficient hydraulic intensifier pumps
  • Lowest electrical consumption compared to other pump technology
 

What Owners Say

  • Waterjet cutting technology has greatly increased our manufacturing capacity and given us the ability to cut virtually any metal, glass, plastic and composites. Anyone considering new equipment for cutting in manufacturing should explore waterjet.

    Tom Bezaire of CenterLine (Windsor) Ltd.
  • Instead of three to four hours to take a specimen to rough finish with a saw, we can accomplish the same process in 45 minutes on the MAXIEM.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • It also gives us an advantage from a throughput perspective because we're able to provide near-net-shape specimens to other departments for the next steps in that material's certification procedure.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • Thanks for being a really good company to work with!

    Frank Connolly of Kuest Corp
  • The waterjet gives our employees the opportunity to learn new skills and, because we can set it up for automated cutting to run unat­tended, it frees up our employees to focus on other mission essential tasks.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.

The art of waterjet cutting

You wouldn’t think a story involving conceptual art and a university-based maker space would have a lot to do with metal fabricating, but you’d be wrong in this one instance. In fact, if your shop has ever thought about expanding its cutting capabilities with a waterjet, you might want to keep reading.

The story begins in 2016 when the University of North Carolina-Asheville’s...Read More »
