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.

  • Standard programmable Motorized Z-Axis with a precision OMAX MAXJET 5i Nozzle boosts productivity and process efficiency
  • 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 Intelli-CAM 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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • OMAX solved the 'concept to finished part' problem. What used to take weeks now takes only hours...

    Peter of Asterisk Inc
  • 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.
  • We can cut parts right to size with our OMAX machines. The machines' Tilt-A-Jet accessory, precision table motion and easy-to-use controls are what make that possible.
