Oct 12 - Oct 14

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.

  • Lowest electrical consumption compared to other pump technology
 

What Owners Say

  • 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.
  • We like having a waterjet as opposed to plasma or laser because it's more diverse.

    Tim Trotter, President of Troco Custom Fabricators
  • We came to the realization that waterjet was a critical tool for efficient prototyping for several reasons. It's faster, easier to set up and operate and handles more materials than traditional machine tools.

    Dr. Coope of British Columbia Cancer Agency’s Genome Science Centre
  • We realized how much money we saved if we kept most of our cutting work in-house instead of outsourcing.

    Mr. Makis of Custom Precision Technologies
  • The OMAX machine made it possible for us to survive during this very difficult economic period.
