At WESTEC 2015, OMAX Corporation demonstrated the advanced automated taper compensation capabilities of its award-winning Tilt-A-Jet cutting head, which are made possible through the company's Intelli-MAX 21 Software Suite for OMAX JetMachining Centers.
The Tilt-A-Jet accessory enables OMAX machines to achieve virtually zero taper with most materials for the precision cutting of parts with square, taper-free edges, including interlocking pieces and dove tail fittings. Through the control software, the Tilt-A-Jet automatically calculates and adjusts the angle of the nozzle to accurately remove the natural taper from the finished part by transferring it to the scrap part of the material—all while maintaining extremely high cutting rates.
OMAX Corporation designs all of its accessories, including the Tilt-A-Jet, to be retrofitable to its existing machine models. Furthermore, the company is continuously improving upon its Intelli-MAX control software to meet the diverse and changing needs of manufacturers. Such software updates are free to OMAX customers throughout the life of their machines.
