OMAX Rotary Head Provides 6-Axis Capabilities
KENT, Wash., June 15, 2015 - OMAX offers several accessories for its OMAX JetMachining Centers to further increase their performance and versatility, including a Rotary Axis head that provides infinite rotation while cutting. The company has made its Rotary Axis even easier to program and expanded its parametric shape library for enhanced 3D pipe cutting.
With a Rotary Axis, OMAX JetMachining Centers have up to 6-axis cutting capabilities that can create accurate complex 3D parts from pre-existing CAD drawings or DXF files. With the expanded parametric shape library, the Rotary Axis is ideal for pipe and tube cutting, simplifying challenging projects such as intersecting pipe fittings. The accessory’s drive head also allows for customized fixtures. Additionally, the versatile attachment design of the Rotary Axis enables users to position the head in various locations in the tank.
Fully submersible and powered by common table controls, the rotary head does not require an additional power supply. The accessory also contains a built-in water drip sensor with warning lights and automatic shutdown. Additionally, the Rotary Axis is equipped with external grease fittings for easy maintenance.
OMAX designs all of its accessories, including the Rotary Axis, to be retrofitable to its existing machine models. Furthermore, the company is continuously improving upon its Intelli-MAX control software, which is now on version 21, to meet the diverse and changing needs of manufacturers. Such software updates are free to OMAX customers throughout the life of their machines.
