EnduroMAX 100HP pump

Introducing 100HP Direct-Drive Pump at IMTS

At IMTS 2014, OMAX Corporation revealed its new 100HP direct-drive pump with EnduroMAX® technology in Booth #N-6228. Show attendees discovered how the pump provides increased efficiency, improved reliability and lower operating costs by delivering more JetPower at the nozzle, equal to today's 135HP intensifier designs.

OMAX's 100HP direct-drive pump features the durable...

OMAX and Spatial Co-Develop 3D Tool Solution for Waterjet Machining

OMAX Corporation, the leading provider of advanced abrasive waterjet solutions, and Spatial Corp., the leading provider of 3D development components for manufacturing applications, have combined their technologies to create what could be considered the market's easiest-to-use 3D tool pathing solution. The new Intelli-CAM™ software tool for OMAX JetMachining® Centers generates 3D...

Machining Composites With Abrasive Waterjet

Cutting composite material is a perfect application for abrasive waterjets. A precision waterjet with a taper compensating head will machine 1/4" thick carbon fiber as fast as 180 inches/minute at 60,000 psi with taper of less than 0.001" per side. And 13/16" thick G10 can be machined as fast as 40 inches/minute at 60,000 psi with the same precision.

While speed and...

Micro AWJ Technology for Meso-Micro Machining

Waterjet technology has technological and manufacturing merits that cannot be matched by most established machine tools. There is considerable demand for downsizing beam diameters of abrasive-waterjets (AWJs) to reduce costs for machining of various microproducts. Current production AWJ systems are limited to cutting features around 200 to 300 μm due to difficulties in further downsizing AWJ...

Micro Abrasive-Waterjet Technology

Waterjet technology has come a long way since its commercialization in the late 1970’s. It has evolved from merely a rough cutting tool to a precision machine tool, competing on equal footing with established tools such as lasers, mechanical milling and routing tools,EDM, ultrasonics, photochemical etching, and various CNC tools.

The versatile waterjet technology inherently has...

Versatility of Waterjet Technology: From Macro to Macro Machining for Most Materials

Waterjet technology has matured rapidly and become one of the mainstream precision machine tools since commercialized in the late 1970’s. Waterjets have several inherent features that are superior to most conventional machine tools. Abrasive-waterjets are nowadays highly automated with PC-based CAD/CAM software that controls and operates the hardware (pump, nozzle, abrasive feeding,...

Research in Waterjet Technology Lead to Advanced Materials Development

Florida State University's High-Performance Materials Institute is paving the way when it comes to narrowing the gap between research and practical use of a new, high-performance composite material that could be up to 10 times lighter and 250 times stronger than steel, twice as hard as diamond, and highly conductive to electricity and heat. This advanced material, sometimes referred to as...

The Promise of Waterjet Technology for Micromachining

There are numerous compelling benefits of using waterjet technology to produce parts or part features smaller than 300 microns. Developers and researchers are getting close to breaking the barriers that stand in the way of micromachining in the 150- to 200- micron range and below. This research report outlines the issues associated with making very finely detailed parts using the abrasive...

2-D + 3-D = 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting

While five-axis operations such as bevel cutting and other weld prep operations have been possible on abrasive waterjet machines for some time, the capability to process 3D parts such as tubes and pipes on the same waterjet is relatively new. This is opening up new possibilities for metal fabricators.

Shops that once focused primarily on flat 2D work now have the opportunity to take on...
