OMAX Machine OMAX Machine OMAX Machine OMAX Machine

The OMAX 55100 JetMachining® Center is the largest of our cantilever-style machines. With a completely sealed and protected Ball Screw Drive System, the OMAX 55100 is a robust and reliable workhorse for shops using larger stock. This model comes standard with an OMAX MAXJET® 5 Nozzle and a Bulk Abrasive Delivery System. It rapidly and precisely gets the job done, maximizing both machine time and profit margins.

  • Table size of 10' 6' x 5' 5' (3,200 mm x 1,650 mm)
  • A cantilever Y-axis on a bridge X-axis, with a Motorized Z-Axis allows for material loading from three open sides
  • A work envelope offering an X-Y cutting travel of 8' 4" x 4' 7" (2,540 mm x 1,397 mm)
  • Fastest cutting speeds and best precision compared to any abrasivejet in the industry and is backed by our exclusive Intelli-MAX® Software with real world cutting data
  • Machines a wide range of materials and thicknesses, from metals and composites to glass and plastics
  • Programmable Motorized Z-Axis with a precision OMAX MAXJET®5i Nozzle can boost cutting productivity and process efficiency
  • No additional water required for pump cooling
  • Tilt-A-Jet® taper compensating abrasivejet cutting head (available as an option)
  • Small, efficient footprint for minimal floorspace utilization
  • Precision X-Y Axis rigidly mounted to the cutting table
  • Machines a wide range of materials and thicknesses, from metals to glass
  • Pre-loaded linear bearings and precision ball screws
  • Does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses
  • Low maintenance, high reliability scissor-style hard plumbing
  • No tool changes and minimal fixturing reduces setup by 50% or more

  • Leaves behind a satin-smooth edge, reducing secondary operations
  • Rapid Water Level Control for quiet and clean submerged cutting
  • No noxious gases, liquid or oils used in, or caused by, the machining process
  • Bulk Abrasive Delivery System transports garnet from the assembly's large hopper into the Zero Downtime Hopper located on the Z-Axis
  • EnduroMAX pump technology delivers the highest nozzle horsepower in the industry for faster and more efficient cutting
  • Optional Variable Speed Solids Removal System (VS-SRS) designed for tough industrial use increases uptime through automated solids removal
  • Completes most work below 80 dBA at one meter for submerged cutting
  • Shipped as a completely pre-assembled and factory-tested system
  • Environmentally “green” system with quiet and clean operation with low electrical consumption
  • Highly robust and reliable pump design capable of over 1,000 hours between maintenance
  • Does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses
  • No tool changes and minimal fixturing reduces setup by 50% or more

What Owners Say

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

With reverse engineering, we've essentially been able to take blueprints, sketches, and mylars, scan them and input them into the OMAX software. We're able to trace over the original blueprint and use the scaling features to cut a prototype.

Scott of Waterjet West

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

Peter of Asterisk Inc

The dining table was a very exciting project which could not have been done without the OMAX.

Peter of Carapace Armor Technology

The motion control that OMAX has is superior to other machines that are out there. The things my customers comment on the most is the quietness of the machine and its accuracy and repeatability.

Ted of Hydrocut Waterjet

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

Jack of Jack's Machine Co.

In the morning, we can go through and cut an entire product out and have a prototype put together because we can do everything in-house and have the accuracy of the waterjet.

Joel of Jacyl Technology

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

I advertise having the Tilt-A-Jet for cutting tight tolerance; however, when quoting a specific project I can use it as my secret weapon to meet my customer's accuracy guidelines. This allows me to produce taper free parts.

Ed Wenz of MarZee Waterjet Services

Because of the OMAX waterjet machine and the ease-of-use with the software, it allows us to nest parts in materials and get more pieces per sheet.

Shane of TruPart Manufacturing Inc.

The OMAX machine made it possible for us to survive during this very difficult economic period,
