The MicroMAX JetMachining Center is the ideal solution for ultra-precision abrasive waterjet machining. Utilizing advanced high precision optical linear encoders, innovative vibration isolation, and proven software control systems, the MicroMAX JetMachining Center is capable of a positioning accuracy of less than five microns while retaining all the advantages of abrasive waterjet machining. It comes standard with a precision 7/15 Mini MAXJET® 5 Nozzle. The MicroMAX JetMachining Center cuts no heat-affected zone (HAZ), so no secondary processing is required. The MicroMAX JetMachining Center can machine stainless steel, titanium, carbon fiber, PEEK, glass, nitinol, graphite, copper, composites, laminates, and more, with high precision and smooth finishing, for either prototyping or production.

What Owners Say

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

Torres of Amaida Machine Shop, LLC

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.

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

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

Peter of Asterisk Inc

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

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

Peter of Carapace Armor Technology

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

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 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.

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 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...Read More »
