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 gets the job done quickly and precisely, maximizing both machine time and profit margins.

  • Uses substantially less cooling water than inefficient hydraulic intensifier pumps
  • Lowest electrical consumption compared to other pump technology
 

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
  • Waterjet cutting technology has greatly increased our manufacturing capacity and given us the ability to cut virtually any metal, glass, plastic and composites. Anyone considering new equipment for cutting in manufacturing should explore waterjet.

    Tom Bezaire of CenterLine (Windsor) Ltd.
  • The waterjet gives our employees the opportunity to learn new skills and, because we can set it up for automated cutting to run unat­tended, it frees up our employees to focus on other mission essential tasks.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing 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
  • We like having a waterjet as opposed to plasma or laser because it's more diverse.

    Tim Trotter, President of Troco Custom Fabricators
