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

What Owners Say

  • The waterjet's cold cutting process is cleaner; we don't have to worry about modifying the chemistry of our specimens or intro­ducing heat.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • 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.
  • It also gives us an advantage from a throughput perspective because we're able to provide near-net-shape specimens to other departments for the next steps in that material's certification procedure.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • The OMAX machine made it possible for us to survive during this very difficult economic period.

    Torres of Amaida Machine Shop, LLC
  • 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.
