The ProtoMAX® can cut through nearly any material including: aluminum, titanium, stone, carbon fiber, and G10 composite. The compact machine footprint combined with its comprehensive versatility makes the ProtoMAX an ideal abrasive waterjet for prototyping, educational applications, or as a complement to a larger machine shop. The pump and cutting table are on casters for easy relocation. Work material is submerged under water for quiet cutting that won’t disrupt your work space.

  • With the clamshell cover and submerged cutting, ProtoMAX is safe and quiet (approx. 76 db).
  • The same IntelliMAX® software that runs our larger machine also runs the ProtoMAX making it a great learning tool.
  • IntelliMAX Proto® comes with unlimited software seats.
  • Cuts virtually any material under 1 in. thick with a 12 in. by 12 in. cutting area.
  • Though compact, the ProtoMAX delivers 30,000 psi cutting power with a 5 hp pump.
  • Like all OMAX abrasive waterjets, the ProtoMAX cuts with no heat-affected zone and no change to the material properties.
  • The waterjet plugs into a 240V AC single phase outlet and does not require hardwiring.

What Owners Say

  • Thanks for being a really good company to work with!

    Frank Connolly of Kuest Corp
  • Crafting these works of art requires a significant R&D effort that includes evaluating design concepts, testing specialized materials, and prototyping. Early in our development process, we find that ProtoMAX gives us a rapid means to evaluate form, fit, and function to optimize design concepts and path to production.

    Bob Kramer of Kramer Knives
  • The capabilities of the ProtoMAX are amazing and the Intelli-MAX software is intuitive and easy to use. I like the ProtoMAX because it exposes our students to a powerful machine tool and CAM software which will prepare them for careers in engineering and manufacturing.

    Kelly Stevenson of Wyandotte High School
  • Excellent service. Answered all our questions and gave us some additional tips.

    Miles Pepper of Washington State University
  • They are constantly asking us how they are made and what machines we are using. It will only be a matter of time until they figure out that we make our parts on a waterjet.

    Dan Dunphy of Dunphy's Cycle Machining
