  9. Buying a Waterjet: A Personal Journey

    "Just when we were about to make a decision, we received an email from OMAX waterjets describing their new line of waterjets known as the MAXIEM. I was expecting to read the typical descriptions about the quality of the ballscrews, the precision and accuracy of the cuts, and of course the reliable and consistently high psi achieved by the hydraulic drive pump, but to my surprise, the MAXIEM line of waterjets use neither ballscrews nor a hydraulic intensifier pump— they use a direct drive pump. We stopped in our tracks and decided to call OMAX and have them send out a rep to meet with us, because the price of these new MAXIEM machines were significantly less expensive – not cheap – but less expensive than any other competing American brand. We wanted to get the whole story." "Buying a Waterjet: A Personal Journey" is by Mark McMunn. Reprinted by permission, courtesy Slippery Rock Gazette.

  18. Should You Own a Waterjet?

    "It may actually be better to continue to cut slabs by hand with something like an Accuglide system before you buy a bridgesaw, because the waterjet will go a very long way in eliminating mistakes in the sink cutout process. I can assure you that once your fabricators see that they will never again have to do the back-breaking work of making large sink cutouts, shop morale will go way up."

  19. When it’s Time to Remove Solids

    No matter if you cut glass once a week or manufacture steel parts three shifts a day, abrasive and discarded material builds up in the tank. At some point the solids will build up so much that it will affect your waterjet’s efficiency and accuracy. How much cutting you do determines how often you will need to remove solids from your tank. When that time comes, you’ll need to remove those solids to continue your waterjet operations. Solids removal is typically done one of three ways:
