He will also be on hand for questions and additional requested presentations.

  7. Direct Drive Efficiency: Doing More with Less

    The muscle behind waterjet technology is a high-pressure pump that converts electric motor horsepower to nozzle hydraulic horsepower. The more nozzle horsepower, the faster you'll cut. However, with two different pump types used in waterjet cutting systems - hydraulic intensifier pumps and crankshaft-driven direct drive pumps - how do you know which type is actually more effective? Here are a few key differences.

  8. The Whole is Greater than the Sum of the Parts

    When someone looks at adding an abrasive waterjet to their shop, there are many points to consider, such as the size of the machine and the operating requirements. Ultimately, though, it comes down to one thing: money. Whether saving it or making it or a combination of both, money is the dominant concern. With so many variables surrounding abrasive waterjet systems, it is easier for manufacturers to focus on just one aspect and paint that as the only variable of value. For example, stating that a pump is the fastest while ignoring software or table hardware.

  9. The Rest of the Story: Software's Effect on Cutting Speed

    When it comes to evaluating abrasive waterjet performance, cutting speed is typically one of the most important attributes. There's been a lot of discussion in the industry around cutting speed and pump power. But that's not the whole story if you're cutting anything other than a straight line. If you're cutting parts with any kind of complexity, like corners, curves and pierces, software has a huge effect on cutting speed.

  11. OMAX Names Distribution Partners for Fabricators in Mid Atlantic, Southern States

    OMAX Names Distribution Partners for Fabricators in Mid Atlantic, Southern States KENT, Wash., January 4, 2016 - OMAX Corporation, the leading total solutions provider of the world's most advanced abrasive waterjet technology, has signed exclusive distribution agreements with Mid Atlantic Machinery and Southern States Machinery to market, sell and support premium OMAX JetMachining® Centers and versatile MAXIEM® JetMachining Centers to fabricators in the Mid and South Atlantic regions.

  12. EnduroMAX Pump Saves You Money

    The OMAX EnduroMAX pump is more efficient than older intensifier-type pumps, but what does that really mean in day-to-day operations? At the core, it means that the EnduroMAX pump delivers more nozzle horsepower, or JetPower, versus intensifier designs. At the same time, the higher water requirements of the intensifier design means that you will need more input water to deliver less horsepower. The difference is significant, as this infographic shows.

  13. Waterjet Machine Thrusts Ohio Fabricator Into New High-Tech Territory

    Keeping up with the times has been the name of the game for Perfection Fabricators Inc., a successful fabrication shop doing business in Elyria, Ohio since 1973. In the forty years their doors have been open, the company has grown to four times its original size. The increase in job orders also meant a growing need to cut materials their current machinery couldn’t accommodate. Some job requests required, for example, cutting plastic or glass thicker than 0.5 inches. Wanting to keep the jobs in-house to ensure the highest quality and fastest turnaround times, the team at Perfection looked for the perfect complement to their existing equipment. After researching the options, they determined the MAXIEM 1530 JetMachining Center with an A-Jet cutting head and Terrain Follower accessory best suited the company’s needs. Download Full Article
