Why Waterjet Is The Best Method For Cutting Stainless Steel

Almost every machine tool claims they are the best at machining stainless steel. For some applications, the tolerances achieved by most machine tools (and subsequent effects imparted by the machining) is fine. However, when a fabricator or prototype creator is looking to produce a high precision part, have it weld ready, or get it done now, there is really only one method – abrasive waterjets...

Spend Less on Garnet with OMAX

As discussed on this website and in numerous trade magazines, OMAX abrasive waterjet systems can save you money on consumables (EnduroMAX 50 hp consumes as little as 1/3rd of the water used with an intensifier pump). But did you know that operating an OMAX abrasive waterjet system also allows you to cut using less garnet than competing brands?

The Versatility of OMAX Abrasive Waterjets

A state-of-the-art machine tool cutting aluminum, and glass, and steel, and rubber, and composite, and …

Innovation changes how and what we machine. On top of that, industry trends fluctuate with market prices of imported or locally sourced materials. If the price of steel wavers, how will your company react? When the needs of the customers change, how will your machine shop adapt? Can...

Save Money with Optimal Waterjet Software

A waterjet is a machine tool that shows its true benefit when it is cutting complex geometries on a variety of materials. In abrasive waterjets, hardware performance only provides a portion of the potential cutting performance returns. An optimal software controller is capable of extreme precision throughout every angle and curve in a cut while increasing speed of production and reducing cost...

OMAX To Demonstrate Cutting-edge Abrasive Waterjets at FABTECH 2018

KENT, Wash., August 22nd, 2018 – At Fabtech 2018, OMAX® Corporation will demonstrate cutting-edge abrasive waterjet technology. Visitors to the OMAX booth (B6951) will get a first-hand look at OMAX’s 80X with a Tilt-A-Jet®, Rotary, and 100hp EnduroMAX® pump; a GlobalMAX® 1530 with the new 10hp pump and 100lb garnet feed hopper; as well as the new compact ProtoMAX®. With a wide range machines...

Dunphy’s Cycle Machining Offers Limitless Customization with ProtoMAX

“Ever since I was 14 years old I was a gear head,” says Dan Dunphy of Dunphy’s Cycles Machining, LLC. “I almost have a sickness and can’t drive a stock vehicle because I don’t want to be like everyone else. It’s boring."

“In 2016, I began to stay late at a local machine shop with a co-worker. They have an OMAX 2626® waterjet.” Dunphy used the waterjet to make parts for his own 2016...

Streamlining Waterjet Efficiencies

In the motorsport world, it’s not the fastest driver, but the best driver that’s going to win the race. And this concept lends itself well to waterjet cutting processes knowing when to cut faster on those commonline straight edges and how to dial the speed back a few notches to get those smooth corners or beveled edges.

Waterjet cutting technology has certainly been around for...

Taper Compensation

The abrasive waterjet cutting tool consists of millions of tiny abrasive particles. All those particles are accelerated in the nozzle and perform the cut one impact at time. Depending on the cutting conditions, geometry of the cut, the material and other parameters, the cutting edge can take on different shapes that are commonly referred to as taper. A V-shaped cutting kerf will produce a part...

Add extra data to your tool path using the XData feature in LAYOUT

The OMAX CAD software, called LAYOUT, includes a feature that lets you input "extra" data for any entity in a drawing or tool path. We call it XData, short for extra data, and it's great for doing things like specifying pause points, adding a note for the machine operator to display on the screen, or customizing the cutting speed for a specific entity. XData can also be used to...
