Micro Abrasive Waterjet Machining with the OMAX MicroMAX

Around the globe, machines and their components are becoming smaller and lighter. The demand for high precision parts from advanced materials with quick turnaround time is growing. OMAX Corporation has answered this demand with the development of the latest generation MicroMAX® abrasive waterjet.

To cut material, an abrasive waterjet accelerates water to a high velocity jetstream...

Micro Abrasive-Waterjet Technology

Waterjet technology has come a long way since its commercialization in the late 1970’s. It has evolved from merely a rough cutting tool to a precision machine tool, competing on equal footing with established tools such as lasers, mechanical milling and routing tools,EDM, ultrasonics, photochemical etching, and various CNC tools.

The versatile waterjet technology inherently has...

OMAX Introduces Taper-Free Cutting in Waterjet Micromachining

With its MicroMAX JetMachining Center, OMAX proves the speed, versatility and accuracy of abrasive waterjet technology now applies to the cutting of micron-level parts or part features from a wide range of materials, including exotic metals, advanced composites, polymer thermoplastics and glass.

Ideal for prototype development and production runs, the MicroMAX is a highly rigid machine...

Micro AWJ Technology for Meso-Micro Machining

Waterjet technology has technological and manufacturing merits that cannot be matched by most established machine tools. There is considerable demand for downsizing beam diameters of abrasive-waterjets (AWJs) to reduce costs for machining of various microproducts. Current production AWJ systems are limited to cutting features around 200 to 300 μm due to difficulties in further downsizing AWJ...
