Most of WHOI's Ocean Vehicles Are One-Of-A-Kind

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is the world's largest, non-profit oceanographic institute that designs and builds underwater vehicles and research tools to help scientists explore the marine environment. They build vehicles to withstand pressure that exists three to four miles beneath the ocean's surface.

Most of WHOI...

A New Helicopter Model Built With OMAX Innovation

Robinson Helicopter

Frank Robinson has had a long history with helicopters. Fresh out of college, Robinson worked at Cessna on their Skyhook helicopter in the late 1950s, then spent time with Kaman Aircraft and Bell Helicopter before ending up at Hughes Helicopter, where he worked on their highly successful Hughes 500 design. In the early 1970s, though, Robinson saw a market for a small,...

UBC Mentors Generations of Waterjet Savvy Engineering Students

University of British Columbia Engineering Physics School

Each school year, new engineering students at the University of British Columbia’s Engineering Physics School learn how fortunate they are to access a state-of-the-art machine shop for their academic projects. To become a well-rounded engineer, UBC students are encouraged to develop their inventions through rapid prototyping and...

NIST Measures Success With Their OMAX 5555 JetMachining Center

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Headquartered in Gaithersburg, MD, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce.  NIST's mission is to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness. The NIST Fabrication Technology Division, the agency's full-service fabrication...

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...
