Today’s waterjets can cut much faster than CNC mills and wire EDM machines, and with high precision. But it is not only the cutting speeds and tight tolerances that make them so attractive. By Dr John H Olsen, vice president of operations at Omax Corporation
The GlobalMax abrasive waterjet system from Omax will measure 3,100 mm by 1645 mm with a 3,050 mm by 1,530 mm cutting bed size. The system has closed loop, brushless servo motors, as well as anodised drive system components.
The latest model of Omax’s MicroMax includes accuracy enhancing upgrades and expanded accessory compatibility.
