They say that good things come in small packages, and the PROTOMAX® built by OMAX is no exception! Compact and versatile, this abrasive waterjet cutting center offers maximum performance for its size, production reliability and low operating costs.

The compact machine footprint of 41.5″ x 39.5″ (1,054 mm x 1,004 mm) combined with its comprehensive versatility makes the PROTOMAX an ideal abrasive waterjet cutting machine for prototyping, light commercial applications, educational settings or as a complement to a larger machine shop.

With the PROTOMAX, the possibilities are endless: cut nearly any material, including aluminum, titanium, stone, carbon fiber, and G10 composite up to 1-inch (2.5 cm) cutting thickness. Work material is submerged underwater for quiet cutting that won’t disrupt your workspace.

When it comes to power and performance, the PROTOMAX really packs a punch. A best-in-class 5HP pump generating 30,000 PSI pressure and proven direct drive pump technology make the PROTOMAX the most efficient waterjet cutting tool for its size.

The PROTOMAX is as efficient as it is reliable. The pump stops during non-cutting traverses to save electricity, garnet usage is minimized with optimal pressure and cutting models, plus the system is configured with a variable frequency drive for high-performance motor control that reduces energy consumption and maintenance.

Equipped with castors, the PROTOMAX is a true mobile abrasive waterjet cutting center designed for small spaces. It can even fit through a standard doorway! A snap to install, simply wheel the unit into place and plug it into a standard 240VAC outlet. That’s all there is to it!

Set up your machine in no time thanks to the preconfigured OMAX Intelli-MAX® Proto system, advanced CAD software designed for abrasive waterjet systems. Complete with a user-friendly interface, you’ll have everything at your fingertips to get cutting right away!
