Powerful, versatile, efficient or compact: OMAX offers the waterjet machine you need at a price you can afford. Proudly made in the USA, OMAX Corporation is a global leader in advanced abrasive waterjet systems that cut virtually any material and thickness with unmatched speed and accuracy.
OMAX brand waterjets are used in a wide variety of industries. From automotive to aerospace to medical to manufacturing and beyond, these jetmachining centers deliver optimum performance across the board.
OMAX designs and manufactures the most complete line of abrasive waterjets in the world, providing a comprehensive selection of jetmachining centers that feature intuitive software controls and incorporate the most efficient pump technology available.
Waterjet machining is a cut above traditional technologies such as laser, plasma and EDM wire cut for a variety of reasons. Not only can abrasive waterjets cut virtually any material and thickness to close tolerances, their narrow cut and low cutting forces allow for the creation if highly intricate parts, which would be virtually impossible with conventional methods. You can even stack thin materials to increase productivity and lower costs.
Waterjet machines cut all types of materials, including hardened tool steel, aluminum, titanium, glass, stone, wood, carbon fiber, plastics and rubber, for smooth edges with no burn marks, cracking or excess burrs.
What’s more, the fact that waterjet cutting doesn’t require chemicals or heat contributes to a safer working environment. No harmful vapor or smoke, and any dust particles produced during the process are trapped in the water to be safely filtered out later.
WIRE EDM VS WATERJET
Where wire EDM may be more precise, OMAX waterjet can’t be beat when it comes to cutting speed, making cuts 10 times faster than wire EDM. Furthermore, since waterjet is a cold cutting method, there are no heat-affected zones to affect material integrity.
Wire EDM offers more accuracy, better edge quality and can handle very thick parts, but if you are looking for speed, no HAZ or distortion when cutting either conductive or non-conductive materials, then waterjet is your best bet! And OMAX makes the very best.
WHY BUY OMAX WATERJETS
OMAX waterjet machining systems are unlike anything else on the market: accurate and affordable, these abrasive waterjet machines feature innovative motion control technology with proprietary software in a wide range of sizes and configurations which allow you to enjoy the widest accessory compatibility on the market.
With its compact footprint, PROTOMAX® is a small but scrappy abrasive waterjet cutting machine, ideal for prototyping, educational applications or as a complement to a larger machine shop.
GLOBALMAX® gets you in the jetmachining game with a range of basic and easy to use features deliver performance and maximum productivity through simplified operation and easy maintenance.
The most popular OMAX series, MAXIEM® is a true workhorse boasting tolerances of ±0.003″ (±0.08 mm) to ±0.005″ (±0.127 mm). Able to cut through virtually any material, MAXIEM® is designed to perform across a wide range of modern, large-format machining needs.
The OMAX® series leads the pack in precision machining, offering tolerances as tight as ±0.001″ (±0.025 mm), maximum speed of 180 inches/minute and a completely sealed and protected ball-screw drive system, this robust and reliable cantilever-style jetmachining centre is perfect for high precision, smaller dimension cutting.
OMAX abrasive waterjet cutting machines are as cost-efficient as they are high-performance: fast transition time from drawing to cutting, rapid cutting speed, minimized garnet usage thanks to optimal pressure and high-tech cutting models, variable frequency drives and pumps programmed to stop during non-cutting traverses all contribute to reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs.
Advanced control software automatically programs cutting paths from CAD drawings for accurate short-run or one-off production. Fully automated, integrated nesting software controls mass production of parts with minimal waste.
Spark & Co. has been a distributor of OMAX waterjet cutting systems (PROTOMAX®, GLOBALMAX®, MAXIEM® and OMAX® series) for over a decade.
