OMAX® Corp. offers the MAXIEM® 1530 abrasive waterjet machine. It has an XY cutting travel of 10 ft. 2 in. by 5 ft. 2 in., making it suitable for fabrication shops and metal service centers. Featuring Intelli-MAX® software and direct-drive pump technology, the machine cuts parts from almost all materials.
With the available A-Jet® cutting head accessory, the machine produces precise angled cuts and bevels while automatically correcting for the taper normally found in an abrasive waterjet cut, states the company. The accessory adds two motion axes, enabling the nozzle to tilt 0 to 60 degrees from the vertical position for 5-axis cutting and allowing the production of beveled edges. It also cuts countersunk holes and machine parts with complex geometries.
