Attendees to discover broadest range of advanced waterjet machines and accessories on the market
KENT, Wash. -- OMAX Corporation will demonstrate how modern abrasive waterjet technology cuts simple to complex parts from any material quickly and precisely at WESTEC 2013, taking place Oct. 15 - 17 in Los Angeles,Calif. The affordable, highperformance MAXIEM 1530 JetCutting® Center and A-Jet® cutting head will be among the many advanced solutions to be featured in OMAX booth 1912.
Well suited for smaller fabrication shops and metal service centers, the robust and highly versatile MAXIEM 1530 cost-effectively cuts high-quality parts from most materials, including metal, plastic, ceramic, stone and composites, within a 10 feet 2 inches by 5 feet 2 inches X-Y cutting travel area. The parts are cut directly from the plate with a single tool to reduce set-up time and material usage.
The MAXIEM 1530 JetCutting Center utilizes the company’s intuitive Intelli-MAX® Software Suite that provides faster, more precise and more accessible machining than competitive abrasive waterjet systems. With its patented motion control technology, Intelli-MAX Software ensures the fastest, most accurate waterjet cutting across a wide range of materials. The latest version of the software meets the growing trend of manufacturers processing 3D components by supporting up to five axes of coordinated motion on the MAXIEM.
With an A-Jet cutting head accessory, the MAXIEM 1530 is able to make precise angled cuts and bevels, as well as automatically correct for the taper normally found in an abrasive waterjet cut. The A-Jet adds two motion axes, enabling the cutting nozzle to tilt over a range from 0- degreesto 60-degreesfrom the vertical position. It can be used to easily produce beveled edges or cut countersunk holes, as well as machine parts with complex geometries. With its additional axes of motion, the A-Jet allows production of beveled edges in preparation for welding operations. Furthermore, use of this accessory eliminates the need for many secondary machining and grinding operations
