Abrasive waterjet system brings performance and value to oil and gas part production
KENT, Wash. – At the 2014 Global Petroleum Show, June 10-12 at Stampede Park, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, OMAX Corporation will showcase its all-new next generation MAXIEM 1530 JetMachining® Center paired with an A-Jet® 5-axis cutting head and efficient 40 hp direct drive pump in booth 1694. Attendees will learn how the company’s advanced abrasive waterjet technology can cost-effectively produce quality parts without heat-affected zones, which is often a requirement of the oil and gas industry.
Well suited for high-volume fabrication shops and metal service centers, the MAXIEM 1530 has an X-Y cutting travel of 3 meters by 1.5 meters (10 feet by 5 feet 2 inches). Through the company’s Intelli-MAX® Software Suite and direct drive pump technology, the 1530 easily machines steel, titanium, and other metals as well as challenging materials such as composites and laminates with no delamination. Furthermore, the machine cuts parts directly from multiple materials with a single tool to reduce set-up time and material usage.
With the A-Jet cutting head accessory, the MAXIEM 1530 produces precise angled cuts and bevels while automatically correcting for the taper normally found in an abrasive waterjet cut. The A-Jet adds two motion axes, enabling the nozzle to tilt over a range of 0 degrees to 60 degrees from the vertical position for 5-axis cutting. It can also easily cut countersunk holes and machine parts with complex geometries. With its additional axes of motion, the A-Jet allows production of beveled edges in preparation for welding operations.
