Compact cantilever waterjet machine brings cutting speed and accuracy to shops with limited floor space
KENT, Wash.- At TECMA 2013, taking place March 5-8 at the Expo Bancomer Sante Fe in Mexico City, OMAX Corporation will demonstrate the fast, precise cutting performance of its compact 5555 JetMachining Center paired with an EnduroMAX® Pump and Tilt-A-Jet® cutting head equipped with a MiniJet nozzle in Stand No 1022.
The OMAX 5555 is a robust, reliable cantilever-style abrasive waterjet machine that easily handles a wide range of production runs across various industry segments. A perfect fit for space-challenged facilities, the 5555 can cut complex parts up to 1.2 meters by 1.2 meters in size from a variety of materials and thicknesses, including advanced composites, exotic alloys, traditional metals and rubber.
Like all OMAX JetMachining Centers, the 5555 comes equipped with the company's intuitive Intelli-MAX® Software Suite that provides higher cutting speeds and greater precision than competitive abrasive waterjet machines. The Intelli-MAX Software, which runs on the Windows® operating system, precisely calculates the velocity of a tool path at over 2,000 points per inch, allowing for complete control over the motion of an abrasive waterjet. The latest Intelli-MAX 19 Software meets the growing trend of manufacturers processing 3D components by supporting up to six axes of coordinated motion. Free software upgrades and training at the OMAX headquarters in Kent, Washington are available to all OMAX JetMachining Center owners.
Thanks to the Intelli-MAX Software Suite, the award-winning Tilt-A-Jet cutting head accessory offers highly advanced automated taper removal capabilities. It achieves virtually zero taper with no reduction in cutting speed for the precision cutting of high tolerance parts with square, taperfree edges, including interlocking pieces and dovetail fittings. Through the control software, the Tilt-A-Jet automatically calculates and adjusts the angle of the nozzle to accurately remove the natural taper from the finished part by transferring it to the scrap part of the material.
With so many diverse offerings in its product portfolio, OMAX Corporation offers the broadest range of table sizes, pumps, accessories, software and support on the market. Moreover, the company's abrasive waterjet technology provides a flexible and beneficial alternative to conventional machining operations. In fact, with OMAX waterjet technology, manufacturers can accomplish quick turnaround of accurate parts without the hassle of tool changes or complex fixturing, as well as achieve smooth surface finishes without the need for secondary machining.
