Waterjet manufacturer Omax announces the U.S. governments purchase of several of its JetMachining Centers, an order amounting to more than $2 million. The order, which spanned the fourth quarter of 2010, includes several standard and two customized machines for various branches of the government.
Two of the machines slated for NASA feature a modified Z-axis height to meet specific project requirements. Another machine slated for an Army arsenal has been custom-designed to include a DualBridge system, four waterjet heads and quad pumps.
Omax has been supplying equipment to the government since 1997, and with more than 40 machines located in various facilities worldwide, the Air Force is one of the company’s largest customers. The company says most of the machines it sells to the government are used for upkeep of legacy equipment, including cutting metal and aircraft aluminum for airframe maintenance, titanium for artillery and plating for transport vehicles.
