Omax’s 60120 JetMachining Center cuts large, complex parts ranging to 1.5 × 3 m in a range of materials, including composites, exotic alloys, traditional metals and rubber. The bridge-style abrasive waterjet machine features a 29-kW EnduroMAX pump for faster cutting speeds and a Tilt-A-Jet cutting head for greater precision. The cutting head is said to achieve zero taper for high-tolerance parts with square edges, including interlocking pieces and dovetail fittings. Omax’s Intelli-TRAX high-precision linear drive technology provides long-term accuracy in harsh manufacturing environments. The watercutting machine is equipped with the company’s Intelli-MAX software suite, which 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 material.
