The 2000, 3000, and 4000 series waterjets are the latest additions to the JetCutting lineup from Maxiem, a division of Omax Corp. According to the company, they mimic Omax’s JetMachining centers by incorporating the same 50,000-psi direct-drive pump technology, Intelli-Max Software and Intelli-Trax linear drive technology.
Floor- and tank-mounting options expand configuration possibilities and USB ports and power/pause controller interfaces are easy to access, the company says. Other features include high-pressure track plumbing for additional X-axis coverage and compatibility with the DualBridge system, which utilizes two Y bridges to increase productivity.
