Omax's 55100 JetMachining Center can handle sheets of material up to 5' × 10', while maintaining a precision of up to 0.003". This machine will be equipped with the Tilt-A-Jet nozzle. This nozzle tilts at exactly the right angle to remove taper from parts and results in parts that achieve high precision without sacrificing cutting speed. In many cases, parts are made faster using the nozzle because it no longer needs to slow down to reduce taper.
The 2652 JetMachining Center provides quick turnaround for the general machine and fabrication shops of precision machining on small to medium sized parts. It can cut standard size sheets of material--steel, aluminum, glass or granite and is large enough to handle most jobs, but small enough that even a small machining shop can afford one.
