Omax Launches Omax TV
The new website currently houses more than 50 videos demonstrating abrasive waterjet technology, waterjet applications and materials capabilities.
Omax Corp. has announced that Omax TV is now live at Omax.com. Omax TV offers a way to access all the video content the company has produced to demonstrate abrasive waterjet technology, waterjet applications and materials capabilities. The website originally went online in early July 2020 for testing before its official launch.
The site currently hosts more than 50 videos that show both old and new types of waterjet machines. Throughout 2020 and into 2021, viewers can expect to see more interviews with Omax waterjet customers as well as regularly updated tips and tricks from the company’s demonstration lab.
Omax says it hopes that Omax TV will become a resource for potential waterjet users as well as for educational institutions looking for reference material on waterjet use. “Omax TV is a wonderful, easy-to-use tool for anyone interested in learning about abrasive waterjet technology,” says Mike Ruppenthal, Omax general manager.
For trimming composite parts, this shop describes where it uses machining centers and where it uses waterjet.
The potential benefits of using waterjet technology to produce parts or part features smaller than 300 microns are compelling. Developers and researchers are getting close to breaking the barriers that stand in the way of micromachining in the 150- to 200-micron range and below.
Soon, industrial users of waterjet metalcutting may be able to cut sheet metal, composites and other materials without abrasives -- or at least with much less abrasive than they're accustomed to using.
