Abrasive water-jets ‘capable of cutting virtually any material’ launched

A new line of abrasive water-jets “capable of cutting virtually any material” has been launched.

OMAX Corporation has announced the launch of their new GlobalMAX range, available exclusively through international distribution.

“The GlobalMAX product line was created to extend our waterjet engineering and manufacturing technology base to more customers,” said Stephen Bruner, vice president of marketing at OMAX Corporation.

 “The product line features our proven direct drive pump technology, easy-to-use software, and innovative drive technology.

 “We build waterjet systems that help our customers make money in the short and long term and this product line is no exception. With GlobalMAX, OMAX aims to redefine value-oriented waterjets.”

 The GlobalMAX product line, which offers a completely integrated system of pump, table, and advanced motion control system, will be produced in Kent, Washington and will be available in a 3m x 1.5m cutting bed size.

There are also two direct drive pump sizes available, 20HP and 30HP.

 Like all OMAX abrasive waterjets, the GlobalMAX can cut almost any material and a wide variety of material thicknesses without any heat-affected zone (HAZ).

 The machine does X/Y axis cutting with three degrees of freedom and has a number of compatible accessories, including a terrain follower, a pneumatic drill and a bulk garnet feed hopper.

 The new GlobalMAX line will debut at the CIMT show this April in Beijing, China and is available in international markets outside of the United States.
