Precise abrasive waterjet cutting
A waterjet utilizes a high-pressure stream of water to erode a narrow line in the stock material. To cut a wider range of materials from tool steel to titanium to foam, a granular (typically garnet) abrasive is added to the waterjet, increasing the cutting power.
OMAX is the leading manufacturer in the scope of precision abrasive waterjet cutting. For a precise cut, you have to control the waterjet precisely, otherwise, the water jet will be deflected in the material.
With hard materials, the water jet is compressed (V-shaped cutting gap). In soft material, it spreads (A-shaped cutting gap). Various physical phenomena are recorded by the OMAX control software and can be precisely compensated by automatic swivel movements of the angle head.
Our patented nozzle technology combines decades of experience in precise waterjet cutting. An extensive expert database with technical specifications for a wide range of materials makes it possible to control the surface and to cut quality by simply selecting between 5 quality levels. Surface finishes of Rz 18 / Ra 2.5 are achievable. Depending on the material, workpiece thickness and cutting model, accuracies of ± 0.01 to ± 0.10 mm are achievable.
