Affordability and performance emphasized with MAXIEM lineup
The 4000 Series is the largest design option for the JetCutting centers, with X-Y cutting travel areas ranging from 320×160 to 640×160 inches. OMAX Corporation’s MAXIEM Waterjets division has expanded its product line with 16 new JetCutting Centers, a development it said allows more machining and fabricating operations to achieve “industry-standard performance at an incredible value.” The Washington-based company specializes at designing high-pressure water-cutting tables, and it introduced the MAXIEM series two years ago to appeal to operations that have “affordability” as a guiding factor in the selection of production systems. It emphasized that the MAXIEM line incorporates its established cutting technology in an affordable, highly productive package.

The new MAXIEM machines are offered within its 2000 Series, 3000 Series, and 4000 Series models, and all off them closely match the top-of-the-line OMAX JetMachining Centers by applying the same 50,000-psi direct-drive pump technology. The also share design features like the Intelli-MAX control software and Intelli-TRAX linear drive technology for high performance in the abrasive circumstances in which waterjet tables must operate.

Other shared features among the 2000, 3000 and 4000 product lines include floor- or tank-mounting options for more configuration possibilities; easy access USB ports and power/pause controller interfaces; high-pressure track plumbing for additional X-axis coverage; and DualBRIDGE System compatibility, which uses two Y-bridges for greater productivity.

All OMAX and MAXIEM designs are manufactured in the United States.
