August 2013 - Through significant investments in research and development, OMAX Corporation has made great strides in micro-abrasive waterjet technology, targeting manufacturers that produce parts or part features smaller than 300 microns.
Ideal for the medical industry, the high precision 7/15 Mini MAXJET5i nozzle is one example of how OMAX is at the forefront of micro-abrasive waterjet technology. The nozzle accurately cuts delicate, complex patterns in parts made from virtually any type of material, such as the machining of a titanium-based orthopedic surgical implant for human bone repair. The 7/15 Mini MAXJET5 features a 0.007” orifice and 0.015” mixing tube combination, forming an extremely fine jet stream that can produce a kerf as small as 0.015”.
Overall, OMAX Corporation’s abrasive waterjet technology provides a flexible, cost-effective and beneficial alternative to conventional machining operations. It enables manufacturers across all industry segments to accomplish quick turnaround of accurate parts without the hassle of tool
changes or complex fixturing, as well as achieve smooth surface finishes without the need for secondary machining.
The company will spotlight some of its recent micromachining achievements in booth 1509 at MD&M Chicago, taking place September, 11-12 at the McCormick Place.
