Personal Waterjet Cutter Goes Wherever You Want to Work

Featuring application-specific control software that comes preinstalled on a laptop and a small footprint that fits through most standard doorways, the ProtoMAX from OMAX is easy to set up and start using.

Touted as the first high-performance personal waterjet cutter, OMAX’s compact ProtoMAX arrives in one package with everything you need to start cutting and replacement parts to minimize downtime.

With its clamshell cover and quiet operation (approx. 76 dB), the ProtoMAX from OMAX Corp. (Kent, WA) is a safe and quiet addition to an advanced manufacturing curriculum. Several universities have incorporated the waterjet cutter into engineering and robotics programs to give students hands-on experience with the technology.

Featuring a 5 hp pump that produces 30,000 psi of power, the compact ProtoMAX cuts virtually any material less than 1 inch thick in a 12-inch-by-12-inch cutting area. The system uses a 230-240 VAC, single-phase outlet and doesn’t require any hardwiring. Work material is submerged under water for clean, quiet cutting that won’t disrupt a shared workspace. The machine cuts with no heat-affected zone and no change to a material’s properties.

The pump and cutting table are on casters for easy relocation.

Intelli-MAX Proto CAD software features waterjet-specific tools, such as cut quality and lead-in/lead-out, that help users create the right part the first time.
