Typical Waterjet Users & Applications

OMAX abrasive waterjets not only have the power to revolutionise your machining process, they do also grant you the flexibility to service a variety of industries. From medical to energy to defence and everything in between, OMAX helps you define what’s possible in manufacturing.

Food Processing

Aerospace manufacturing is a high technology industry that produces aircraft, guided missiles, space vehicles, aircraft engines, propulsion units, and related parts. Most of their part production is geared towards government work. Some examples of aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) using OMAX waterjet technology include: custom control panels, structural components for special purpose aircraft, turbine blades, jet engines, aluminum skins, struts, brake components, nacelle components, and many other parts.

Job shops supporting architectural firms transform creative designs into functional artwork or installations. Many job shops in this industry use their OMAX to cut architectural trim, custom vinyl, stone, marble, signage, and other various materials. Waterjet cut materials end up in restaurants, retail space, commercial buildings, or even television production sets.

Many universities and technical colleges outfit their labs or R&D facilities with an OMAX system to offer their students the experience of waterjet technology. The OMAX JetMachining Center enables students to learn practical applications without a prerequisite in G-code programming. This advantage allows academics to devote more time in teaching their students core design and engineering skills for career enhancement. With an OMAX as a shop tool, students develop innovative solutions with waterjet capabilities in mind.

This sector includes all of the industries involved in the production and sale of energy, including fuel extraction, manufacturing, refining and distribution. Companies that provide energy products, including crude oil, natural gas, refined petroleum, wind turbine blades, and heat exchangers are common end users of an OMAX JetMachining Center. High-volume fabrication shops benefit from utilising abrasive waterjet technology since they can produce quality parts without heat-affected zones, usually an industry requirement.

Food processing equipment and material handling manufacturers construct mechanical methods and techniques to transform raw ingredients into food or medicine for human consumption according to industry standards. OMAX is used in areas of manufacturing components (primarily from stainless steel and plastic) for food processing lines, guards, enclosures, food handling and packaging equipment, and custom pharmaceutical processing equipment.

OMAX Corporation provides the government with the best technology solutions in precision abrasive waterjet systems. Job shops, OEMs, fabricators, defence contractors, educational institutions, and Fortune 500 companies have chosen OMAX to meet their abrasive waterjet machining needs. Many military sections, federal government offices, and other US departments own OMAX machines to produce customised components or tools for maintaining legacy equipment.

Many areas of the medical industry operate an OMAX to develop items such as medical devices for patients, diagnosis, therapy, surgery, and prosthetics. Examples of OMAX application in this industry include: blanking out surgical instruments from special steel alloys; cutting artificial limb components from carbon fiber composites; manufacturing carbon braces and orthopedic appliances, and other products.

This field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles, and operations. Modes of transportation can include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline, and space. Some of our OMAX customers produce automotive components for race cars, motorcycles, custom-made ambulances, and commercial trucks. We also have job shops and fabricators who produce various customised components with their OMAX for helicopters, airplanes, and autonomous underwater vehicles. After adding OMAX technology to their shop, these businesses were able to eliminate the costly outsourcing of cutting projects.
