The OMAX 55100 JetMachining Center is OMAX’s (Kent, WA) largest cantilever-style machine with a completely sealed and protected ball screw drive system. The OMAX 55100 is a robust and reliable workhorse for shops using larger stock and comes standard with an OMAX MAXJET 5i Nozzle and a Bulk Abrasive Delivery System.
The MAXJET 5i Nozzle is made with a diamond orifice and carbide disc which are permanently fixed inside the mixing chamber and nozzle body to ensure precise internal component alignment. The nozzle is warranted to last 500 hours and is available in orifice sizes from 0.010 to 0.022 inches. The one-piece integrated nozzle design eliminates the need for rebuilding the nozzle assembly. Operators simply replace the whole assembly when needed.
The Bulk Abrasive Delivery System uses compressed air to automatically transport garnet from the bulk abrasive hopper to the 25-pound hopper located on the OMAX machine. The OMAX 55100 comes standard with the 600-pound hopper and features a tank which can be pressurized to 125 psi (0.86 MPa) and located up to 20 feet away from the machine.
The OMAX 55100 has a cutting speed of 180 in/min (4,572 mm/min) and a repeatability and linear positional accuracy of plus or minus 0.0010 inches (0.0254 mm). The system features OMAX’s IntelliMAX software and IntelliVISOR SE system for monitoring and predictive maintenance. The IntelliCAM software can generate either 2D or 3D tool paths from 3D models. The OMAX 55100 includes scissor-style hard plumbing for an additional layer of safety by using contained high-pressure components, and the standard rapid water level control produces quieter submerged cutting, completing most work under 80 dBA.
