OMAX® Corporation today announced the launch of their new GlobalMAX® 1508 and 2040 abrasive waterjets, extending the GlobalMAX line of reliable and practical machines capable of cutting virtually any material. The GlobalMAX 1508 offers a compact footprint and cutting area for rapid prototyping. The GlobalMAX 2040 can accomodate large sheets of material for cutting large parts or multiple smaller nested parts.
“The GlobalMAX 1508 and 2040 models were added to the GlobalMAX product line to provide more size options for customers seeking an essentially featured abrasive waterjet,” says Stephen Bruner, vice president of marketing at OMAX Corporation. “The GlobalMAX 1508 and 2040 products feature our proven direct drive pump technology, easy-to-use software, and innovative motion control technology.”
Both products will be produced in Kent, Washington, USA to ensure quality and component compatibility. International OMAX distrbutors are certified installers and servicers and are trained at OMAX headquarters.
The GlobalMAX 1508 and 2040 feature 0.8 x 1.5 meter and 4.0 x 2.0 meter cutting bed sizes, respectively. There are also two direct drive pump sizes available, 20HP and 30HP. Like all OMAX abrasive waterjets, the GlobalMAX can cut almost any material and a wide variety of material thicknesses without any heat-affected zone (HAZ). The machine does X/Y axis cutting with three degrees of freedom and has a number of compatible accessories, including a terrain follower, a pneumatic drill and bulk garnet feed hopper.
