OMAX 55100 JetMachining Center

With over a decade in operation, the OMAX 55100 JetMachining® Center is the industry standard workhorse for high speed precision machining. From prototyping to full scale manufacturing, the 55100 can cut materials up to 4’ x 8’ quickly and efficiently. The simple programming takes DXF or CAD drawings and quickly creates cutting paths, making the 55100 ideal for short-run part production and just-in-time manufacturing. From small job shops to large production facilities, the 55100 JetMachining Center reduces cutting times and increases profitability.

  • Fastest cutting speeds and best precision compared to any abrasivejet in the industry and is backed by our exclusive IntelliMAX® Software with real world cutting data
  • Programmable Motorized Z-Axis with a precision MAXJET® 5i Nozzle Assembly can boost cutting productivity and process efficiency
  • Tilt-A-Jet® taper compensating abrasivejet cutting head (available as an option)
  • Precision X-Y Axis rigidly mounted to the cutting table
  • Pre-loaded linear bearings and precision ball screws
  • Low maintenance, high reliability scissor-style hard plumbing
  • Drive system sealed against water, dirt, and grit
  • High efficiency Generation 4 EnduroMAX® pump systems available in 30, 40, or 50 hp with operating efficiencies up to 85%
  • Rapid Water Level Control for quiet and clean submerged cutting
  • Bulk Abrasive Delivery System transports garnet from the assembly’s large hopper into the Zero Downtime Hopper located on the Z-Axis
  • Optional Variable Speed Solids Removal System (VS-SRS) designed for tough industrial use increases uptime through automated solids removal
  • Machines a wide range of materials and thicknesses, from metals and composites to glass and plastics
  • Does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses
  • No tool changes and minimal fixturing reduces setup by 50% or more
  • No additional water required for pump cooling
  • Small, efficient footprint for minimal floorspace utilization
  • Leaves behind a satin-smooth edge, reducing secondary operations
  • No noxious gases, liquid and oils used in, or caused by, the machining process
  • EnduroMAX pump technology delivers the highest nozzle horsepower in the industry for faster and more efficient cutting
  • Completes most work below 80 dBA at one meter for submerged cutting
  • Environmentally “green” system with quiet and clean operation with low electrical consumption
  • Highly robust and reliable pump design capable of over 1000 hours between maintenance
  • Shipped as a completely pre-assembled and factory-tested system
