OMAX 5555 JetMachining Center

The fast, efficient, and precise 5555 JetMachining® Center provides top performance in waterjet machining of complex parts from many materials. From simple metals to complex composites, the 4' 7" square cutting area of the proven 5555 is ideal for rapid prototyping and just-in-time manufacturing of small to medium-sized parts. With simple fixturing and easy access to the cutting table, setup times are significantly reduced, increasing productivity and 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 OMAX 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
  • Easy operator access to the work area
  • High efficiency Generation 4 EnduroMAX® pump systems available in 30, 40, or 50 hp with operating efficiencies up to 85%
  • Robust and accurate design for tight tolerance cutting and reliable operation
  • 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
  • Environmentally “green” system with quiet and clean operation with low electrical consumption
  • Rapid Water Level Control for quiet and clean submerged cutting
  • Highly robust and reliable pump design capable of over 1000 hours between maintenance
  • Shipped as a completely pre-assembled and factory-tested system
