Serial Number : Rotary Axis Series

OMAX Rotary Axis

The Rotary Axis is a robust, water resistant submersible rotary head that allows the abrasive waterjet to cut 6-axis* paths to create complex 3D shapes in tube, pipe, and bar stock. Constant rotational control allows for continuous cutting around a shape. Advanced software features in the Intelli-MAX Software Suite grant the ability to cut complex shapes and angles when used in conjunction with the A-Jet® articulated cutting head. Precision indexed rotations offer accurate cutting of multi-faceted shapes and other geometric-shaped materials. The Rotary Axis can be mounted on any OMAX JetMachining® Center, significantly expanding the cutting capabilities.
  • Fully submersible rotary head
  • Multiple mounting features on output shaft including external and internal threads, flanges, and locating shoulders
  • Powered by OMAX common table control
  • Flexible positioning of the mounting and supports
  • Easy maintenance with external grease fittings
  • Built-in water drip sensor, warning lights, and shutdown
  • Incremental or coordinated continuous rotation
  • Rapid height adjustment wheel on High Torque Rotary Axis
  • Provides the ability for submerged cutting, leading to a cleaner and quieter process
  • Robust standard ACME and metric threads allow customers to adapt custom work holding fixtures
  • Can be relocated at various positions of the table, permitting sheet cutting and rotary cutting without removing the rotary head
  • Combines precision of abrasive waterjet and rotary head technologies
  • Opens up more design capabilities
  • No heat-affected zones when cutting metal materials

When used with the A-Jet, fishmouth intersections,
saddle cuts, and countersunk holes can be cut along
the circumference of pipes.

The Rotary Axis can handle small and large diameter
tube and pipe with high precision, as well as nonmetal

Programming for Rotary Axis cutting is simple, with
advanced tools built into the Intelli-MAX Software
