Ultra-High Pressure Direct-Drive Waterjet-Cutting Pump

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Omax Corp., Kent, WA, has introduced a 100-hp direct-drive pump with EnduroMax technology, designed to increase efficiency, improve reliability and minimize operating costs by delivering more power at the waterjet-cutting nozzle, equal to 135-hp intensifier-pump designs. This power increase creates a more powerful abrasive stream for higher cutting speeds and productivity, and less wear and tear and maintenance. The pump provides a stable jet stream as much as eight times smoother than that from intensifier pumps, significantly reducing wear on high-pressure plumbing and fittings.

The 100-hp pump features a durable Inline-six design, an evolution of the Omax EnduroMax design that provides smooth cutting, high reliability and easy modular maintenance. Variable-frequency drive technology tailors power and water consumption to the application for powerful and precise cutting while providing seamless pressure control, all while eliminating inrush current and reducing maintenance.

I was very intrigued when I heard water jets could be used to cut through metal. That water most be going pretty fast the be able to slice through it like it ins't even there. With all that power you would thing the machine doing that would have to be massive, but that powerful water jet comes from a basically hand held machine like this. Thanks for the great post.

This is one of the best designs I've seen yet. The pressure is more powerful, but that doesn't sacrifice control or handling. There's a fine balance between the two, and a pressure pump that manages that is helpful for almost any situation.
