NASCAR is observed by fans as an definitive test of man and machine. Needing a fast, high-precision cutting solution for short-run production and fast prototyping; Hendrick Motorsports, added an abrasive waterjet machine to their team. The Omax 55100 Jet Machining Centers not only met those demanding expectations, but also offered the flexibility to cut an assortment of materials. Intended to cut complex parts from flat stock ranging to 5 × 10 feet, the waterjet differentiates itself from laser machining with the capacity to easily cut a large variety of materials, including aluminum, copper, rubber and carbon fiber. The machine is equipped with Omax Tilt-A-Jet system, which automatically calculates and offsets the natural taper that comes from typical waterjet cutting heads. Hendrick Motorsports knew the waterjet would deliver added flexibility and versatility to ensure quick and improved productivity, but never imagined how much it would enhance their engineering and manufacturing processes.Read More

One area that has fascinated substantial attention is applying Waterjet to the production of parts in the "micro" range, that is, parts smaller than 300 microns. Ongoing efforts by Dr. Liu, senior scientist at Omax Corporation, in order to further the development of this process are supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research Program as well as Omax's own R&D funds. Thus, an added challenge is developing methods to feed abrasive particles in orders of magnitude finer than is presently feasible. Because the behavior of ultra-fine particles is not fully understood, achieving constant flow rates for steady and predictable cutting quality has been elusive. Despite these challenges, Dr. Liu feels he has made considerable progress in the development of micro-waterjet machining technology. Meanwhile, manufacturers must look closely at Waterjet and think creatively about opportunities it presents for making extremely small parts to high precision.Read More
