Waterjet Order - ECE Undergraduate Students

  • Please enter a number from 11111111 to 99999999.
  • Waterjet Information

    Designed and built alongside the revolutionary OMAX waterjets, The ProtoMAX is a compact, self-contained cutting system ideally suited for prototyping and low-volume cutting of almost any material approximately 1" thick. Bringing all the versatility benefits of large abrasive waterjet cutters together in a sleek and economic package, this machine is ideal for prototyping or as a complement to a larger machine shop.
  • Nesting (process)

    Nesting (process)

    Nesting refers to the method of organizing cutting patterns in order to minimize waste of raw materials. This technique is commonly used in the production of parts from flat sheet materials.

    Example 1: Simple rectangular nesting.

    Example 2: Improved Nesting with rotated parts.

    Example 3: Minimizing waste by mixing different parts.


    The minimum recommended gap between nested parts when using waterjet technology varies based on the material being cut and the machine. Waterjet High pressure can cause deformation. It is generally advisable to maintain a minimum gap of.125 inch between each component and.25 inch from the edges of the material to mitigate the risk of deformation.
  • COST

    Aluminium 1.6mm
    Cost * Min Cost $30: Custom Size Cut
    (10 by 10 inches)

    Note (1):  Cost is calculated using the total projection of the DXF in Letter size fractions.
    Eg: If the total Width and Lenght of your DXF submssion takes 2 Letter size you will get charge 2X Min cost of the material selected.
