OMAX uses government grant
to develop micromachining
OMAX® Corp., Kent, Wash., a manufacturer of computer-controlled abrasive
waterjet systems, has developed what
it says is the most precise micromachining abrasive waterjet available
with the assistance of a Small Business
Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from
the U.S. National Science Foundation
The NSF SBIR program seeks to
catalyze private sector commercialization of technological innovations.
The funding helped accelerate the
manufacturer’s efforts in the development of the MicroMAX® JetMachining®
center, which can cut extremely small
parts from titanium carbon fiber, stainless steel, graphite, glass, copper, and
many other materials with no change
to the material integrity and a positioning accuracy of 15 microns.
Earlier in 2017, the company received
the Tibbetts Award from the U.S. Small
Business Administration (SBA) for its
outstanding technological innovation
in the area of micro abrasive waterjet
