Several universities have elected to add ProtoMAX to their engineering, material sciences, robotics, and arts programs. With a clamshell cover and submerged cutting, the ProtoMAX is a safe and quiet (approx. 76 dB) iteration of a light industrial machine, according to OMAX. It delivers 30,000 psi cutting power with a 5-hp pump and cuts virtually any material under 1 in. thick with a 12 in. by 12 in. cutting area. The system utilizes a 230-240 VAC, single phase outlet and does not require any hardwiring. The pump and cutting table are on casters. Like other waterjets, the ProtoMAX cuts with no heat-affected zone and no change to the material properties.
