Compact Abrasive Waterjet


The ProtoMAX® can cut through nearly any material including aluminum, titanium, stone, carbon fiber, and G10 composite. Compact machine footprint combined with its comprehensive versatility makes the ProtoMAX an ideal abrasive waterjet for prototyping, educational applications, or as a complement to a larger machine shop.

The pump and cutting table are on casters for easy relocation. Work material is submerged under water for quiet cutting that won’t disrupt your work space.
