11 October 2019

TCI Precision Metals recently announced the installation of the new OMAX 80X waterjet machining center. The new machine is faster and more accurate compared to any abrasive jet waterjet in the industry, which will help TCI Precision Metals shorten customer lead times, provide greater cutting efficiency, and reduce prices for the waterjet cutting services.

OMAX waterjet machining centers are recognized as being highly accurate, flexible, and efficient. With its Tilt-A-Jet cutting head technology, the model 80X produces high precision, finished edge cuts that are square, with no edge tapper, which is a problem with many other waterjet matching centers. With a cutting Travel of 13′4″ × 6′8″, Z-Axis Travel 8″, and overall table size of 15′0″ × 7′5″, the 80X is very versatile.

TCI Precision Metals is now capable of waterjet cutting a wide range of materials and thicknesses, from metals and composites to glass and plastics. As a machine-ready metals distributor with over 500,000 lbs of material in stock, including several grades of aluminum and stainless steel sheet and plate stock, as well as other alloys, TCI Precision Metals can deliver quick turnaround, coast-to-coast.
