OMAX JETMACHINING CENTER / Alexis utilizes one of the fastest and most precise abrasive waterjet cutting methods in the industry with our Omax 50,000 PSI JetMachining Center. Waterjet machining is a computerized technology used to cut virtually any material into any complex two-dimensional shape which does not result in tool path heating, distortion, or residual stress in the cut material. Computerized motion control provides accurate and reproducible results efficiently throughout a wide range of materials and thicknesses while generating a smooth edge and finish.
3/16″ ALUMINUM OR STAINLESS STEEL BODIES / Alexis designs our bodies and subframes utilizing 3D solid modeling to ensure each apparatus is ready to answer the call every time. Finite element analysis is key to ensuring our body is designed to withstand the rigorous conditions our customers are required to respond under. Each body utilizes a subframe that is manufactured of galvanized steel, stainless steel, or aluminum depending on the mission of the unit.
Our heavy duty 3/16” aluminum and 304 #4 stainless steel Response One bodies are designed to fill the role of that versatile unit in your fleet with quick access to your equipment through roll up style doors or hemmed pan style doors. These units are ready to provide a quick response with the equipment you need to complete your job safely and successfully every time.
Service and maintenance is streamlined with heat resistant, color, function, and number coded wiring as well as printed circuit boards and automatic reset circuit breakers. The connections are made through a Duetsch connector, allowing for the best possible protection against the elements. Standard and multiplex systems are available to meet each customer’s 12 volt electrical requirements.
Our apparatus bodies are painted on the Alexis premises using PPG high-gloss finish coatings. Two coats of paint and three coats of primer for ultimate durability and quality. The compartments can be finished in either a natural Aluminum or Zolatone coating. Our trucks are prepped, the paint color of your choice is mixed, and the paint is applied to produce the finished, painted product.
