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.
GALVANIZED BODY SUBFRAME / A fully-welded steel subframe supports our 3/16″ thick heavy duty aluminum body. Once the subframe is manufactured, it is hot-dip galvanized to provide the strongest body support system available to withstand the rigors of everyday use. Our underbody outrigger system provides total compartment support from the bottom up to withstand the load carrying requirements of today’s apparatus. A rubber body cushion is standard to provide flexibility and ensure dissimilar metals will be separated to protect against damage caused by electrolysis.
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.
