Earlier this year, we asked the public to pick a new name for our new waterjet, an Omax Maxiem 1530. The winning name, which beat out 15 other contestants in the tournament, is "Wetty McCutterface", suggested by Lilith Specht. Congratulations to Lilith, who wins $150 in custom parts from Big Blue Saw.

Says Lilith:

What was originally a spin on a meme name actually turned out to be liked! It is surprising, though shout outs to the other awesome names. It feels awesome to win the honor of naming the new family member of a company as fantastic as Big Blue Saw! Stay wet and cut on!

“Big Blue Saw has been selling waterjet cutting services since the company began in 2005,” explained Simon Arthur, President and Founder of Big Blue Saw. “I had first learned about the flexibility and utility of waterjet cutting as a competitor at BattleBots, where the most advanced teams used waterjet-cut parts on their combat robots. While Big Blue Saw originally outsourced all waterjet cutting, we eventually brought that operation in-house for the best part quality and customer service.”

Earlier this year, we asked our social media followers to guess what was coming in the empty space in our shop. Well here it is: a brand new Omax Maxiem 1530 waterjet cutting machine! We brought this machine into our shop to help reduce the time it takes to ship the parts to you, our customers. Its new features, like the terrain follower, nicely complement our existing waterjet cutting capabilities.

Now we need your help. We need a name for this machine. Should we give it a friendly name like "Cuddles" or "Bambi"? Or maybe something more agressive like "Samson" or "Beast"? Let us know your thoughts. Head over to this Facebook post and leave your suggestion in the comments. One lucky person will win $150 in free waterjet cut parts!

I want to introduce you to the newest member of the Big Blue Saw Custom Part Army: Ghost Raptor! Ghost Raptor will compete in BattleBots 2020, this time featuring a rotating aluminum alloy "hammer" which has been custom waterjet cut by Big Blue Saw!

The team is captained by long time veteran Chuck Pitzer and is returning better than ever after sitting out the last couple years.

Here's what we expect the new Ghost Raptor to look like when finished:
