Versatility of Waterjet Cutting Technology Showcased

OMAX Corporation will highlight how the latest advancements in abrasive waterjet cutting machine technology meet a variety of specific manufacturing and educational needs. The company will demonstrate these systems in its booth and in the Smartforce Student Summit.

Throughout the show, OMAX will demonstrate its new ProtoMAX personal abrasive waterjet system, a compact, self-installed cutting system suited for prototyping and relatively low-volume cutting of almost any material around 1" thick. The system brings all the versatility benefits of large abrasive waterjet cutters together in an economical package that is suitable for small job shops, engineering classrooms, makerspaces and personal use. It is also a useful addition for large shops and fabricators that need occasional waterjet capabilities to complement their other cutting systems.

Visitors to OMAX's booth will also experience live cutting demonstrations on the MAXIEM 1530 with A-Jet, MicroMAX and an OMAX 80X Series with Tilt-A-Jet. "All of these showcase the company's wide selection of sizes and specifications and will show how simple and fast it is to cut 3-D parts, component features smaller than 300 microns or taper-free parts from various material types and thicknesses without the need for any tool changes," said a company spokesperson.

OMAX software engineers, certified technicians and applications specialists will also be available in the booth for one-on-one discussions on programming with the OMAX Intelli-MAX Software Suite, special software features, cutting applications and maintenance best practices. Visitors will also learn about the training and support the company provides in-person, online and over the phone.

Another highlight at the show will be a presentation by OMAX machine shop supervisor Dan DeWaal, who will discuss how abrasive waterjet cutting fits into the overall manufacturing process as part of The IMTS Conference program on Monday, September 10 in room W192-A.
