Omax Highlights Possibilities of Waterjet Technology at Fabtech 2016


Omax Corporation will provide a comprehensive and customized machining experience through real-world cutting demonstrations, live applications assistance, and interactive educational opportunities at the upcoming Fabtech 2016 show on November 16-18, in Las Vegas. In Booth #C27047, Omax will feature the robust bridge-style Omax 80X, equipped with Tilt-A-Jet® and rotary axis, along with the accurate, cost-effective Maxiem® 1530 with an A-Jet®. Powered by Omax’s user-friendly Intelli-Max® Software Suite, both machines will tackle a variety of real-world cutting challenges in a wide range of materials.

Incredibly versatile, Omax abrasive waterjets can cut complex parts out of nearly any material, including metal, plastic, glass, ceramics, stone, and composites. The easy-to-use Intelli-Max software supports more than 90 different part file formats, including standard 2D DXF files and advanced 3D shapes. Unlike other material removal processes, waterjet systems can also cut extremely hard, reflective, and nonconductive materials, making it a highly efficient and productive alternative.

“We want Fabtech visitors to experience first-hand how the speed, performance, and versatility of abrasive waterjet technology can meet their application challenges regardless of the industries they serve,” said Stephen Bruner, vice president of marketing for Omax. “Waterjet technology creates a wealth of opportunity for shops looking to grow, and we’re excited to showcase the possibilities.”

As part of the immersive booth experience, live cutting demonstrations will highlight the unmatched precision, taper-free cutting, and 3D cutting capabilities of the company’s Tilt-A-Jet and A-Jet technologies as well as the ease of use of waterjet machining provided by minimal fixturing requirements, no tool change-outs, and simple software programming. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try out Omax’s Intelli-Max software to see first-hand how the software dramatically increases the speed and ease of part programming.

Also in the booth, application specialists and certified Omax technicians will be on-hand to address questions about cutting speeds, material thicknesses, cycle times, tolerances, and maintenance best practices.
