OMAX® Corporation Debuts Intelli-VISOR(TM) System Monitoring Package at IMTS 2012
Press release date: October 2, 2012
New advanced system easily increases productivity of all OMAX JetMachining® Centers
Kent, Washington, – OMAX Corporation unveiled its new Intelli-VISOR System Monitoring Package at IMTS 2012, demonstrating to show attendees how users can now oversee the status and performance of an OMAX abrasive waterjet throughout the entire cutting process. Intelli-VISOR works to increase the efficiency and uptime of any OMAX JetMachining Center by connecting operation controls with machine maintenance.
As a function of OMAX’s new Intelli-MAX® 18 control software, Intelli-VISOR utilizes an industry-standard Modbus® communications protocol and features a streamlined software interface and robust machine sensor network to capture and share real-time data from different components across the OMAX JetMachining Center. As a result, operators can effectively monitor and analyze important machining parameters, including cutting activity, pump pressure and abrasive levels, as well as keep track of machine hours and maintenance schedules.
Through its custom-programmed parameters, or Modules, Intelli-VISOR enables the operator to configure exactly what aspect of the machine is to be monitored and the action the machine is to initiate if an operation is about to fail or has failed, including pausing the machine to protect the cutting head and workpiece and administering an alert notification. Further adding to its high adaptability, Intelli-VISOR can alert the operator of an issue at the machine control screen, and with an Internet connection can distribute an alert notice to up to four people via email or SMS text messaging.
OMAX Corporation designs all of its accessories to be retrofitable to its existing machine models. However, in order to benefit from the Intelli-VISOR package, users must first upgrade to the latest Intelli-MAX 18 Software, which is free to existing OMAX customers. As with all of its machines and accessories, OMAX backs its new Intelli-MAX 18 Software and Intelli-VISOR System Monitoring Package with unparalleled customer support.
OMAX® Corporation designs and manufactures the world’s most advanced abrasive waterjet technology in a variety of table sizes and price points at its headquarters in Kent, Washington.
