OMAX® Showcases New MAXIEM(TM) Abrasive Waterjet at WESTEC

New brand of high performance, low cost machines made exclusively in the US

Kent, Washington, January 28, 2010 - OMAX Corporation will demonstrate the features and benefits of the newly released MAXIEM 1515, 80X JetMachining® Center and A-Jet articulated cutting head at WESTEC 2010. The industry leading abrasive waterjets will be on display in booth 1901 from March 23 - 25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA.

Available at an entry-level price of $70,000, the MAXIEM 1515 integrates proven technologies in a cost-efficient package to provide users with an affordable, highly productive fabricating and metalcutting solution. OMAX will demonstrate the abrasive waterjet with a 30 hp high-pressure direct drive 50,000-psi pump, and Intelli-MAX® Basic, a control containing the core functionality of OMAX's critically acclaimed software. The machine will also feature the patent pending X and Y-axis traction drive system, which is designed to handle an abrasive environment, as well as an Abrasive Nozzle Assembly and a durable abrasive feed system.

Additionally, the performance tool's compact design makes it ideal for fabrication shops, metal service centers, trade schools, job shops, architectural, sign, stone and gasket shops. With a table size of 92 inches x 69 inches (2,337 mm x 1,752 mm) and a maximum table load of 125 pounds/square feet, (600 kg/square meter) the abrasive waterjet productively cuts a wide variety of materials without creating heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses. By cutting parts directly from the plate, the MAXIEM 1515 also dramatically reduces setup time and material usage.
