OMAX® Corporation Spotlights Speed, Accuracy of Waterjet Technology at AOG

Attendees to experience highly versatile MAXIEM® 1530 JetMachining® Center

KENT, Wash. – For the first time at the Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference (AOG) on March 11-13, 2015 in Perth, OMAX Corporation will showcase the many benefits of advanced abrasive waterjet technology. The company and its exclusive Australian distributor, Headland Machinery will demonstrate the speed, accuracy and versatility of the MAXIEM 1530 JetMachining Center by cutting a variety of materials and thicknesses in stand #S2 in the USA Pavilion at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre.

The all-new 1530 represents the company’s next generation line of MAXIEM machines designed and built in the United States. It has an X-Y cutting travel of 3.061 m x 1.575 m (10' x 5'2") and can support material loads up to 1,465 kg/square meter (300 lbs./square feet). The MAXIEM line was introduced in 2009 and has proven its ability to meet customer demands for cost-efficient, industry-leading waterjet cutting technology.

MAXIEM machines are equipped with OMAX’s industry leading Intelli-TRAX™ linear drive system that utilizes brushless servo motors, integrated servo drives and high precision linear encoders that provide constant and continuous feedback on the actual position of the cutting head. In addition to increased part cutting accuracy, the advanced drive system delivers much faster and smoother motion.

MAXIEM machines build on OMAX’s more than 20 years of direct-drive pump technology with the 50,000-psi pump that includes Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) technology that regulates the electricity input to the motor to reduce overall energy costs. The pumps deliver high nozzle horsepower, or JetPower™ for more cutting power per kilowatt than intensifier-type pumps, which increases operating efficiencies. The pumps are available in 20-, 30- and 40-horsepower versions for MAXIEM machines, with a DualPUMP package also available that boosts the horsepower to 80.

The new all-in-one Windows® 8 controllers on the MAXIEM machines come pre-loaded with the powerful OMAX Intelli-MAX® Software Suite and feature large 23-inch display screens that provide easy viewing of part files and tool paths. The Intelli-MAX software makes it easy to generate complex geometries and produce quality parts from virtually any type of material. The software is extremely user friendly for both the novice operator and the skilled machinist. The software also features Intelli-VISOR®, OMAX’s system monitoring for predictive machine maintenance capability.

Through its distribution partners, OMAX has expanded its global reach and increased the availability of its high-speed, precision-engineered technology. With four offices throughout Australia, Headland Machinery serves customers with a wide range of services and products, including a complete stock of original spare parts for all OMAX JetMachining and MAXIEM JetCutting Centers.
