OMAX® Corporation to Demonstrate Abrasive Waterjet Versatility at MMTS

Attendees to see fast, accurate cutting performance of MAXIEM 1530 in various materials

KENT, Wash. – At the 2014 Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS), May 12-14 at Place Bonaventure, Montreal, Quebec, OMAX Corporation will showcase its versatile MAXIEM® 1530 abrasive waterjet machine paired with an A-Jet® 5-axis cutting head and highly efficient 40 hp direct drive pump in Spark & Co. booth 625.

The MAXIEM 1530 has an X-Y cutting travel of 0.26 meters by 5.2 meters (10 feet 2 inches by 5 feet 2 inches), making it well suited for fabrication shops and metal service centers. Through the company's Intelli-MAX® Software Suite and direct drive pump technology, the machine easily and cost-effectively cuts high-quality parts from virtually all materials, including metal, plastic glass, ceramics, stone and composites. Furthermore, the machine cuts parts directly from multiple materials with a single tool to reduce set-up time and material usage.

With the A-Jet® cutting head accessory, the MAXIEM 1530 produces precise angled cuts and bevels while automatically correcting for the taper normally found in an abrasive waterjet cut. The A-Jet adds two motion axes, enabling the nozzle to tilt over a range of 0 degrees to 60 degrees from the vertical position for 5-axis cutting. It can also easily cut countersunk holes and machine parts with complex geometries. With its additional axes of motion, the A-Jet allows production of beveled edges in preparation for welding operations.

OMAX Corporation offers the broadest range of table sizes, pumps, accessories and software on the market – all backed by an unbeatable support program. Moreover, the company's abrasive waterjet technology provides a flexible and beneficial alternative to conventional machining operations. In fact, with OMAX Corporation's waterjet technology, manufacturers can accomplish quick turnaround of accurate parts without the hassle of tool changes or complex fixturing as well as achieve smooth surface finishes without heat-affected zones or the need for secondary machining.
