OMAX® Showcases MAXIEM(TM) Abrasive Waterjet Line at SOUTH-TEC

Kent, Washington, August 4, 2009 - OMAX Corporation will demonstrate the capabilities of the MAXIEM 1515 at SOUTH-TEC 2009. Like all models in the new MAXIEM line of abrasive waterjet machines, the MAXIEM 1515 integrates proven technologies in a cost-efficient package to provide users with an affordable, highly productive metalcutting solution. OMAX will be located in booth 14076 from October 6 - 8 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The MAXIEM 1515 features a compact design and is 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, including metal, plastic, glass, ceramics, stone and composites 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.

OMAX will demonstrate the MAXIEM 1515 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.
