OMAX® to Showcase Variety of Abrasive Waterjet Innovations at IMTS 2010

Kent, Washington - OMAX Corporation will be demonstrating a broad spectrum of its abrasive waterjet innovations at IMTS 2010. The company's booth, #N-6228, will contain three abrasive waterjet machining centers equipped with a variety of unique accessories designed to provide manufacturers with significant cost and time savings. IMTS 2010 will take place on September 13 - 18 at the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Designed with an X-Y cutting travel of 165 inches x 80 inches (4,191 mm x 2032 mm), the 80X JetMachining® Center excels at large scale precision machining of larger or multiple parts out of a variety of materials, including metal, composites and stone. OMAX will demonstrate the 80X with its new DualBRIDGE System, a configuration option that allows the inclusion of a second Y-bridge to boost efficiency and flexibility. Each Y-bridge is equipped with a touch screen monitor, allowing easier access to the PC-based controllers. One of the machine's cutting heads will showcase the A-Jet(TM), a multi-axis cutting head that cuts accurate beveled edges at angles determined by the machine operator or part program. The other cutting head will contain OMAX's Tilt-A-Jet® system, which automatically calculates and offsets the natural taper that results from the abrasivejet to achieve virtually zero taper. The 80X machine will also incorporate new fixturing to hold materials in place for streamlined operation.

The 80X on display will feature the OMAX DualPUMP Package, a fully integrated system that utilizes two P4055V pumps to produce unprecedented cutting speed and power and a significant reduction in machining time compared to previous cutting models. In this DualPUMP demonstration, each P4055V pump will be independently connected to the A-Jet cutting head and the Tilt-A-Jet cutting head.

Also on display will be the MAXIEM 2040 JetCutting Center, a newly released waterjet that integrates proven technologies in a cost-efficient package to provide users with an affordable, highly productive fabricating and metalcutting solution. The MAXIEM 2040 will be featured 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. With an X-Y cutting travel of 160 inches x 79 inches (4,064 mm x 2,006 mm) and a maximum table load of 125 lbs/sq ft (600 kg/m2), the machine productively cuts a wide variety of materials without creating heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses.

OMAX's booth will also contain the MAXIEM 0707 JetCutting Center, an ideal entry-level solution for companies that want to reap the benefits of abrasive waterjet technology. With an X-Y cutting travel of 30 inches x 30 inches (762 mm x 762 mm) and maximum table load of 125 lbs/sq ft (600 kg/m2), the machine is ideal for prototyping or research and development environments. The machine's low entry-level price of just $67,000 allows for substantial return on investment.

Machines in the MAXIEM line are ideal for fabrication shops, metal service centers, trade schools, job shops, architectural, sign, stone and gasket shops.
