New abrasive waterjet cutting machine
- Published: May 25, 2017
OMAX has introdced the GlobalMAX 1530 abrasive waterjet, a "value-priced abrasive waterjet" according to the company.
The new GlobalMAX line is available exclusively through international distribution and incorporates two and a half decades of waterjet industry research and development.
Like all OMAX waterjet systems, the pump, table and software in the GlobalMAX machines are designed, manufactured and tested as complete units at the OMAX headquarters in the USA.
“The GlobalMAX product line was created to extend our waterjet engineering and manufacturing technology base to more customers,” says Stephen Bruner, vice president of marketing at OMAX Corporation. “The product line features our proven direct drive pump technology, easy-to-use software, and innovative drive technology. We build waterjet systems that help our customers make money in the short and long term and this product line is no exception. With GlobalMAX, OMAX aims to redefine value-oriented waterjets.”
OMAX waterjets are easy to operate. The Intelli-MAX control software was engineered specifically for use with abrasive waterjets and no special machine code knowledge is required to use it. A person unfamiliar with CNC machine operation can learn to cut parts on an OMAX waterjet in just a few hours. Online training for machine operation and maintenance is provided free, so customers can access training information whenever they need it and at their own pace.
In addition to being easy to use, Intelli-MAX software is compatible with more than 90 different file formats, including all major CAD program file types, plus graphics file formats such as .jpg, .gif, and .png files. This means almost any 2D or 3D part file can be imported directly into an OMAX waterjet controller and turned into a real part.
