Shaping the Future


JetMachining Centers

Fast, Accurate Parts Production Starts Here



Whether your focus is rapid prototype development or full-scale parts production, we offer the industry's most advanced and versatile selection of abrasive waterjet systems through our OMAX® and MAXIEM® product lines. More importantly, when you purchase one of our JetMachining® Centers, you can efficiently cut most any material and thickness with unmatched speed and accuracy.


Our Intelli-MAX® Software Suite leads the waterjet industry in advanced motion control software. Through proprietary technology, the software makes it easy for almost anyone to create precision parts faster and at a lower cost by automatically optimizing tool paths. Continuous software updates meet the diverse and changing needs of our customers across all manufacuting industry segments.


Our JetMachining Centers are the most efficient on the market thanks to our unique direct drive pump technology. Available in a variety of horsepower options, our pumps provide double the operating life of other designs, as well as provide faster part processing, lower operating costs and easier maintenance. In fact, direct drive pumps deliver more horsepower to the cutting nozzle, where it matters most, while using less electricity than intensifier designs. 


Not only do we produce the world’s most advanced abrasive waterjet technology, our commitment to training, applications development and spare part services helps our customers maximize their waterjet machine investment, improve their manufacturing processes and grow their businesses. Plus, with a presence in more than 70 nations, our global support network of distributor partners and country-specific OMAX and MAXIEM technical support teams put our unrivaled service and support in close proximity to every customer.
