Omax will showcase its 80X JetMachining Center with a Tilt-A-Jet cutting head. It is designed to accommodate large or multiple part jobs and is said to cut virtually any material with no heat-affected zone. The company says that the Tilt-A-Jet cutting head can create tight tolerance, taper-free parts, even from thick material. 

The company will demonstrate how its waterjets can produce parts with smooth edges that do not require secondary finishing operations without the use of heat.

Omax will also feature its Intelli-MAX Premium control software, which 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, enabling many 2D and 3D part files to be imported into the software.
