Future of Waterjet

The Future of OMAX and Waterjetting

Change is on the Horizon
... and OMAX is making it happen

While many tend to describe Industry 4.0 as the future of manufacturing, in reality, it has already arrived. OMAX has integrated Industry 4.0 solutions into our own production operations. Now that manufacturing has become almost entirely digitized and interconnected as part of what we might call "Industry 3.0," shops and their suppliers have begun to leverage digital data in new ways, from predictive maintenance powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to scalable solutions designed to power the next generation of data analysis.

3D Cutting Preview

Our 3D cutting preview will allow for further design and machine-use review then ever before. Run simulations of your cut even before loading your material to ensure you are getting the best out of your waterjet. Scout potential cutting hazards, drafting errors, or unintentional lag.

Predictive Maintenance

OMAX's upgraded IntelliVISOR will be set up for more advanced monitoring and analytics. Using historical data, you’ll be able to program pump maintenance cycle reminders, mixing tube checks, and optimal usage. The upgraded IntelliVISOR interface will be available on your control console as well as remotely, making it possible for operators to monitor their OMAX waterjet from anywhere.

Predictive Maintenance

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is the digital innovation of manufacturing and value creation processes. The advance in manufacturing includes the transfer of autonomy and autonomous decisions to cyber-physical systems and devices, leveraging information systems.

Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality

A technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.

Interconnected machines, computers, and other devices networked together with automated industrial applications.

Cyber Security
Cyber Security

The protection of networks from information disclosure, theft of or damage to their hardware, software, or electronic data.

Generative Design
Generative Design

When engineers input performance objectives into specific software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, etc., then the software explores the permutations and generates design variations that meet user requirements.

Robotics Integration

In the future, OMAX waterjets will have communication capabilities that command external devices. Robotic arms will be controlled centrally to load and unload parts as needed. Optical sensors will have the ability to locate and realign your waterjet nozzle accordingly. Automated feed systems could keep your waterjet loaded with garnet for days without additional attention.
