What Owners Say

  • Thanks for being a really good company to work with!

    Frank Connolly of Kuest Corp
  • Instead of three to four hours to take a specimen to rough finish with a saw, we can accomplish the same process in 45 minutes on the MAXIEM.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • The dining table was a very exciting project which could not have been done without the OMAX.

    Peter of Carapace Armor Technology
  • Because of the OMAX waterjet machine and the ease-of-use with the software, it allows us to nest parts in materials and get more pieces per sheet.

    Shane of TruPart Manufacturing Inc.
  • The technicians have been available, courteous, well trained and very helpful.
