What Owners Say

  • It also gives us an advantage from a throughput perspective because we're able to provide near-net-shape specimens to other departments for the next steps in that material's certification procedure.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • In the morning, we can go through and cut an entire product out and have a prototype put together because we can do everything in-house and have the accuracy of the waterjet.

    Joel of Jacyl Technology
  • We realized how much money we saved if we kept most of our cutting work in-house instead of outsourcing.

    Mr. Makis of Custom Precision Technologies
  • We like having a waterjet as opposed to plasma or laser because it's more diverse.

    Tim Trotter, President of Troco Custom Fabricators
  • We can cut parts right to size with our OMAX machines. The machines' Tilt-A-Jet accessory, precision table motion and easy-to-use controls are what make that possible.

    Jack of Jack's Machine Co.
  • OMAX solved the 'concept to finished part' problem. What used to take weeks now takes only hours...

    Peter of Asterisk Inc
  • With reverse engineering, we've essentially been able to take blueprints, sketches, and mylars, scan them and input them into the OMAX software. We're able to trace over the original blueprint and use the scaling features to cut a prototype.

    Scott of Waterjet West
  • I advertise having the Tilt-A-Jet for cutting tight tolerance; however, when quoting a specific project I can use it as my secret weapon to meet my customer's accuracy guidelines. This allows me to produce taper free parts.

    Ed Wenz of MarZee Waterjet Services
  • The dining table was a very exciting project which could not have been done without the OMAX.

    Peter of Carapace Armor Technology
  • Waterjet cutting technology has greatly increased our manufacturing capacity and given us the ability to cut virtually any metal, glass, plastic and composites. Anyone considering new equipment for cutting in manufacturing should explore waterjet.

    Tom Bezaire of CenterLine (Windsor) Ltd.
  • 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.
  • 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 OMAX machine made it possible for us to survive during this very difficult economic period.

    Torres of Amaida Machine Shop, LLC
  • The waterjet's cold cutting process is cleaner; we don't have to worry about modifying the chemistry of our specimens or intro­ducing heat.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • We were losing too much time with sec­ondary operations. In looking for a solution we had to carefully consider our equipment choices to avoid processing that might create heat-affected zones in the specimen or change its properties. The MAXIEM 1515 was modestly priced but provided a lot of capability

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • The waterjet gives our employees the opportunity to learn new skills and, because we can set it up for automated cutting to run unat­tended, it frees up our employees to focus on other mission essential tasks.

    Brandon McVaugh of Laboratory Testing Inc.
  • The motion control that OMAX has is superior to other machines that are out there. The things my customers comment on the most is the quietness of the machine and its accuracy and repeatability.

    Ted of Hydrocut Waterjet
  • We came to the realization that waterjet was a critical tool for efficient prototyping for several reasons. It's faster, easier to set up and operate and handles more materials than traditional machine tools.

    Dr. Coope of British Columbia Cancer Agency’s Genome Science Centre
