About OMAX Abrasive WaterJet Systems


OMAX Corporation is the leading provider of precision-engineered, computer-controlled, multi-axis (X-Y) abrasive jet systems for use in the manufacturing environment. Established in 1993, OMAX’s objective was to harness state-of-the-art technologies to make high-pressure abrasive jet machining practical, affordable, and easy to use. OMAX revolutionized the industry by creating the OMAX Jet Machining Center, the first truly affordable system to offer abrasive jet capabilities with consistent, precision results.


OMAX founders, Dr. John Cheung and Dr. John Olsen, developed and combined new motion control technology and proprietary software to engineer an abrasive waterjet that meets the needs of today's manufacturers. Over the years, OMAX has brought together the leading innovators and experts in abrasive waterjet technology, fostering an environment that promotes teamwork and a shared dedication to excellence. OMAX developed a patented easy-to-use "Compute First-Move Later" conversational programming system that is built directly into the controls of our abrasive waterjets. The capabilities of OMAX machines constantly evolve to meet the diverse and changing needs of today’s manufacturers.

OMAX MAXIEM Waterjet Overview

Designed for a wide range of machining needs, the MAXIEM 1530 sets a higher standard for precision abrasive waterjet machining. The rigid tank design is scaled to handle common plate sizes with room to spare. The advanced linear motion system uses, digital linear encoders to provide instant micron-level cutting head position feedback to the Windows® 8 controller to assure accurate part production. Equipped with a diamond-integrated MAXJET 5i nozzle, the 1530 can cut virtually any material quickly and efficiently, maximizing profitability.
