Omax Corp., Kent, WA, will showcase how its advanced abrasive-waterjet technology quickly and accurately cuts simple to complex parts from virtually any material. Booth visitors will discover the endless machining possibilities of the company’s premium Omax JetMachining centers and versatile Maxiem JetCutting Centers, and a slew of accessories.
