The ProtoMAX is an excellent user-friendly machine to build a curriculum around advanced manufacturing technology. Compact, safe, and easy-to-use, the ProtoMAX is a perfect teaching tool. Several universities have elected to add ProtoMAX to their engineering, material sciences, robotics, and arts programs, allowing students to experience hands-on innovative technology. With the clamshell cover and submerged cutting, the ProtoMAX is a safe and quiet (approx. 76 dB) iteration of a light industrial machine.
Featuring OMAX engineering in a space friendly package, the ProtoMAX delivers 30,000 psi cutting power with a 5 hp pump. Whether metal, glass, plastic, or wood, the ProtoMAX cuts virtually any material under 1 in. thick with a 12 in. by 12 in. cutting area. The system utilizes a 230-240 VAC, single phase outlet and does not require any hardwiring. The pump and cutting table are on casters for easy relocation. Work material is submerged under water for clean, quiet cutting that won’t disrupt a shared workspace. The ProtoMAX cuts with no heat-affected zone and no change to the material properties.
OMAX Corporation has developed the OMAX, MAXIEM, GlobalMAX, and ProtoMAX brands offering a full spectrum of waterjet machine tool capability. The ISO 9001:2015 certified company designs, manufactures, assembles and tests components as a complete system to ensure optimum performance. OMAX Corporation also has the most comprehensive service and support network in the waterjet industry to keep its customers ahead of the manufacturing curve. OMAX Corporation is a Hypertherm Company.

OMAX Corporation celebrates 25 years of leading waterjet technology
OMAX Corporation, is celebrating 25 years of leading waterjet technology. A special event takes place at OMAX’s Kent, Washington campus on July 27th, 2018. The event will feature the latest advancements in waterjet machining, live cutting demonstrations and tours of the company’s manufacturing factory.
Dr. John Cheung and Dr. John Olsen founded OMAX in 1993, having found a way to revolutionise the waterjet machining method. A new type of motion control technology and proprietary software ushered the development of the first truly affordable waterjet system to offer fast, precise and consistent results. Today, OMAX Corporation shapes the future of waterjet machining with diverse, highly advanced product solutions that offer the broadest range of table sizes, pumps, accessories, and software on the market.
OMAX Corporation’s 225,000 square foot facility will be on full display for the anniversary event. From research and development to bridge assembly, visitors will tour the entire process of how a waterjet machine is created. You will see where OMAX’s largest waterjet machines are assembled, in addition to how direct-drive pumps are built. Learn about what your waterjet can do in the training centre and then see it for yourself in demonstration lab.
Event attendees will be able to experience the new ProtoMAX abrasive waterjet. ProtoMAX is a compact, self-installed cutting system ideally suited for prototyping and relatively low volume cutting of almost any material under two inches thick. The ProtoMAX brings all the versatility benefits of large abrasive waterjet cutters in a sleek and economic package that’s perfect for small job shops, engineering classrooms, makerspaces and for personal use.
In 2017, the OMAX Corporation achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification. This latest edition of the ISO 9001 quality management standard covers design, development, production and service and ensures the company has a process for continuous improvement in all four areas.
OMAX’s abrasive waterjet technology provides a flexible and beneficial alternative to more conventional machining. Abrasive waterjet machines accurately cut simple to complex shapes from virtually any material and thickness significantly faster than traditional CNC machining techniques. Furthermore, the cold-cutting process of waterjet machining eliminates thermal stress in the workpiece material, preventing the hardening and warping that often occurs during conventional cutting processes.
