What Owners Say

  • We like having a waterjet as opposed to plasma or laser because it's more diverse.

    Tim Trotter, President of Troco Custom Fabricators
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Thanks for being a really good company to work with!
