Oct. 9, 2013 - OMAX Corp. announced the launch of a version of its Intelli-MAX Software Suite, an intuitive control software that automatically optimizes the tool paths of the company's advanced abrasive waterjet systems. Intelli-MAX 20 incorporates several enhanced features that improve the speed and memory utilization of OMAX waterjets as well as new tools that allow for increased operator efficiency.

According to Carl Olsen, lead software engineer for OMAX Corporation, the Intelli-MAX Software Suite is what sets OMAX apart from the competition. "This proprietary software, which we continuously update and improve, requires minimal operator training and makes it easy for users to create precision parts faster and at a lower cost. Not only does the software simplify the control of the jet stream while cutting, it also automates programming and tool setup work," he said.

The new automatic toolpath planning engine in Intelli-MAX 20 improves the artificial intelligence of OMAX waterjets, creating less need for operator involvement, improved collision avoidance functionality and more efficient traversing between parts.

OMAX has also added a new scripting engine to Layout, the specialized CAD portion of the Intelli-MAX Software Suite. The scripting engine allows OMAX customers with advanced programming skills to create standalone applications for automating their machines. For example, customers can add barcodes to documents that when scanned the information is automatically built into the cutting parameters of the control software. The scripting engine also extends the commands of the CAD applications, which users can further leverage through OMAX's fee-based custom programming services.

Other functions of Intelli-MAX 20 include new circular window, bridging and capping commands, improved advanced 3D machining features, enhanced machine monitoring and alerts as well as new parametric shapes for easier 3D pipe cutting.

The new Intelli-MAX 20 Software Suite is free to all existing OMAX JetMachining Center owner. By continuously adding and updating its help screens, users have access to over 2,000 pages worth of the latest tutorials, troubleshooting guides, and tips and tricks directly at the control.
