OMAX Corp. (Kent, WA, US) is highlighting the benefits and advantages of its abrasive waterjets to machine composites and advanced other materials. OMAX personnel are explaining how the process of abrasive waterjet machining works with composite materials, with emphasis on the fact that waterjet cutting creates no heat-affected zone (HAZ), no change to  material properties, and how the small kerf size allows for close nesting of parts to maximize material use. Programming software demonstrations are also being presented. Booth E48.
