OMAX Corp., a leading manufacturer of abrasive waterjet machining systems, has released Version 11 of its innovative, patented control software -- making it the first waterjet manufacturer to release control software that runs on the Microsoft® Windows Vista operating system, according to the company.
OMAX tested Windows Vista on its machines for over a year, perfecting the application to ensure that it worked at peak efficiency for machine tool motions and tool path execution.
Version 11 supports OMAX’s exclusive Intelli-MAX® technologies and includes a host of fresh enhancements, such as new DWF and PDF file importing, updated DWG, DXF and IGES, as well as other file import filters designed to provide maximum compatibility with additional software. It is now also available in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Chinese and Polish. In addition to running on Windows Vista, Version 11 will maintain compatibility with Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems, allowing users to choose whichever operating system they prefer.
Like all OMAX software upgrades, Version 11 is free to OMAX customers. The official software release of Version 11 was available as of July 2, 2007, and can also be downloaded from the OMAX customer service Web site.
