National Manufacturing Week closed its doors for another year. Thousands of people packed the Sydney Showgrounds for this year’s event.

OMAX exhibited at the show this year with two Headland representatives helping out over the three days. Visitors were attracted to the Maxiem 1530 waterjet on display and enjoyed watching a number of demonstrations.

Anthony Mitchell, NSW Sales Manager at Headland says people were attracted to the stand with the live demonstrations of cutting various intricate workpieces using our Maxiem abrasive waterjet machine.

“OMAX are global leaders in abrasive waterjet machining systems offering the highest quality equipment with superior software”, so to see this machine working up close and how easy it is to use is a great opportunity. People are able to see for themselves why waterjet machinery is suitable for cutting just about anything with precision, accuracy and speed,” he says.


The Maxiem 1530 waterjet can cut any material quickly and efficiently, maximising profitability. It also comes with a rigid tank design to handle common plate sizes with room to spare. It has a number of benefits to assist manufacturers like:

  • Superior Hydraulic horse power at the Nozzle offering fastest cutting cycles
  • More efficient cutting using a direct drive pump system and variable frequency drive
  • Can easily cut almost any material, from steel and titanium to carbon fibre, composites, glass, and more.
