Feb. 23, 2018 – Lantek has obtained Omax Compatible Partner certification, and as a result it will now be able to integrate its Lantek Expert solution in OMAX waterjet cutting machines.
Used in different sectors, such as aeronautics, marble, naval and rail, waterjet cutting machines are designed to cut any material since they do not cause heat warping and can provide great finishing.
As explained by Francisco Pérez, Lantek’s OEM Channel Director, “All our customers will be able to take advantage and benefit from the compatibility of our software with one of the world’s largest manufacturers of waterjet cutting machines, since our software will optimize even more the capabilities of Omax machines. We are very excited about the agreement we have reached.”
Based in Kent, Wash., Omax Corp. is a manufacturer of advanced abrasive waterjet systems and owner of the Omax, Maxiem, GlobalMax and ProtoMax brands.
“Lantek’s certification is another example of how Omax works closely with software companies to deliver powerful solutions to manufacturing customers on a global scale,” said Stephen Bruner, vice president of marketing for Omax. “Our Compatible Partner program connects customers with third-party suppliers and also encourages these suppliers to develop software that improves the productivity of Omax customers and machines.”
The certification is part of the Lantek Partners Program to integrate its solutions and technology in cutting machines around the world. Through these product integrations, the company says it hopes to boost and strengthen both its relationship with partners and customers, and generate greater synergies, as well as improve interoperability and productivity for users.
Founded in 1986 in the Basque Country, Spain, Lantek offers its own software solutions in business manufacturing intelligence to help connect and convert factories into smart factories. It rounds off its range with the development of CAD/CAM/MES/ERP solutions for companies that manufacture metal parts from sheet, tubes and profiles with any cutting technology (laser, plasma, oxycut, waterjet, shearing and punching).
