On January 10, 2017, Omax Corp., Kent, WA, was one of 37 companies to receive the prestigious Tibbetts Award at the White House. The award is given to small businesses and individuals by the US Small Business Administration (SBA) in recognition for innovative research and development of transferrable technology. Omax received the award for its innovation in the area of micro-abrasive waterjet technology, culminating in the MicroMax JetMachining Center.

“Receiving the 2016 Tibbets Award is truly an honor,” says Dr. Peter Liu, senior scientist at Omax and creator of the MicroMax abrasive waterjet. “It’s great to be recognized for our R&D work at such a high level.”

The MicroMax provides a positioning accuracy of less than 5 microns and can cut extremely small parts in virtually any material, according to company officials, and its Tilt-A-Jet cutting head allows for taper-free edges and rapid cutting speeds.
