Found – Optimo memorabilia

I found a number of software manuals for the Windows MMI systems we developed for Optimo.
There are some odds and ends as well, including two CD-ROMS.

It looks like the CDs include software and manuals for most of our Optimos, including the DOS systems.

Wow – I was afraid that was all lost.
Great techwriting samples, too.

About jmaechtlen

Worked at Amada for many years - mostly supporting their laser systems. I did cutting applications work, customer training, training materials, manuals, and more. Amada downsized in 2002, and I've done a bit of laser work since, but mostly technical writing. That's mostly been in IT, but also for custom machines and some work for Amada.

  1. It seams you return from time to time.
    I would be interested in all parts software and help regarding Prima Power / Amada Optimo 5 axis laser cutting machines.

    Yes, I don’t often visit these pages.
    Amada didn’t sell many machines here in the US.
    Most of them probably go directly to Prima for help, and don’t even think that someone else would have something for them.

    Probably some of them have been upgraded to newer controls and lasers.

    I would be delighted to hear about any of our old machines, and of their upgrades or history.
