Every job matters. Bring Makino Engineering Services to the table early and often to make the most of every opportunity. >>
High-Energy Applied Technology, or H.E.A.T., is the “hottest” new technology in wire EDM machining. H.E.A.T. cuts parts 18 to 44 percent faster while holding tolerances of straightness to 0.0005" (T.I.R.) with one pass and 0.0002" (T.I.R.) with two passes, making it ideal for application matter, like medical hand tools and piece parts, aerospace housings, jigs and holding fixtures.
High-Quality Surface Finish, or HQSF™, is an optional Makino exclusive process technology found on Makino’s complete line of Ram EDMs that use a proprietary nontoxic powder called µSC and mixed into the dielectric fluid that helps produce superior surface finishes in a significantly shorter time.
WireWIZARD™ is another Makino EDM exclusive that gives you industry-leading control technology. As part of the Makino UPJ-2, the world’s only conventional horizontal wire EDM machine, WireWIZARD technology delivers higher speed and better surface finishes with fewer passes and superior accuracy, with substantially reduced consumable and maintenance costs. WireWIZARD helps make the UPJ-2 the ideal choice for micromachining applications such as micro-miniature molds, fiber optics, inkjet nozzles and medical instruments.
