Expanding capacity matters to grinding and milling operations.
Reducing non-cut, setup and tool-changing times helps you achieve it.
Profitability has always mattered. What has changed in today’s globally competitive marketplace are the lengths you need to go to in order to ensure that every step of the machining process is as efficient and lean as possible. Grinding is no exception.
So, while Makino machining centers are helping manufacturers cut cost and time by minimizing non-cut time, setup time and tool-changing time, new technologies that combine grinding and milling in one setup in one machine are also reducing part cycle times by as much as 75 percent.
Better, faster, more cost-effective. Today’s capital equipment must be more flexible and capable than ever. That’s how Makino grinding technology is delivering for your business.
Every job matters. Bring Makino Engineering Services to the table early and often to make the most of every opportunity. >>
The Makino G7 multifunctional 5-axis horizontal machine, for example, represents the latest advance in combining grinding, drilling, boring and milling in one platform. Because you can go from milling to grinding in one machine, you’re not only saving on capital equipment, but you’re also able to perform several operations in a single setup, eliminating all the out-of-cut time that does nothing but add to your costs and lead-time.
