Newly developed DUO technology for .012-inch-diameter wire provides 30 percent faster cutting over .010-inch-diameter wire technologies while using 30 percent less wire than other standard .012-inch wire technologies.
Makino’s wire delivery system consumes up to 40 percent less wire than other standard systems. As the cost of wire continues to increase, this can amount to tens of thousands of dollars saved each year in wire costs.
The latest DUO-Series are the only wire EDM machines on the market today that offer a choice of split precision or PICO precision wire guide systems based on the specific applications and needs of our customers.
DUO43 and DUO64 machines offer an advanced Automatic Wire Threading (AWT) system that achieves incredible AWT times of 10 seconds or less, even at full Z-stroke and in the most demanding wire-threading situations.
The Makino U-Series U32j and U53j machines achieve a higher degree of accuracy and finish capabilities.
The massive U86 can handle table loads up to 6,600 pounds with a 20-inch Z-axis.
The UPJ-2 horizontal wire EDM is designed for extreme micromachining applications. In real-life test cuts, it achieved surface finishes measured in the nanometer range and auto-threading of tungsten wire down to .0008 inches in diameter.
