5X Continuous Machining

Five axis machines designed to achieve high accuracies and finishes with cycle time reductions from 18-70%

High-Speed 5-Axis Machining for Die/Mold

The D200Z five-axis vertical machining center’s unique kinematic design incorporates extreme speeds and precision for tighter tolerances and flawless blends and matches in complex 3D contoured work pieces.

See the D200Z’s outstanding volumetric accuracy (less than 2 micron total) of the table and full axis motions using a digital indicator with 100 nanometer resolution. This combined with the core-cooled spindle and SGI.5 motion control software provides the highest degree of accuracies, quality of blends and matches of multifaceted contoured 3D geometries dies and molds demand.

5XC: Unprecedented Speed and Precision

5XC (Five Axis Continuous) is revolutionizing 5-axis machining. These new technologies are reducing programming, cycle and lead-times for complex, 3D, Contoured surface die/mold and medical components by anywhere from 18% to 70% and more – depending upon the application. At the same time, it is dramatically cutting part costs, extending tool life with enhance surface finishes and providing superior precision.

Makino’s Rich Die/Mold History

Makino has a rich history in building machining center for the die/mold industry. It began in 1937, and continues this day. We are developing new machining solutions – not just in the machine itself, but in its control software.

See this history from the beginning of our die/mold partnerships to our latest five-axis vertical machining centers – the V80s and V90s. Both are built to provide our customers faster throughout, finer finishes, and lower costs.
