Introducing the New U6 H.E.A.T. EXTREME Wire EDM - the world’s first 0.016” wire performance EDM machine!
Makino’s new U6 H.E.A.T. EXTREME wire EDM doubles your cutting speed without increasing wire consumption.
Only Makino’s U6 H.E.A.T. EXTREME Wire Electrical Discharge Machine has added revolutionary high-speed machine features and is the first in the industry to use 0.016” (0.4mm) Ø wire —which cuts twice as fast as 0.010” (0.25mm) Ø wire
Built on the platform of Makino’s most popular U-Series Wire EDM machines, the U6 H.E.A.T. EXTREME uses a new 0.016” (0.4mm) Ø coated bedra topas H.E.A.T. wire that has been optimized for Makino's generator and is exclusive to the machine. Using an innovative coating (double layer with controlled zinc donation) this high-tech wire allows for top cutting speed at a reduced wire speed and thus gives you a lower manufacturing cost.

What makes up the U6 HEAT Extreme?
The U6 H.E.A.T. Extreme features the industry-first 0.4mm (0.016”) coated wire technology that increases rough machining rates up to 300% compared to traditional 0.010” brass wire while maintaining comparable wire consumption rates of 0.6 0.7 lbs./hour.
In order to obtain the results of this claim, key features are required, and come standard with the U6 H.E.A.T. Extreme. When the machine employs these features and is outfitted with bedra’s 0.4mm (0.016") diameter wire, the results are achieved.
bedra’s H.E.A.T Extreme is the world’s first EDM wire available in 0.016” (0.4mm) diameter, and is outfitted with new and innovative coating technologies that have been optimized for Makino’s U6 H.E.A.T. Extreme Wire EDM machine.
Its, innovative coating technology utilizes a unique hybrid zinc-enriched double layer that provides several machining benefits:
• Achieve top cutting speeds
• Reduced wire consumption rates
• Prevention of wire breaks
• Reliable Auto-Threading
• Lower Manufacturing Costs
