Efficiently machine aluminum and stainless steel with reliability and accuracy
Machines Best Suited to Make Your Semiconductor Parts
Makino machines are designed and built with the rigidity and accuracy needed to achieve exceptional surface finish on vacuum chamber O-ring grooves and sealing surfaces. Long reaches into window pockets are also no problem with Makino’s renowned spindles. The 1-Series machining centers are stable and reliable machines that can operate at higher speeds without compromising precision. For applications on larger parts that call for a high volume of material removal, the optional 20,000 RPM high-speed/high-power spindle available on the a81nx, a92, and a120nx can achieve even higher metal removal rates for superior performance to meet the demands of the application.
KNT Manufacturing, located in Newark, California, is a manufacturer of precision machined components for the semiconductor and medical device industries. With over 120 pieces of equipment— of which about 60% are Makino machines — they have the capability to manufacture large chamber-type parts.
KNT utilizes Makino’s linear pallet pool system to eliminate redundant setup and improve their customer response time. This system has the ability to pull up an old part number, the tools and the fixture needed, and run it – making it possible to ship the part the next day after receiving a PO.
KNT’s founder and owner says, “Makino is the best machine I have used in all my life in the machine shop industry”.
