Our continued investment in improving machining strategies, methods and techniques.

When you make what matters for today’s automotive, aerospace, medical and other highly specialized industries, you’ve earned your stripes. Yet, as the most successful players on the manufacturing stage understand, the part designs, materials and specification requirements change rapidly. Makino is the company you need to help you understand the machining technologies and methods you need to stay on top. 

Makino’s investment in process research and development is how.

No other company has invested as heavily in the future. Makino’s global Titanium R&D Center, for example, provides manufacturers with the best application expertise by combining Makino’s titanium machining capabilities with leading process research technologies. Here, machine tools, cutting tools, machining process and coolants are developed and integrated to address the specific properties of titanium.

Other R&D efforts being conducted by a select group of engineers target emerging technologies such as micromachining and the growing list of exotic materials that present new opportunities for those who are willing to explore these new technologies.

Whatever the results, process research and development from Makino is sure to remain your first choice for seizing new opportunities as global markets continue to open up new possibilities.
