Count on Your Single-Source Provider to Coordinate Every Step of Your Project and Ensure On-Time, On-Budget Implementation

No manufacturing process except automation ensures your company must be able to adapt quickly to continually shifting customer requirements and still enjoy solid returns. Makino offers you single-source expertise in automated machining solutions to meet those demands. 
 
Since the mid-1990s, Makino has designed and installed machine-tool automation solutions for manufacturers around the world. Today, no one is better positioned to arm you with a complete system of machining centers, controls, robots and conveyors. Makino keeps companies of all sizes, including machine shops and tool, die and mold shops, ahead of the rapidly evolving marketplace.
 
Better Process. Better Pricing. Better Parts.
We design and implement highly repeatable production processes for the lowest possible part cost to enable your business to compete globally.
 
Makino provides unmatched capabilities to create robust production-ready processes—including machinery, fixtures, tools, programs and documentation—for parts with complex geometries, demanding deadlines, challenging budget constraints and Six Sigma standards. Hundreds of manufacturers in need of integrated flexible manufacturing systems have taken advantage of these services—each benefiting from guaranteed cycle times, improved process capability (Cpk) and cost per part that meet or exceed their production goals.
 
We manage every step of a project with single-point contact project management, project engineering, on-site supervision, and post-installation training and support. Together, these services give manufacturers the confidence and security to focus their valuable time on other critical aspects of their business.

Our Role
Designing and implementing automation systems is a major undertaking. The last thing your company needs is to invest in machines and software from several vendors that do not cooperate or do not aspire to make your company’s business interests their priority.
 
Makino supplies you with a single point of communication during all phases of your automation project. We coordinate all activities among your company, Makino and other equipment or software providers. We lead the integration of machines with robot platforms, including Fanuc, ABB and Yaskawa, along with cell control platforms such as A-B, Mitsubishi and Omron.
 
We facilitate manpower and scheduling. On site, we coordinate all installation activities and manage third-party suppliers.
 
We provide you with detailed tracking of the progress of your project.
 
In short, Makino takes full responsibility for the implementation of your automated system on time and on budget.

Benefits
Automated cells reduce the cost of machining a part in ways that reach beyond one particular application:

  • Increase machine utilization
