Makino’s new U6 H.E.A.T. EXTREME wire EDM doubles your cutting speed without increasing wire consumption.
 
Only Makino’s new 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 new 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.
