Wire EDM

Double cutting speed without increasing wire consumption with our latest model. Makino is the world leader in wire EDM, giving you faster processing times and superior surface finishes for even the most complex part geometries.
 

Efficient Wire EDM Solutions for Complex, High Quality Parts

Wire EDM uses an energized wire electrode in a submerged bath of dielectric fluid to machine conductive metals, and offers an efficient manufacturing method to produce part geometry details that are difficult to machine by other methods.  Makino EDMs are designed for supreme reliability and industry leading precision, and produce finer surface finishes while significantly lowering maintenance and consumables costs.

Touchscreen control  

Makino EDMs stand apart with the intuitive Hyper-i control system, a streamlined and efficient interface that helps you get work done faster.  A large high definition 24” touch screen functions like a smart device (phone/tablet), allowing operators of all skill levels to benefit from its inviting and familiar operation that substantially reduces training requirements.  The Hyper-i control further elevates an operator’s capability with several integrated advanced functions, such as hyper-linked digital manuals and video tutorials, E-Tech Doctor, and EZ-Cut that deliver higher levels of productivity to the operator’s fingertips.

Makino offers a range of wire EDM machining solutions.

UPN-Series 

The design enhances the unattended operation of small wire and small part detail work. With pinpoint sub-micron precision and outstanding surface finish, these oil-based dielectric horizontal wire EDMs are ideal for small electronics, medical and micromachining applications.

UP-Series 

Ultra-high accuracy and the best possible surface finish are hallmarks of these oil-based dielectric wire EDMs. A stationary work table and programmable 3-sided rise and fall work tank give you easy access to the work zone and simplify automation.

U-Series 

The U-Series machines are designed around features and solutions that drive production and optimal efficiency.  Unique to the industry, the U-Series can be configured with a choice of wire guide systems that best support the part and process requirements.  All machines feature dual independent flush pumps, turning flushing into a CNC programmable element, and the H.E.A.T. configuration provides higher flushing capacity for faster machining speeds of poor flush applications.
