By combining innovative Makino machine tools and software with game-changing support from Makino Engineering Services, shops of every size are competing and winning the kind of work that matters on the global EDM stage. The flexibility of Makino technology and proven turnkey engineering solutions allows for EDM solutions at all levels to help further reduce operational costs.
With more than 140 patents, we leverage technology and innovation in every EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining). It gives our machines an edge over any other solution. With a Makino on the shop floor, companies realize faster processing times, lower costs and superior surface finishes for even the most complex part geometries. Our expertise with EDM is paying dividends for manufacturers. Here’s how we do it.
We’ve improved machine productivity by intelligently streamlining the interface. Your operators work faster and more efficiently with a touchscreen control that’s as easy to use as a tablet. Reduce operator errors with built-in operation steps and instant access to video tutorials and help functions.
We’re helping clients build medical hand tools, aerospace housings, jigs and surface fixtures with higher quality and speed. Our machines burn hotter, cutting parts 18 to 44 percent faster while holding tolerances of straightness to 0.0005” (T.I.R.) with one pass and 0.0002” (T.I.R) with two passes.
Our exclusive process technology found on Makino’s complete line of Ram EDMs that use a proprietary nontoxic powder called µSC and mixed into the dielectric fluid that helps produce superior surface finishes in a significantly shorter time.
Makino EDM exclusive that gives you industry-leading control technology. As part of the Makino UPJ-2, the world’s only conventional horizontal wire EDM machine, WireWIZARD technology delivers higher speed and better surface finishes with fewer passes and superior accuracy, with substantially reduced consumable and maintenance costs. WireWIZARD helps make the UPJ-2 the ideal choice for micromachining applications such as micro-miniature molds, fiber optics, inkjet nozzles and medical instruments.
BellyWIZARD™ is an exclusive Makino technology that increases straightness up to 40 percent. The result is that fewer passes are required compared to conventional wire EDM approaches. Makino’s BellyWIZARD™ technology automatically selects optimum machining parameters.
SurfaceWIZARD is an innovation from Makino that virtually eliminates witness lines that occur due to material thickness and stepped changes, all while maintaining part straightness.

There is no magic formula for discovering the optimum number of parts that can be placed on your fixture, though a few general rules apply. In essence, the optimum configuration point is a cross between the cycle time of a part and the number of parts per fixture. One must also consider that different...
