U6 H.E.A.T Wire EDM

PRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES and USER-FRIENDLINESS
THAT MATTER FOR RELIABLE & EFFICIENT THROUGHPUT

Like the smaller U3 H.E.A.T., the U6 H.E.A.T. Wire EDM machine provides an ideal mix of speed, accuracy, and surface finish capability with larger travels to tackle the most demanding applications with new levels of user-friendliness and efficiency.  The U6 H.E.A.T. expands on the diverse capabilities of the U6 with enhancements to the flushing and filtration system to boost productivity.  The upgraded H.E.A.T. (High Energy Applied Technology) configuration produces dramatic increases to cutting speed, especially in poor flush applications, while maintaining part straightness and accuracy.

Makino’s Hyper i control delivers intuitive and familiar touch Pinch/Swipe/Drag operations similar to smartphones and tablets to the U6 H.E.A.T. machine. The operator is provided with an effective and commanding view of the control with the large 24” class HD touch-screen display that is further enhanced with a standard mouse and keyboard and full-function advanced Handbox.   The Hyper i control utilizes a straightforward 3-Step operation process of Program/Setup/Run, and this efficient and user-friendly interface is used for all Makino Wire and RAM EDM machines.  The Hyper i control is also standard with digital onboard electronic manuals, instructional training videos, and advanced E-Tech Doctor help functions that empower the operator with integrated and convenient resources right at their fingertips. 
 
The U6 H.E.A.T. machine footprint is minimized with a space-savings design that integrates the di-electrode reservoir into the base machine casting, which also improves the machines thermal stability.  Work tank access is excellent using the pneumatic raise and fall front door, and allows access to the underside of the work piece or lower machine head even with a large work piece on the table, and the door also has a mid-height level function for greater flexibility. The U6 H.E.A.T. utilizes a Split-V Wire Guide system that requires less maintenance and last 3~4 times longer than traditional Round Wire Guides.  Machine maintenance and consumable wear items are also reduced when compared to traditional designs, which provides greater productivity while reducing operational costs.

As the industry leader in low wire consumption technologies, Makino has worked to reduce the single largest expenses in operating a wire EDM machine. The U6 H.E.A.T. contains a robust machining conditions library that has been developed to provide an optimal mix of Speed, Accuracy, Surface Finish, and Low Wire Consumption for both sealed and poor flush applications.  The machine utilizes larger capacity independent dual flushing pumps, and harnesses this additional raw horse power to deliver higher pressure and volume of flushing to machining to reduce Rough Cut cycle time.  The machine is also standard with a larger capacity (4) filter filtration system to support the higher capacity flushing capability, and are located in a non-submerged cabinet that includes an integrated Filter Air-Purge function that evacuates the water from the filters before exchanging, reducing the weight of the spent filter and preventing the traditional dirty, wet slip hazards that are normally encountered with filter replacement.

U6 H.E.A.T. enhancements from U6:
        •  Standard 4-Sided hardened work table
        •  Split-V Wire Guide System
        •  Higher capacity flush pumps (2 pumps)
        •  4 Filter filtration system
        •  Higher capacity Chiller Unit
        •  Standard mouse & keyboard
        •  H.E.A.T. Technology for the High Speed machining of poor flush applications
