Makino technologies, more options, more efficiency at EMO 2013

Our overriding priority is to working with our customers as partners. We help companies large and small to use their existing technologies in new and different ways. Together with our customers, we set out to exploit the full potential of the intelligent functions a Makino machine offers or implement new applications. We do this by providing fresh stimuli and opening up new possibilities during consulting sessions, training courses or wherever our customers are working on their machines.

Besides striving for precision, we also appreciate any challenge to increase efficiency. The more optimised machining processes are, the more customers can harness the full potential of their machines. Then, and only then, will an investment in complementary technologies such as automation yield a better return.

Visit us at EMO and see for yourselves more than one hundred extraordinary workpieces, their backgrounds and the many stories they can tell. Talk to our experts about the individual challenges you want to tackle and your specific requirements – and we will help you find a solution.

In a nutshell, by striving to make improvements together, we give our customers a competitive edge. So why not feel free to join them!

Our answer to the slogan of this year’s EMO, “Intelligence in Production”: Makino’s leading-edge 5-axis machining

The advantages of 5-axis machining are remarkable: shorter set-up times, streamlined processes and, as a result, more efficient production. One of the benefits of 5-axis machining is the possibility of working with shorter tool lengths, which in turn leads to a higher feed rate. Moreover, some parts can only be produced using 5-axis simultaneous machining, e.g. impellers or leading edges.

Production can be optimised in different ways thanks to the extremely high level of accuracy achieved by 5-axis machining and the excellent stability of Makino machines.

However, more axes also make it more difficult to produce a workpiece exactly “to plan” – a fact that unfortunately is often underestimated. Makino has taken up this challenge and developed user-friendly programming software to carry out this task. Axis errors are easily corrected by measuring the axes of rotation, and the control system is adapted automatically.
