11 May 2015 - INNOVATION DEFINED: Issue 4 – Single Source Solutions


Global competition and market conditions in the metal working industry require you to operate at maximum efficiency and flexibility in order to sustain a competitive advantage. A turnkey manufacturing solution is one that encompasses a number of inter-related and integrated elements from the provision of a consulting service on production processes to the setting up of a system line that makes the best use of jigs, fixtures, tools and automation devices.

Delivered turnkey solution is aimed to increase the productivity of an existing process, or with the design and implementation of a new process to handle completely new product lines. The problem here for many customers is that they often lack in-house skills and experience to implement and integrate the turnkey solutions by themselves, or the lack of time to devote to a project of this complexity.

In this 4th issue of INNOVATION DEFINED, we share on the different aspects of turnkey solutions and technologies, ranging from suitable machining centres to the aspects of project management and engineering expertise. Join us through this journey and benefit from Makino’s accumulated years of experience in delivering customized, proven and reliable manufacturing solutions.
