U3 ● U6

Makino WEDM U3 and U6


In the stamping industry , time can critical.

Makino’s U3 ● U6, with 3µmRz/ 3pass capability cuts faster than other technologies. The mechanical structure of the machines also assures that movements between details will be accurate anywhere within the work envelope. This combination of speed, finish, and repeatability will help increase productivity.

When PICO Precision guides are removed for any reason, no lengthy re-alignment procedures are required after re-installing the guides. Reinstalling takes less than 45 seconds per guide and is done by simply threading the guide into the head and tightening. The U3/ U6’s new PICO Precision guides are inserted into a precisely located tapped hole, maintaining the vertical position of the guide. Precision machined mating surfaces of the guide and head assure proper guide height.
