A part of Makino’s award-winning U-Series of wire EDM machines, the U86 relies on advanced generator technology for significantly faster cycle times while achieving superior surface finishes and workpiece accuracy. With a rigid, compact design capable of handling large molds and dies within a small machine footprint, the U86 can slash cycle time by 50 percent while achieving high-quality surface finishes of 35mRmax in just three machining passes.



The unified Hyperi control delivers an identical streamlined interface to both Wire and Sinker EDM operations, and provides new levels of capability, efficiency, and user friendliness. New Generation – Touch screen controller available for both Sinker and Wire EDM that makes machining easy as Ready, Set , Go! Some functions include:

E-Tech Doctor

E-Tech Doctor can help you achieve your perfect part! E-Tech Doctor is a revolutionary method of adjusting machining conditions to create the desirable result.

EDM Assist Functions


All machine manuals reside electronically within the Hyper i control , and are organized with index and search functions for quick access.


On-board training system with integrated video provides a convenient training and reference tool.

Consumables Tracking

Monitor and track machine consumables and maintenance intervals.


3µmRz / 3 Pass Machining Improves Productivity

Under standard machining condition, the U86 machine is able to deliver a surface finish of 3µmRz with just 3 pass machining. This met the requirement of cutting blades of progressive die used in precision metal stamping operation.

Workpiece Material : Steel(SKD-11)
Wire Used : 0.25mm dia. Brass Wire
Material Thickness : 80 mm
Surface Finish : 3μmRz
