Die/Mold

Faster throughput, finer finishes, and lower costs are all possible with Makino’s high-speed, hard-milling, and intelligent technology that quickly processes long, complex programs. Learn how Makino produces unmatched levels of consistency with less waste.

Faster speeds. Superior finishes.

A flawless part is critical in manufacturing dies and molds. But achieving perfection doesn’t have to take a long time. Makino’s high-speed machining, technology transfer, applications, software and engineering services speed up the process while maintaining a high level of quality and increasing productivity. 

Reduced cycle and lead times and lower labor costs are the results of rapid prototyping, high-performance milling, and no-polish EDM burning, which Makino technology provides. Using Makino machines along with our engineering and automation services, we strive to create a single continuous operation to create a mold. That means eliminating multiple setups, manual handling, and the need to move parts from machine to machine. A superior finish eliminates the time-consuming step of hand polishing. Simply put, you get parts that are flawless in less time.

 Faster speeds. Superior finishes.

Complex mold programs don’t slow Makino down. Our exclusive Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.5) technology processes long, complex programs at extremely fast speeds while producing a high level of accuracy and a superior finish.

The high-speed, high-accuracy of SGI.5 helps reduce the high-definition of 3D milling of dies and molds faster as compared to previous versions of this advanced technology. This can result in a reduction of cycle times.

Makino technology changes your die/mold business today, while enabling you to shape the market of the future.  Check out the Makino V-Series and F-Series machines to redefine your current way of mold making.

The challenges and needs of die and mold machining

Die and mold making are marked by long cycle times and single piece applications of high value work pieces. The process requires maximum thermal stability to guarantee form accuracy and seamless blending – all while running at optimum speed.

With our engineering and automation services, we strive to create unattended operation and reduced cycle times. That means creating a predictable stable process, capturing unattended machining time, eliminating multiple setups, manual handling, and the need to move parts from machine to machine. Plus, our superior finish eliminates the time-consuming step of hand polishing. Simply put, you get flawless parts in less time.

To control quality and performance, we design and manufacture our own spindles, and machine and assemble our structures in-house.This allows us to provide die/mold machines that feature:
  • Thermally stable platform
  • Spindle designed for maximum RPM continuous use
  • Rigid Machine construction for best dynamic accuracy

The Makino difference

  • Ongoing collaboration with our partners in the tooling, CAM, metrology and automation industries is the foundation for our approach.
 
  • Our staff is trained to look beyond a single machine project to understand your total process flow and the impact a Makino machine will have on your business, both upstream and downstream. Our engineers bring practical real-world tool-making experience to each part detail and help optimize machining processes for even the most difficult and demanding application.  
 
  • The interdependency of toolpath (CAM), cutting tools,  and machine capability are critical to the machining processes. On the surface, these elements are very similar for each application. But we recognize the different needs of each tooling segment and the performance specific differences within CAM software, cutting tools and machine platforms.
 
  • Most of all, we understand what it takes to automate these processes to micron level accuracy with nanometer level surface finishes.
