Sinker EDM

Control technology delivers precision and a superb surface finish with a low cost per part.

Low cost solution for complex, precision metal part production. 

Sinker EDM uses a plasma channel in an insulating or dielectric fluid to cut metal. The control and precision of Sinker EDM gives manufacturers a low-cost solution for producing complex, angled 3-D shapes. Makino EDMs are designed for supreme reliability and industry leading precision, and produce high quality surface finishes while minimizing the number of required electrodes for lower manufacturing costs.

Makino EDM machines speed up the spark erosion process by improving flushing and debris removal through an increase in the Z-Axis cycle jump rate four times faster and acceleration rate 30 times faster than previous technology.  The enhancements to adaptive jump flushing and the all new higher power fully digital ES200A generator yield faster Sinker EDM machining speeds with significantly lower electrode wear.

The result: fewer electrodes required, faster cycle time with lower costs, and more uniform surface finishes that can eliminate the need for manual hand polishing.
 

Touchscreen control 

Makino EDMs stand apart with the intuitive Hyper-i control system, a streamlined and efficient interface that helps you get work done faster with fewer errors. A high definition 21.5” touch screen functions like a tablet, so operators of all skill levels have digital user manuals, help functions, and video training tutorials at their fingertips. You’ll improve user capability and productivity while reducing the need for training and classes.

Makino offers a range of Sinker EDM machining solutions.
 
EDAC-Series 
EDAC-Series machines are ultra-micromachining products. With pinpoint sub-micron precision and outstanding surface finish, these are ideal for small electronics and micromachining applications.
 
EDAF-Series 
Ideal for Die/Mold applications, the EDAF-Series combines speed, high accuracy and excellent surface finish capability. This machine uses a stationary worktable with a rise and fall work tank for easy access and simple automation. A highly versatile Fine Hole configuration is offered that enables both standard Sinker EDM and high accuracy EDM Drilling operations on a single machine.
EDGEi-Series 
Effective and reliable performance, combined with an ergonomic machine layout, drive efficiency for general precision machining. A dielectric reservoir and ATC (Automatic Tool Change) unit is built into the base casting to minimize floor space.
 
EDNC-Series 
User-friendly and ergonomic design delivers high speed performance and excellent surface finish. Seven models accommodate a range of workpiece sizes up to 122” x 71” (3.1m x 1.8m). A high-speed jump Z-axis motion using an optional HS-Rib Z-axis makes even the larger units as productive and accurate as smaller counterparts.
