Wire EDM

Double cutting speed without increasing wire consumption with our latest model. Makino is the world leader in wire EDM, giving you faster processing times and superior surface finishes for even the most complex part geometries.

Half the maintenance, half the wire

Most EDM machines chew through more than one pound of wire per hour, making wire consumption the biggest expense of operating wire EDMs. A Makino EDM machine uses half that, providing a significant long-term savings in $1,000’s of dollars per year in operating cost. 

The wire consumption unspool speed on Makino’ Wire EDM’s is set to a constant low rate where optimal machining speeds can be maintained without the wire breaking.  Makino has also developed a unique adaptive control technology called BellyWIZARD that automatically compensates and adjusts the wire mechanically based on work piece thickness to ensure the best part straightness and precisionc while also incorporating the advanced HyperDrive wire transport and tensioning system.

Our EDM machines also utilize a unique fully digital dual flush pump configuration that provides automatic dynamic adaptive control of flushing to the Upper and Lower machine heads in real-time during operation.  This intelligent and highly effective configuration provides double the horsepower in flushing capacity and ensures that the necessary flush is applied optimally to when and where it is needed for best performance and productivity.

Other Makino EDM advantages include:
  • Up to 50% less maintenance, which is a critical benefit compared to the usual high-maintenance requirements associated with Wire EDM production. Makino EDMs also have less consumable wear parts.
  • Large HD Touchscreen control that works like a smartphone. Operators of all skill levels can use this streamlined interface that reduces machine training requirements.  Only Makino can provide the advanced Hyper-i control that provides an identical productive interface for all Makino Wire EDM, Sinker EDM, and EDM Drilling machines, which further reduces training support needs. 
  • Easy automation. Get predetermined optimized settings for any application and 24/7 production with no attendant required.


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. A large high definition 24” touch screen functions like a smart device (phone/tablet), allowing operators of all skill levels to benefit from its inviting and familiar operation that substantially reduces training requirements. The Hyper-i control further elevates an operator’s capability with several integrated advanced functions, such as hyper-linked digital manuals and video tutorials, E-Tech Doctor, and EZ-Cut that deliver higher levels of productivity to the operator’s fingertips.

Which Makino EDM machines is right for you?
Makino offers a range of wire EDM wire machine solutions.
 
U-Series 
The U-Series includes wire EDM solutions that are the fastest in the industry. Unique to the industry, they can be configured with a choice of wire guide systems that best support your part and process requirements.  All machines feature dual independent flush pumps, turning flushing into a CNC programmable element, and the H.E.A.T. configuration provides higher flushing capacity for faster machining.
 
UPV-Series 
Ultra-high accuracy and the best possible surface finish are hallmarks of these oil-based dielectric wire EDMs. A stationary work table and programmable 3-sided rise and fall work tank give you easy access to the work zone and simplify automation.
 
UPN-Series 
Designed for the unattended operation of small wire and small part detail work. With pinpoint sub-micron precision and outstanding surface finish, these oil-based dielectric horizontal wire EDMs are ideal for small electronics, medical and micromachining applications.
