Makino at NPE 2015 Plastics Show

Orlando, FL – Makino showed their latest solutions for the plastics industry at the NPE 2015 International Plastics Show in Orlando, Florida.

The Makino D300 5-axis Vertical Machining Center displayed is designed to deliver superior sustained dynamic accuracy in full five-face machining applications. Equipped with core-cooled ballscrews and temperature-controlled direct-drive motors and spindle, the D300 provides thermally stable machining conditions for the highest degree of precision and finishing quality. The design of the direct-drive rotary axes gives manufacturers the speed and positioning repeatability to be productive in a wide variety of complex 3-D workpieces.   The D300 machine comes equipped with a 15,000-rpm HSK-A63 spindle with 120Nm (42Nm continuous) of torque for flexible, high-speed machining of various workpiece materials, including steel, aluminum and titanium. Optional spindle configurations consist of a 20,000-rpm HSK-A63 spindle and 30,000-rpm HSK-F63 spindle.

Also showcased was the Makino U3 Wire EDM. Designed for ease of operation, versatility and low operating cost, the U3 is the next-generation solution for improved profitability in wire EDM processes. With the addition of Makino's new HyperCut technology and Hyper-i control, even novice operators can program and produce leading-edge part finishes in the most complex feature geometries with the U3. A user-friendly interface similar to that found on tablets and smartphones makes operation very intuitive. This is a significant competitive advantage for shops experiencing difficulty replacing skilled EDM operators.   The U3 offers X-, Y- and Z-axis travels of 370mm by 270mm by 220mm, respectively. The U3 can accommodate a maximum workpiece size of 770mm by 590mm by 220mm, with a payload of 1,322 lbs. Other features of the U3 are reduced wire-consumption rates, dual digitally controlled flush pumps and a choice of two wire-guide configurations—conventional round or Split V guide system—to accommodate any material types and flushing conditions from 0.004" to 0.012" wire (0.1~0.3mm). An extensive cutting condition library provides optimized conditions for standard hard brass wires, high-speed coated wires and high-taper soft wires. The depth and versatility of the entire cutting condition library ensure that all applications can be machined at optimum productive levels.
