NCMT/ Makino Competitive cycle times, high degree of accuracy
UK – Mach 2016 will see the UK debut of Makino’s most technologically advanced wire-cut machines, the U3 and U6, UK distributor NCMT says.
Designed for ease of operation, versatility and low operating cost, the machines are said to be the next-generation solution for improved profitability in wire EDM processes. Workpieces up to 1,000 mm by 800 mm by 400 mm with a maximum weight of 1,500 kg can be accommodated. Other features are reduced wire consumption rates and a choice of two guide configurations for the 0.1 to 0.3 mm diameter wire - conventional round or split V - to accommodate nearly all material types and flushing conditions.
