Makino (Auburn Hills, MI)  introduces its new rust-preventive technology for water-based wire EDMs. This electric anti-rust unit disrupts the oxidation process in submerged parts, eliminating manual cleaning time and maximizing profit for long run-time wire EDM processes.

Rust occurs on steel parts as a result of a simple chemical reaction where positive ions from the steel workpiece dissolve in the water and react with oxygen molecules to form iron oxide on the surface of the workpiece. Makino’s electric anti-rust unit addresses this issue by using a simple circuit to negatively charge workpieces, preventing the oxidation process from occurring. Machines equipped with the new electric anti-rust unit have eliminated signs of rusting in steel parts for up to 24 hours, even after machining has stopped.

The anti-rust option can be ordered on new DUO and U-Series wire EDMs or retrofitted to those existing models.
