Makino is pleased to announce its upcoming 2019 Makino Technology Expo, a biennial exhibition highlighting new and improved manufacturing technologies, processes and strategies vital to transforming machining operations. The three-day event takes place September 10-12 at Makino’s Technology Center in Auburn Hills, Mich.
The event is set to include demonstrations of some of the company’s latest high-precision machining technologies, including the U6 Wire EDM H.E.A.T. Extreme, a 0.016-inch wire enabled with Athena Voice Interoperability, the F5 Pro6 vertical machining center and MHmax, the company’s machine health monitoring software. More than 20 machines are on display, with multiple demonstrations displaying state-of-the-art machining process solutions. There will also be guest speakers and special exhibits from various partnering companies including: Mastercam, Mitsubishi Tool, Erowa, NS Tool, MST, CAM Tool, Big Kaiser and Zoller.
At the expo, manufacturers can meet with Makino engineers for one-on-one consultations to identify machining solutions that best fit their needs. Educational presentations are scheduled to cover a wide variety of manufacturing solutions from five-axis machining techniques to automation systems and advanced EDM control technologies. In addition, attendees of the Expo can listen to special guest presentations from Sho Fujita, Ph.D. - Chief Digital Officer and Executive Manager of S.I.T. Division of Makino; John Phillips - President of Phillips Precision Medicraft; and Laurie Harbour - President and CEO of Harbour Results Inc.

High Energy Applied Technology will produce the accuracy, geometry, speed and surface finish that is required of today’s high quality molds.
The production of fine surface finishes in the cavity does not come with the technological improvements of the EDM sinker unless an electrode material of higher quality is used.
Software can help compensate for excessive erosion during taper cutting with wire EDM.
