Power and Performance for Increased Throughput
Productivity is one of the single leading factors to influence the global competitiveness of automotive part manufacturing. Tier suppliers must continually seek out new methods for reducing cycle times and increasing throughput in order to confidently and successfully bid on new orders. This means cutting out every possible second spent both in and out of the cutting process. No other component of a manufacturing system influences productivity more than the machine tools themselves.
Obtaining a competitive level of productivity requires advanced machining technologies with exceptional speed, power and performance, no matter the material or cutting process. An effective machine solution doesn’t force manufacturers to scale back cutting parameters due to concerns for accuracy, quality or repair, but rather empowers them to take aggressive and creative cutting approaches for the highest achievable metal-removal rates.
These productive principles are at the heart of every Makino machining center. With extra-rigid castings, proprietary high-performance spindles and advanced thermal management technologies, these machines are designed for the toughest cutting conditions and most strenuous production environments. Makino equipment employs technologies that help to reduce not only in-cycle cutting times but also non-cut times, such as tool changes, rapid movements and 4th-axis positioning. The net result is a high-performance machine solution with dynamic production efficiency for competitive cycle times and maximum throughput.
