Makino’s (Mason, OH) next-generation wire EDMs, the DUO series, provide enhanced performance, accuracy, speed, ease of operation and maintenance with features such as dual wire guide options, DuoSpark generator, dual anchored ball screws, and dual high pressure flush pumps.

 

 

This is really the next step in Makino’s wire EDM design,” says Jeff Kiszonas, an EDM product manager. “With recent technologies such as HEAT, SurfaceWIZARD and PICO guides, our machines have revolutionized EDM. The DUO series takes these advancements a step further, and will enhance our ability to serve more customer’s needs and provide the most technologically advanced, yet simple to operate, wire EDMs available.”

The DUO series features two models, the DUO43 and DUO64. Both models feature a 20 percent reduction in footprint size compared to their Makino SP-series counterparts. The sizes for the DUO43 and 64 are 74.8 in x 102.3 in and 82.7 in x 122 in with X, Y, and Z axis travels of 17.7 in, 12.0 in, 12.6 in and 25.6 in, 15.7 in, 16.5 in respectively.

The DUO43 will accommodate a maximum workpiece size of 27.9 in x 22.0 in x 11.8 in with a payload of 1,764 lb, while the DUO64 holds sizes up to 35.8 in x 26.0 in x 15.7 in with a maximum payload of 2,200 lb. This series was designed to provide a smaller footprint and ease of installation, without sacrificing work area.

The DUO series features dual wire guide options, allowing the user to choose either V-guide or PICO Precision (round) wire guides. Whether the application is small hole threading, threading small holes in close proximity, maintaining land accuracy in contoured stamping dies, cutting tapers up to 45 deg, or general WEDM job shop work, Makino is the only WEDM builder that provides a guide solution to every WEDM application.

This option provides split precision guides for most general work including high tapers, and PICO precision guides for accurate threading of small holes in close proximity, highly accurate tapers and taper transitions up to 10 degrees, and maintaining variable height land details.
