Reduce Processing Time of Large Mold Tooling, Die Cast Parts

The EDNC21 sinker electrical discharge machine from Makino uses dual heads and Hyper-i control, HyperCut technology, and a new HS-Rib high speed Z-Axis to provide an industry-changing advantage in improved productivity that lowers the tool build time for extra-large workpieces, such as automotive bumper and fascia molds.
The dual-head configuration of the EDNC21 from Makino enables shops to process multiple fine details in a part at the same time, reducing total processing time at the same level of accuracy and surface finish as sinker EDMs one-tenth its size.
