Makino wire EDM
The Makino wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), is a high-precision cutting machine that uses an electrically charged wire capable of 4 axis cutting. It utilises the UV head offset for tapered sides up to 35 degrees while also being able to trace profiles accurately. The Makino wire EDM operates through material thickness with Z height fixed throughout process.
