Makino’s U6 H.E.A.T. (High Efficiency Advanced Technology) Extreme wire EDM features Athena voice command control capability and 0.016" diameter wire technology. It is said to achieve new levels of productivity, operational economy and usability.

The machine’s Hyper-i control uses a dual touchscreen interface that functions like a smartphone using large, 24" HD displays. The control is streamlined to reduce the number of inputs required for common tasks. Advanced help functions such as EDM Assist and E-Tech Doctor support operators of varying skill levels.

HyperDrive precision wire tension control technology reduces wire consumption rates for different wire sizes and material types and reduces operating costs without sacrificing machining speed or accuracy, the company says. H.E.A.T. Extreme technology, along with the company’s new 0.016" diameter H.E.A.T. wire, is said to increase machining speeds by two or three times compared to traditional 0.010" diameter wire operations without increasing wire consumption.

The machine is configured with high-capacity, independently controlled flush pumps for enhanced efficiency. A large filter filtration system features an air purge function for safer and faster filter replacement.
