The U3 H.E.A.T. features Makino’s Hyper i control that provides intuitive and familiar touch Pinch/Swipe/Drag operations similar to smartphones and tablets. This efficient and user-friendly interface is used for all Makino Wire and RAM EDM machines, and utilizes a straightforward 3-Step operation process of Program/Setup/Run. The operator is provided with an effective and commanding view of the control with the large 24” class HD touch-screen display that is further enhanced with a standard mouse and keyboard. The Hyper i control is also standard with a full-function advanced Handbox that provides greater convenience and flexibility, and contains digital onboard electronic manuals, instructional training videos, and advanced E-Tech Doctor help functions that empower and support the operator with integrated resources right at their fingertips.
Like the U3, the U3 H.E.A.T. utilizes a space-savings design that integrates the di-electrode reservoir into the base machine casting, reducing the footprint while improving thermal stability. The stationary work table design delivers repeatable accuracy regardless of work piece size or weight, and excellent access to the work tank is provided by the pneumatic raise and fall front door that allows access to the underside of the work piece or lower machine head even with a large work piece on the table. The U3 H.E.A.T. contains a robust machining conditions library that has been developed to provide an optimal mix of Speed, Accuracy, Surface Finish, and Low Wire Consumption for both sealed and poor flush applications. As the industry leader in low wire consumption technologies, Makino has worked to reduce the single largest expenses in operating a wire EDM machine, providing efficient and user-friendly operation that achieves new levels in productivity for the most demanding applications.
