Spindle core cooling/under race lubrication system Makino's unique spindle core cooling system circulates a large volume of temperature-controlled cooling oil through the center of the rotating spindle to cool it directly from the inside. Moreover, with under race lubrication, the cooling oil circulated through the spindle flows through holes in the inner bearing races to lubricate the bearings. The adoption of this cooling and lubrication system achieves higher rigidity, accuracy and machining speed. Additionally, the absence of any limitations on spindle usage facilitates continuous machining at top speed.

X-axis guideway cooling

The X-axis guideway is cooled to prevent heat generation during long hours of high-speed machining. Cooling oil controlled to the machine temperature is circulated through the saddle to keep the temperature constant. This suppresses thermal growth, especially in the Yaxis direction. Positional displacement of the spindle test bar is kept within several microns in every axis even after 12 hours of continuous operation in all axes.

Ball screw core cooling

DD motor drive*

Cooling oil controlled to the machine temperature is circulated through the inside of the ball screws to prevent heat generation during high-speed movement.

A high-speed, large-torque direct drive (DD) motor is adopted in both rotating axes (B and C). Cutting feed A/C-axes : 18,000 deg/min Maximum-torque : A-axis 5400 N-m, C-axis 2700 N-m

Motor flange cooling

Cooling oil is circulated through the motor flange to prevent motor heat from being transferred to the machine.

The DD motors are fitted with cooling jackets to suppress heat generation.
*Direct Drive (DD) system : Because the direct drive system does not use a worm gear, there is no backlash.

HORIZONTAL MACHINING CENTER

The functions needed for high-speed, high-accuracy machining of large dies & molds for car bumpers and instrument panels and the front panel of plasma displays are standard features of the MCC Series of horizontal machining centers.

Wide opening for easy handling of workpieces

This feed mechanism control system circulates compressed air between the slideways to adjust the air pressure according to table load changes so as to keep slideway resistance at a constantly low level. High-accuracy, high-quality machining is thus assured because performance is not affected by load changes even during high-speed machining with a large, heavy workpiece on the table.

Thermal Chamber
When submicron accuracy is demanded, the machine must be isolated from the effects of external heat. That is accomplished in an ordinary factory temperature environment by enclosing the HYPER2J in a splash guard. Moreover, the air temperature and airflow are strictly controlled to form a constant temperature chamber in which the machine temperature distribution is kept uniform. This is Makino's Thermal Chamber in which the machine controls its overall temperature to 23¡±0.5¡ in a factory environment where the ambient temperature ranges from 20¡- 26¡C. As a result, this feature also helps to reduce capital investment in expensive factory air-conditioning equipment.

Company profile

Hard Milling Solutions specializes in only doing high-performance machining of hardened steel, as the name would imply. "A lot of people say they're hard milling, but we really are hard milling every single day," says Greenwald. "Most of the metal we cut starts in the high 50s Rockwell C-scale and goes well into the 60s. We're doing mostly D2 and H13 and S7 that runs from 50-64 HRc. "Makino machines are definitely built for this. When we get production mold work in for H13 and S7, that isn't even hard milling to us anymore. That's like butter! The other guys that aren't used to milling it are worried about it though, but that's our gravy work. Cutting harder steel requires planning for conditions like constant chip load and a very rigid environment, and the V-series machines are great with this."

High-Speed Milling Flows Through Veins of Automotive Tool Supplier

Time Is On Their Side

High-Performance Hard Milling Succeeding By Doing It The Hard Way

Talk about doing things the hard way. Corey Greenwald is an engineer by training. It wasn't until six years ago, when his former company entered into hard milling, that he even ran a machine. He says it was one of the best things to happen to him in his career. But, as time passed he was ready for a new challenge in his career. Greenwald saw a lot of potential in high-performance machining, and began to look for a new role that would allow him to pursue this. As fate would have it, Craig Sizemore, an experienced EDM operator and specialty shop owner for years, was also thinking about getting into hard milling. So, the two partnered and in August of 2004, Hard Milling Solutions Inc. (HMS) was started in Shelby Township, Michigan. Today, this two-man shop owns two Makino V56 machining centers, and has already purchased a

HMS saves its customers lots of time. "We are a small operation, just myself and another operator, but we pride ourselves on our turnaround time. In the past, shops would typically take a block, rough it down to anywhere from 0.1000 to 0.0200 inches (≒2.5mm to 0.5mm)." Then they'd send it out to be heat-treated, bring it back, have to square up the block again and then finish the cuts. "After that, they usually have to put some time in on the bench to get the finish they need. That's a lot of setups and a lot of time. We're able to eliminate most of these steps. Customers are blown away by the finish we get straight from the machine." In addition to saving customers time, HMS is saving its customers money. "There's some wire EDM work that's getting replaced by hard milling and a lot of jig grinding that's getting replaced," Greenwald says in his old position, even after jig grinding, he was typically only getting a 25-28 RMS (0.65-0.7Ra) finish. "Off the V56 doing hard milling we're getting 10-12 RMS (0.25-0.3Ra) surface finish every single time. That's incredible."

Hi-Tech Mold & Engineering in Rochester Hills, Michigan, is a family owned and operated company which was founded in 1982. Recently Hi-Tech replaced two vertical machining centers with the SNC64 and reaped immediate benefits, according to Dennis Seefried, technology application manager for Hi-Tech Mold. The machine increased Hi-Tech's graphite electrode productivity by 100 percent and improved cycle time by as much as 50 percent within a few months. The equipment upgrade is an example of how Hi-Tech Mold & Engineering constantly searches for ways to increase its long-term productivity and demonstrated just how much Makino could help drive out costs. "Every minute counts on a machine," Schulte says. "With the challenges that we face today in the industry, we have to skin the cat more efficiently than in the past. The only way we can do that is to get the full utilization out of our machines, 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

A Bench Hand's Worst Nightmare

Hi-Tech mold also installed the MCC2013 into its operations. "We're able to achieve higher accuracy on our finish," Schulte says. "Our blendouts from one size cutter to another have proved to be exceptional. It is to a point where we don't really have to do any hand grinding, but can go right to a finish

polishing process."As the MCC2013 is becoming a dream come true to Hi-Tech's bottom line, the company's benching department is concentrating more time on tools produced on other machines. "It's been mentioned to me that the MCC2013 is the bench hand's worst nightmare," He says. "The reason is that it reduces the time usually needed for benching and polishing, allowing us to re-deploy valuable resources." Hi-Tech Mold's bench time also has decreased approximately 30 percent on molds milled by the MCC2013, Seefried says. He figures that the company saves on labor costs per project because of the reduced time in machining and benching. "After only a few months of having the MCC2013 operating, we've seen reduced cycle time, increased accuracy and shorter bench times," Seefried says. Ò The machine's versatility is further demonstrated by its ability to handle numerous stages of the mold manufacturing process, which usually requires more than one machine. " He says that the MCC2013 can handle rough milling, as well as semi and finish cuts. It is able to perform fine detail work because of the machine's accuracy and high-speed spindle. "The biggest benefit in buying a Makino machine is the spindle technology that they offer," Schulte says. "They put a lot into R&D and have a lot of people making the effort to come up with a better machine and are not satisfied with remaining stagnant. Makino strives to be the front runner in machine design, and I find that to be true with their products.Ò He says, "There's a price to pay for new technology. But we have to weigh it out and really make the smart judgment calls on what we are purchasing. I feel the MCC2013 was a good investment."

Modern plastics processed by HTP in Austria are often equal or superior to materials such as metal or glass in terms of quality and flexibility as long as the processing is stable. Injection moulding and precision injection moulding products are a core business segment for the HTP group. In order to have as much control as possible over quality, the precision moulds for the injection moulding are manufactured at the company's own facility. For MAKINO this high-tech company is a made-to-measure customer: Out of the three basic technologies that are offered in tool and mould construction HTP uses as many as three at its Neudšrfl location: high-speed milling (V33,V56) of highly tempered and hardened steel, several sinker EDM (size EDNC30 to EDNC85) and the high-speed milling of graphite (SNC64) and copper electrodes. Erich Schiebendrein says that in 1990 they were looking for a modern EDM machine with an automatic change of electrodes, easy programming and high

process safety. That was there first EDNC 32 and it is still running.When Makino asks, "What do you value in working with Makino?" Schiebendrein puts it in a couple of key words, "Technological leadership, competence, precise machining and also the excellent advice. When we wanted to expand our capacities in 2000, Makino showed us various reference facilities where unmanned EDM cells are in operation. The V33 came out on the market at the same time and very quickly impressed me at a trade fair presentation. We purchased it together with the corresponding EDM cell in order to produce copper electrodes and to mill all hardened materials. Today we cut cores with a diameter of 0.123 mm from hardened steel, for example." He also says, "We strive to manufacture our products in an economical way and are thus looking for reliable machines with top performance. Makino supports us in this. Let me give you an example: there are 8760 hours in a year and out of this the EDM cell runs for a good 5500 hours this worked out from the start.ÒWhen Makino asks their future plans, Schiebendrein says, ÒWe are heading towards miniaturization, which means more filigree structures. We'll be needing more precision machines for this."

Our goals are to be the best partner of manufacturersand to raise the position of mold makers in the industry.

Mr. Yukihide Matsuno

Mr. Winter, Head of tool construction (left) and Mr. Lang (Head of Development) are proud of these examples of their broad expertise.

Previously, it was said that the die & mold industry was largely unaffected by hard times. Yet, even die & mold makers are now being compelled to implement new business innovations in order to survive. Against this backdrop, Matsuno Mold Co., Ltd. has been expanding its business since its president, Yukihide Matsuno, took office and began instituting his unique business philosophy. The company makes precision plastic molds under its motto of being "the best partner of manufacturers." In order to restructure the mold business from the ground up, President Matsuno took the step of making the financial details transparent to the employees. The purpose was to gain their understanding of how tough the mold business was. He also took the same approach with his customers. "When we make an estimate, we show the customer the details of our procurement costs and machining costs. It might be rude of me to say so, but the purchasing managers of molds at plastic

parts makers used to present us with a price without knowing the actual cost of molds. We have had rather fierce arguments with customers in the past, but our customers now definitely understand our way of doing business. The point is to get customers clearly to understand how much it costs to produce molds." That is plainly evident by looking at the accuracy, cost and delivery lead times of Matsuno Mold's products. What is more, taking orders for molds as components involves an unfathomable degree of responsibility that can only be understood by a company engaged in such work. Matsuno Mold operates multiple machine tools, mainly Makino products, and CAD/CAM systems efficiently in its singlehanded production operations for various sizes of plastic molds and dual-color molds. Its molds are used to produce the cases for mobile phones and digital cameras and parts for medical instruments, car audio systems and notebook PCs, among other products. Its Makino machines include A55, V55 and HYPER5 machining centers, AEVA-74 milling machines, U53K wire EDM machines and EDNC43 sinker EDM machines. The company's reason for specifically selecting Makino machines is that the production of superior molds necessarily requires high-performance machines capable of handling all sorts of machining jobs in the process of manufacturing diverse molds with outstanding accuracy.The Makino Machine makes that possible.
