Increase utilization and throughput. Lower cycle times and labor content.
Improve part consistency and quality while remaining flexible for the future.
To compete where it matters most, manufacturers must continually look for ways to reduce costs and increase throughput while enhancing the quality of the parts they produce. They are the fundamentals of a solid ROI. To ensure that your company has the ability to adapt quickly to a continually shifting marketplace and still enjoy solid returns, no other manufacturing process gets you there as surely as automation. And no other company offers you the experience in machining automation solutions as Makino.
Since the mid-1990s, Makino has developed automated solutions for manufacturers around the world. Today no one is better positioned to provide you with the equipment, skills and resources for integrating the automated systems that can keep you ahead of the rapidly evolving global marketplace.
Our extensive automation and integration experience, coupled with our production machining solutions and applications engineering support, make Makino the only company you need for an effective automated production system solution.
What automation experience brings to the shop floor
For many manufacturers, the process of automation and the steps needed to achieve its real benefits can seem daunting. That’s where the experience of Makino makes the biggest difference. Makino Engineering Services can help with everything from a simple cell consisting of a single machine and a robot loader to large systems composed of Makino machining centers, parts conveyors, robot and gantry loaders, automated assembly and inspection equipment, parts washers, part marking and more.
The benefits of automation solutions
Automated cells reduce the cost of machining a part in ways that reach beyond one particular machining application.
Makino’s automated systems deliver these benefits:
• Higher utilization rate of machining
• Higher throughput
• Reduction in labor content
• Process consistency associated with automated part load
• Flexibility to redeploy for future production needs
The role of Makino
Makino automation solutions coordinate all operator controls, providing a common human-machine interface platform and nomenclature. As part of a Makino integrated services solution, the completed system guarantees a tightly integrated manufacturing environment with startup/shutdown procedures, alarm recovery, mechanical interface and part tracking.
And while the solution is automated, the service couldn’t be more personal. As with all Makino solutions, you’ll be provided with a single source of dedicated project management and site coordination, backed by Makino staff, including mechanical and control engineers. It’s what makes automation from Makino a complete solution.
