Let Makino’s project managers help you get the most out of your Makino machines, automation and third-party equipment.

Keeping your key resources—your best people—engaged in the areas of your operations where they are most effective is one of your biggest responsibilities and a fundamental part of ensuring peak ROI on every job. That’s where Makino Integration Services can have a major impact on your operations and your outcomes. As your prime contractor, Makino helps you manage your time and resources to ensure the smoothest, most efficient installation of any multi-vendor project.

We understand what matters. As a single source, Makino Integration Services provides fast resolution of engineering issues. As a company with extensive process and operational experience in engineering services, Makino delivers the best solution—with no compromises.

 

Makino Integration Services: A full-service resource

Makino Engineering Services provides complete integration of machining technologies, automation, third-party equipment, application engineering, fixture design, on-time delivery, onsite installation, successful test runs, in-shop training, online training and post-production support.

Our Engineering Services staff understands machine tools from the inside out, including third-party tool measurement, part measurement, vision systems, pallet systems, form control, remote machining and machine tending. Integrating these automation materials to their full potential, based on a shop's unique demands, can greatly increase overall efficiency.

 

Machine Tool Integration Services

A successful integration of a Makino machine into your manufacturing environment requires advanced expertise in automated material load/unload, customizing machine operations and third-party equipment. Makino Integration Services provides full automation engineering services, including cell controller programming, robot reach services, robot end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) gripper design, robot programming, conveyor designs, third-party technical management and human management interface (HMI) development.

As part of the service, a Makino cell controller performs a series of automated functions, including showing an overview of the cell status, control robot start/stop and access to robot work area, gauge cycle counters, cell runout, part-type selection and part tracking.

Every integration solution provided by Makino Engineering Services encompasses each step of the project, from start to finish, and beyond. To achieve this goal, Makino divides these steps into four components:

Project Management
A single point of contact throughout the project, your Makino project manager is the one person you can always count on to answer questions and deliver solutions. The project manager oversees third-party vendors, coordinates activities between all parties (Makino, vendors and you), tracks and reports the project’s schedule, and manages project changes.

Project Engineering
Mechanical, controls and software include these elements:

• Specification/design reviews
• Drawing approvals
• Mechanical engineering
• Robot EOAT design
• Layout design
• Control engineering
• Design
• Programming
• System runoff support at Makino and at your site
• Installation/startup support
• Final documentation

 

Site Supervision
Monitoring of project progress to ensure smooth processes and efficient operation.

Post-Installation Support
Follow-up reporting, analysis and resolution of issues to ensure installations meet targeted goals.
