Makino (Makino Milling Machine Company) developed Japan’s first numerically controlled (NC) milling machine in 1958 By Tsunezo Makino. It was established on May 1, 1937, and by 1966 it established Japan’s first machining center 1966. It was headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Makino introduced game-changing solutions for performance. The company was first known as Makino Iron Works. It began as a small machine shop in 1930, and the North American branch of Makino was formed through the 1981 merger of the R. K. LeBlond Machine Tool Company of Cincinnati and the Makino Milling Machine Company of Japan. The result from the merger was the formation of what was then called “LeBlond Makino Machine Tool Company”. Up until now, the Makino company is still led by the Makino Family.
The Makino company developed the first drop-tank wire EDM (Electrical discharge machining) in 1994 and HQSF ((High-Quality Surface Finish) technology with patented USC additive in 1996, it increased the ability to finish parts without hand polishing when using a ram EDM. In 1984, the company introduced the first commercial high-speed spindle for milling, and in 1990 Makino introduced Geometric Intelligence, the first servo-control software tailored to high-speed machining and Flush fine machining (a method for cutting hardened materials).
Makino Milling Machine Co. Ltd. now engages in the manufacturing, sales, and service of machine tools. Its products include vertical machining centers,horizontal machining centers, sinker and wire electrical discharge machines, tool grinding machines cutters, NC milling machines, CAD/CAM systems FMS, and tool grinding machines. The company provides its advanced machining technology to global customers from service centers and machining facilities located around the world.
Makino produces machines that have higher quality parts with less waste and repair. The company uses the latest innovations to drive efficiency, reducing costs with an expertly designed system. The company also gets expert help for every stage of operations for its engineering services. The next-generation design delivers higher spindle power and advanced motion controls while training full interchangeability with existing systems in Asia.
Makino has an already more than 80-year history of machine tool making and provides satisfactory service for its consumers. Makino is not just focused on traditional machine tools, but it decided to have a revolution in the tool industry. A representative of the Japanese machine tool industry Tsunezo Makino visited India and promised the Indian Government to develop an NC machine in two years. To do what was promised he worked with a subsidiary of Fujitsu and developed with them to create the NC machine in Japan. This collaboration started 60 years ago and is still going strong to provide reliable, high-quality machines.
The stage of set up and operation is backed by highly skilled engineering, training, and repair professionals. As the industry leader in machinery design and digital innovation, Makino produces the world’s most accurate and highest quality metal-cutting and EDM machines such as horizontal machining centers, vertical machining centers, 5 axis machining centers, graphite machining centers, and wire and sinker EDMs.
Makino now is a multinational company in all over 41 countries around the world and is widely recognized as the most advanced machining center. With its over 80 years in the business. Makino is shaping the future through manufacturing machines and hiring experts to provide good quality services.
