The Makino U3 H.E.A.T. (High Energy Applied Technology) configuration contains enhancements to the flushing and filtration system that dramatically increase cutting speed, especially in poor flush applications, while maintaining part straightness and accuracy. The U3 H.E.A.T. harnesses the raw horse power from its larger capacity independent dual flushing pumps to deliver higher pressure and volume of flushing to machining to reduce Rough Cut cycle time. The machine is also standard with a larger capacity (4) filter filtration system to accommodate the higher capacity flushing capability.
The U3 H.E.A.T. utilizes a Split-V Wire Guide system that requires less maintenance and last 34 times longer than traditional Round Wire Guides. Machine maintenance and consumable wear items are also reduced when compared to traditional designs, which provides greater productivity while reducing operational costs. The (4) di-electric filters are housed in a non-submerged cabinet with an integrated Filter Air-Purge function that evacuates the water from the filters before exchanging, reducing weight of the spent filter and preventing the traditional dirty, wet slip hazards that are normally encountered with filter replacement.
