Another feature is low operating costs, reduced maintenance, as well as what Makino claims is the lowest wire consumption in the EDM industry. "H.E.A.T." technology (High Energy Applied Technology) and the newly developed Hyper-Cut guarantee the fastest machining possible while maintaining accuracy and desired surface finish.
