A system engineer is the final link in a long chain of automated projects that bring life to a machine.
A machining centre without software is only a block of steel with no functions or movements. Such a machine is dead. Without software it cannot even be used. A system engineer is the person who brings the machine to live.
The focus of System Engineering at Makino is on meeting customers’ requirements for their new system. The new system in this case is a machining centre or a completely automated system. System engineers are also required to design and write programs, always with the focus on maximising productivity, minimising breakdowns and observing safety regulations.
Besides programming skills and logical thinking, the main core skills required of system engineers are in the fields of information security, integration, and data security. The skills that differentiate true professionals are in mathematics, application development and systems software. Excellent communication and personal skills are essential, while outstanding conflict resolution, analytical, and decision-making skills are just as vital.
Why system engineers are so important

The software is always the product of Makino know-how and can convince potential and existing Makino customers to purchase Makino machines with a unique and well-running system.
