The U6 is an extremely competitive machine in the market. What’s more, the set of options on this machine also make it highly customisable to meet specific customer needs:
- Crystal unit for parts of over 100 mm width
- U3i and U6i for higher precision
- Extreme option for faster roughing capabilities
But the capablities of the standard machine should never be forgotten, either. In the photo opposite you can see the surface roughness after sequential cuts using the U6.
Starting from an Ra of 3.14 micron, you can go up to 0.12 micron by using crystal technology. These values, normally only available from dedicated high-precision machines, can be achieved with Makino's U series entry-level machines.
