The answer is very simple. Our R&D team designs the machines starting from the component to be produced. In order to produce this part in the optimal way, we study the process requirements. Do we need a high-torque or high-power spindle? Should we focus on vibration dampening, increasing the rigidity or go for a compromise between both requirements? Do we need a small spindle to access the most complicate features of the parts or can we have a bigger spindle?
This very first choice in designing a machine is the critical step that will determine the future performance of the machine. Selecting from a catalogue of spindles will limit our choices, the future of the machine, and how we design the machine.
While other manufacturers design the machine around the spindle, Makino designs the machine around the part, modifying the structure to meet the component requirements.
