The general service inspection gives you an overview of the current status of your technical equipment.Makino provides you with expert advice and one of our Service Technicians will check all the production-relevant components of your machining centre. Then you receive a detailed report, a checklist of any failures and recommendations for spare parts. All this brings you a decisive additional benefit: This general service inspection is a means of actively maintaining the value of your Makino machining centre or EDM!
Our geometry check, which is carried out within a day, is seen as a good investment by Makino customers. For machining centres the geometry check includes a levelling check, measuring the perpendicularity of all the travel axes against each other, and measuring the concentricity of the milling spindle and its perpendicularity to the mounting planes. The indexing accuracy of the B-axis to the main spindle is also checked. The geometry check for EDMs includes a levelling check, measuring the perpendicularity of all the travel axes against each other, and measuring the cutting heads or the C-axis of sinker EDMs.
Increase positioning accuracy: Debugging and adjustment of incorrect settingsThe circularity test is used, among other things, to check the positioning accuracy of your CNC machine.For this test Makino uses a measuring instrument that complies with the highest quality standards in measuring the accuracy of the X and Y travel axes. The dynamic condition of the detailed axes is determined by means of circular interpolation. The various contour deviations indicate any possible misadjustments. Any excessive backlash of the axes caused by wear will be immediately apparent. Then you receive a report detailing specified recommendations for further actions. The measures required to improve machine accuracy will be implemented by our Makino Service personnel after consultation with you.
Leak test on Makino milling spindles: Avoid premature wear and leaks
Intensive use of your Makino machine will cause wear on various assemblies. The result may be consequential damage or even the destruction of key machine components, all of which may initially remain unnoticed. A coolant leak, for example, requires major repair or replacement of production-relevant components, which naturally results in substantial machine downtime.
An annual leak test of your main spindle checks if the rotary feed-through for the outer coolant is leak-tight, and performs a load test on the inner coolant supply. Artificial pressure is applied over a certain period of time to quickly identify any spots that are leaking. If pressure fluctuations or a significant loss of pressure occurs during the test, the leak tightness of the main spindle assembly must be reinstated. Thus, a comparably small measure such as replacing the coolant rotary feed-through quite easily helps to avoid major damage. By using original Makino spare parts you are acting in a quality-conscious, preventive way!
