Makino now equips machines with Punch Tap cycle for time-saving purposes in thread machining.
The Japanese machine manufacturer Makino now delivers their L and J series machine tools with the Punch Tap cycle as standard. This cycle enables their customers to produce threads in a time-saving manner. A YouTube video demonstrates the amount of time savings. In this example M6 threads are cold-formed in cast aluminium on a Makino L2 machining centre using EMUGE Punch Tap tools.
