General Die Casters Adds Makino A40 Horizontal Machining Center to Twinsburg, Ohio Facility

Makino A40 Horizontal machining center

Recently, we added a Makino A40 Horizontal Machining Center to our operation. Implementing a horizontal CNC to our arsenal enables us to run larger castings and multi-cavity fixtures of high volume parts. 

The Makino A40, a first-of-its-kind horizontal machining center is purpose-designed and built for non-ferrous die casting production.

The machine has 23” X 24” working area for larger castings or a large number of smaller parts.

It uses Makino’s intelligent ROI design to be one of the fastest horizontal machining centers for aluminum castings.

  • The spindle accelerates to 12,000 rpm in 0.5 seconds.
  • Completes tapping operations with the 6,000 RPM Rigid tapping synchronization speed.
  • Linear axis movement 18% faster than competitors.

We are excited to add new technology to our operation that allows General Die Casters to produce high volume machined castings at a competitive price.
