The right choice for the best price.

“I never thought we could afford a Makino.” – Sebaastian Garst, Manufacturing Manager, MiniFAB, Scoresby, Victoria, Australia.

MiniFAB is a microengineering and microfluidic diagnosis company. They considered every option before deciding on the right vertical machining center. They selected a new Makino F3. MiniFAB can now manufacture components to accuracies they were never able to before.

“When we were introduced to the F3, we were initially impressed with the 30,000 RPM spindle speeds, accuracy and of course the price. We never thought we could afford a Makino; normally a machine with that kind of capability would be 2 to 3 times the price we paid – so we are very happy with how it’s turned out. Having the F3 machine now means we are a viable alternative in Australia for companies who want to stay under the radar. Many of our US customers work with us because of where we are, and they essentially get a 24-hour production line with both Northern and Southern hemisphere facilities. We weren’t initially aware of Makino which offered us a cost-effective alternative for what we needed – but we’re glad we found it.”
