A Q&A on High-Accuracy Wire Tension Gauges


Q: Is there a higher accuracy wire tension gauge available for my Makino wire EDM?

A: Yes. Makino offers an optional high precision wire tension gauge that can be purchased with the machine or through Makino’s Parts Department. This unit provides greater precision than the standard drag tension meter for machine maintenance when calibrating wire drive tensions. The high-precision wire tension gauge is very helpful when machining with small diameter wire sizes, and provides tension calibration from 100-3,000 grams, and also includes a thickness compensator for greater accuracy.
