Makino Hosts Global Titanium Day May 20th


Mason, Ohio – May 2010 – Makino will be hosting the Global Titanium Day on Thursday, May 20th at its Mason, Ohio Global Titanium R&D Center. During the event, Makino will unveil their latest titanium machining technology, ADVANTiGETM capable of four times the productivity and double the tool life of conventional titanium machining. By reducing manufacturers' cost to produce titanium parts, Makino is set to change the way manufacturers think about titanium machining.

The event will feature several presentations from Makino's designers and application engineers that will detail Makino's new titanium machining technology, ADVANTiGE. This includes an in-depth review of a new advanced spindle technology that increases cutting stability, an advanced coolant delivery system, a vibration dampening system, and machine rigidity advancements.

Makino will demonstrate the ADVANTiGE on the Makino T4, a 5-axis horizontal machining center designed specifically for large titanium aerospace applications. Additional titanium machining demonstrations will be performed on a Makino a81M horizontal machining center, D500 5-axis vertical machining center, DUO43 wire EDM, and EDGE3 Ram EDM equipped with Makino’s patented Titanium Booster technology.

Additional guest presentations from Michael Metz, President of VSMPO, and Chris Perryman, General Manager of ATI Aerospace, will cover current Titanium industry forecasts and market trends.
