Makino-exclusive ADVANTiGE™ technology helps improve titanium productivity and dramatically increases tool life over conventional titanium machining.
ADVANTiGE solves common titanium issues like low metal-removal rates and limited tool life with a high-pressure, high-flow coolant system, vibration damping system, and rigid machine and spindle construction.
Autonomic Spindle Technology uses spindle sensors to measure displacement caused by excessive cutting forces. Processing is instantly adapted, protecting both the spindle part and tooling.
A high-pressure, high-flow coolant system delivers large volumes of coolant directly to the cutting zone for faster chip evacuation, particularly with multi-flute tools. The coolant system includes overhead shower, spindle nozzle and through-spindle coolant for improved cooling, lubrication and chip evacuation.
The vibration damping system adjusts frictional forces based on low-frequency vibration sensing, avoiding chatter and cutter damage from structure resonance in real time. Vibration suppression enables deeper cuts, higher metal-removal rates and reduced tool wear.
The rigid construction of ADVANTiGE-enhanced machinery provides a solid, reliable platform for all other technologies, further suppressing vibration for reduced tool chipping and improved metal-removal rates.
