Here's the place to learn about breaking news and what's making headlines.
The inherent modularity of three Sandvik Coromant tooling product families—Coromant Capto®, Coromant EH and CoroTurn® SL—can prove highly advantageous to manufacturers looking to tool up a single machine or an entire plant.In contrast to purchasing separate tools for each machine, component and feature, modular tooling solutions allow machine shops to build optimized tooling assemblies to suit all applications using just a small inventory of standard items.
Sandvik Coromant is now offering tooling dedicated to the challenging operation of machining valve seat pockets in oil and gas applications. Comprised of a combination of an elliptical Silent Tools™ adaptor and CoroTurn® SL cutting head, this solution is designed to overcome prevalent issues such as narrow flow bore diameters, vibration tendencies and long overhangs.
The new CoroMill® 316 generation of exchangeable-head milling cutters from Sandvik Coromant further expands the company’s established Solid Round Tools portfolio by bringing higher levels of versatility and productivity to machining operations in ISO P (steel) and ISO M (stainless steel) materials. Further benefits include high reliability in almost all applications along with enhanced tool life and a silent machining process.
Machine shops faced with identifying ways of achieving secure machining with long and predictable insert life in steel milling operations can turn to GC1130, an insert made with the Zertivo™, a unique production technology from Sandvik Coromant. GC1130 helps to overcome challenging machining conditions with a clean and intact edge, delivering high metal removal rates and performance levels in both wet and dry machining operations. The grade is offered as the first choice for shoulder milling cutters, CoroMill® 390 and CoroMill® 490 and chamfer cutter, CoroMill® 495.
Making headlines in science and manufacturing circles for its amazing properties, graphene is a remarkable new material with boundless possibilities. On a mission to discover who can realize the full potential of graphene, Sandvik Coromant has initiated a global competition for individuals to submit ideas of how the application of graphene could be utilized in a way that would revolutionize the modern household.
When material savings is a requirement due to machining expensive materials, large batch productions, or both, it is essential to use the thinnest insert width possible. CoroCut® QD dedicated parting off and deep grooving tools are now available in smaller insert widths with internal high-pressure coolant to help customers realize production efficiency.
For longitudinal and face turning, Sandvik Coromant introduces the new CoroTurn® 300 for higher component quality, increased handling efficiency and longer tool life in steel turning operations. Available immediately, the CoroTurn 300 features stable insert clamping, as well as eight-edged inserts for the high chip control, tool life and surface finish.
Sandvik Coromant strengthens its offering in Digital Manufacturing by the acquisition of the German company Prometec GmbH, based in Aachen.
CNC Software, Inc. and Sandvik Coromant have announced that they will be working together to integrate the Adveon™ Tool Library with Mastercam®. Adveon will help Mastercam users to further improve machining productivity and security, and save time during machine set-up. By reducing the engineer’s input, both consistency and quality of data are improved.
Sandvik Coromant has launched a new tap for use with cast iron. Designed to maximise machining productivity, CoroTap™ 100 – KM features the latest cutting edge technology and offers excellent results and process security.
Sandvik Coromant launches a new series of end mills designed to deliver high performance and security in side milling and pocketing operations.
CoroMill® 425 is an eight-edge finishing tool designed for face milling. It offers increased metal removal and long tool life for cast iron milling applications.
Sandvik Coromant has introduced two new grades for machining cast iron. GC3225 and GC3210 cover all cast iron turning operations for both grey and nodular cast iron materials.
Transmissions are typically mass produced, so component costs are a vital factor for success. With its CB7015 indexable insert, Sandvik Coromant offers a cost efficient time-saving tool for hard-part turning. The tool covers a wide range of applications and delivers optimal finish quality – while being highly suited for dry machining.
Sandvik Coromant has announced a new version of its comprehensive ‘Main Catalogue’ that is set to become an essential reference for engineers, operators and other production and manufacturing professionals. Split into three volumes - rotating tools, turning tools and spare parts - the new catalogues cover around 35,000 tools currently available from Sandvik Coromant.
