Wilhelm Haglund medal given to developer behind vibration-dampened tooling
The Sandvik Coromant portfolio of automotive component manufacturing solutions offers a selection of tools and insert grades designed to optimize the machining of transmission shafts.
The new CoroMill® QD groove milling concept features internal coolant and dedicated insert geometries for milling with high process security.
Sandvik Coromant takes another step in the gear milling technology development by introducing the groundbreaking InvoMilling solution for flexible manufacturing of gears and splines on universal five-axes machining centers.
Cutting tool and tooling systems expert Sandvik Coromant has been honored by automotive giant Volvo Cars in the company’s Award of Excellence 2014. The efforts of Sandvik Coromant over the past year were rewarded in the Special Recognition category. Over 200 people saw the prize presented at a glittering awards ceremony on January 19, 2015 at Volvo Cars headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Machining slender components present numerous challenges including long chips, vibration, and deflection. As a result, tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant is introducing HP high-precision coolant to its range of CoroTurn® 107 cutting units to minimize the risk of insert breakages, chip jamming and machine stoppages.
Sandvik Coromant, a global leading supplier of cutting tools, tooling solutions and know-how to the metalworking industry, presents the innovative CoroMill® 5B90, a high-performance tool for finishing aluminum components. The state-of-the-art tool with an innovative cutting edge arrangement delivers excellent surface quality without burr formation and reduces cost-per-part by up to 30 percent. CoroMill 5B90 is ideally suited for automotive applications such as machining cylinder heads, gearboxes, valve blocks, and motor block crankshaft and deck faces.
Sandvik Coromant has updated its CoroCut® 1-2 system for rigid and rapid parting and grooving to feature spring clamp technology. This not only provides increased stability but eliminates the operator judgement required when using a torque wrench on conventional screw clamps.
On October 8, 2014, after two years of construction, Sandvik Coromant opened its new global meeting place in Sandviken, Sweden. The 4,500 square meter “Sandvik Coromant Center” is one of the world’s largest centers for productivity, application, machining and research in manufacturing. This is part of a $27 million investment that will also cover the opening of a new center in Langfang, Beijing, China.
Sandvik Coromant has announced that its CoroTurn® SL cutting heads now feature CoroTurn HP (high precision) nozzles that direct cutting fluid precisely where it is needed – at the exact interface between the tool and the workpiece. This innovation ensures CoroTurn SL users can be assured of reliable chip breaking, which facilitates both good chip evacuation and extended tool life in back-boring operations.
With new technological developments, emerging on the automotive horizon, manufacturers are faced with extremely high demands in terms of quality, security and productivity. The new Sandvik Coromant grades GC4315 and GC4325 with Inveio™ are designed to support the automotive industry with outstanding reliability and process security.
When the steam engine was first introduced in England in 1712, many shook their heads and argued that it was too expensive and a waste of time compared to hydropower. When the steam engine – now considered to be the invention that kicked off the first industrial revolution – proved to be more flexible and productive than hydropower, the skeptics were left behind. Of course, the old adage applied then as it does now: Adapt, or die.
The recently introduced CoroCut® QD concept for deep external grooving and parting off from Sandvik Coromant, now adds internal machining to the application range of these secure and reliable tools.
Sandvik Coromant is now launching a powerful deep hole machining concept for the STS system – CoroDrill® 808. Among its many features, this product is equipped with optimized pad design for good hole finish, unique edge preparation for increased chip breaking and a reinforced periphery insert corner for added security and reliability. Suitable for diameters from 15.60 to 65.00 mm (0.614−2.559 inch) and tolerance demands of IT 9, CoroDrill 808 is capable of producing perfect holes, regardless of the component material.
On March 3rd, CoroCut QD – the reliable system from Sandvik Coromant for deep grooves and parting off with long overhangs expands the offer of inserts and durable tools with over and under coolant. The system is supported with plug and play adaptors for easy handling and efficient coolant supply.
