Tooling solutions for machining of shafts and splines
Shaft components come in many different shapes and forms, and their main purpose is to transport power.
The slender shafts require rigid clamping and light-cutting tools to avoid vibration. As with gear wheels, a careful preparation for the hardened stage is a success factor.
Soft turning and gear milling are performed before the case hardening process, where the challenge often is to acquire close dimensional tolerances. A careful preparation for the hardened stage gives a relatively straight-forward hard part turning operation. In hard part turning, predictable machining and good surface finishing is essential. All this goes together with cost-effectiveness.
Besides our extensive offer, Sandvik Coromant also have dedicated products and engineered solutions that fully support overtaking the challenges manufacturing these components presents.
