Sandvik Coromant joins forces with Microsoft to shape the future of manufacturing

 

Sandvik Coromant is collaborating with Microsoft to drive forward the development and digitalization of
the manufacturing industry and accelerate the internal digitalization network for Sandvik Coromant.
Combining Sandvik Coromant's expertise in machining with solutions from Microsoft, the collaboration
will seek to link up parts of the production chain to create solutions for the next generation of
manufacturing.
​Sandvik Coromant's CoroPlus®, offering is based on Microsoft Azure IoT and Dynamics 365 Field Service. Among other things, the offering connects people, machines, tools and data on a single platform to offer Sandvik Coromant's customers a better basis for decision making, and provides an overview of the various developments in the manufacturing process. This can enable savings, for example, by reducing machine downtimes.​

"We see this collaboration with Microsoft as key to the success of our digital strategy. We have a historic relationship with them and look forward to continuing our journey, creating value by working together to develop and implement solutions for the manufacturing industry to guarantee efficiency, sustainability and growth. explained Nadine Crauwels, President of Sandvik Coromant.

One unique aspect of Sandvik Coromant's CoroPlus® offering is that data is not only gathered at machine level to adjust equipment, notify technicians about maintenance requirements and warn managers about potential problems. Data is also gathered at tool level, which means that the customer's industrial tool becomes "smart" and can be adapted and adjusted at any time for efficient use and to prevent production stoppages.

The collaboration with Microsoft adopts an integrated approach to digitizing the data, expertise and experience used on a daily basis by Sandvik Coromant to guide their customers, and will serve as an additional tool to facilitate streamlining of production​.

"Sandvik Coromant is a world leader in machining and has a track record of driving development in the industrial sector both in Sweden and internationally. It is incredibly inspiring that they have chosen to take the next step of the journey with us, and this is a really striking example of how digitalization can create new opportunities for the company to develop and become even better at what it does,” states Hélène Barnekow, CEO of Microsoft Sweden.
