In this web cast, we look at the unique tooling solutions required to machine gas and steam turbine casings. Learn how to manage common problems associated with internal groove milling, large-hole rough and finish boring, and inner diameter groove finishing.
Coromant Capto® is widely used in turning centers with manual clamping via a CAM-shaft actuated clamp set. Quick changing of tools maximizes machine efficiency with an average of 25% more time for producing chips.
Because the cutting action of a drill always takes place inside the workpiece, chip control (formation and evacuation of chips) is crucial for process security. Sandvik Coromant is launching an entirely new generation of solid carbide drills to minimize the inevitable compromise between security and performance in high-end drilling.
October 1st sees the launch of three new styles of inserts for the CoroMill 316 exchangeable head milling system. The three new designs of end mills, each with 2 cutting edges, are perfect problem solvers with maximum strength and security, and extend the depth of cut for the CoroMill 316 range to 0.8 x Dc.
A crucial factor in machining economics is the amount of time the machine actually cuts chips. Studies have shown that the cutting time generally ranges between 20 and 40 percent of the total production time. Downtime takes up the rest: tool changes and setups, measurements and breakdowns, shift patterns and weekends. Minimizing all these factors improves productivity. Sandvik Coromant calls this concept Green Light Machining.
Trace the development, manufacturing and first competition test of a new design that could change the game for slope style riders forever. See the critical role Sandvik Coromant playing in the process of bringing that design from concept through completion.
It all started as a small machinery workshop in Hong Kong some 30 years ago. The LK Group used Sandvik Coromant’s Productivity Improvement Program and is today the world’s largest manufacturer of die casting machines.

With the new quick change clamping units from Sandvik Coromant you can maximize the amount of actual machining time on your machine. The clamping units utilize Sandvik Coromant’s quick change tooling system, Coromant Capto®, which has been proven to dramatically reduce downtime with setup and tool changing efficiency.
Gas turbines feature a set of discs, with spacers that create space between each pair of discs that carry the blades. This web cast showcases the best machining practices and solutions for spacer discs of gas turbines.
