A new indexable carbide hob concept offers a cost-efficient alternative to solid HSS hobs. Replacing solid tools with indexable tooling significantly reduces the related maintenance effort. The ease of use and high cutting data capacity of the new hob offer tangible productivity benefits.
Cutting tools and expertise from Sandvik Coromant help Don Schumacher Racing stay ahead. An initial focus on cylinder head production led to a full process improvement, and resulted in improved part quality, reduced setup time, cycle time, and tool costs. The two organizations have been working together ever since, with a relationship that continues to [...]
In the fast-paced, rapidly growing energy and transportation industries, gear components are front and center. In many applications, they’re the most important, expensive and time-consuming parts to machine; and with tightening technical specifications and increasing production demands, it’s crucial that gear manufacturers in all industries optimize their operations. The industry right now, fortunately, is booming.
In micromachining, the parts may be small, but the tooling and machining options are wide open. And with all of the challenges that come with micromachining — tight tolerances, stringent quality demands, hard-to-machine materials — choosing the right methods is critical.
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.
To position itself in China’s rapidly expanding high-speed rail sector, Germany’s Voith Turbo has built what it says is the world’s most flexible factory and has been driving development of pioneering technologies for gear manufacturing with the help of Sandvik Coromant tooling.
The new series that introduces the general public to real-life manufacturing marvels, is back with another installment of The Edge Factor Show. The world premier of the new episode will be launched at the Interactive Manufacturing Experience (imX), at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 1 p.m.
At Sandvik Coromant, we understand that manufacturing has inherent costs to both the manufacturer and the environment. For this reason, we have implemented services that reduce our environmental impact and increase manufacturers’ productivity. The Sandvik Coromant Recycling Concept (CRC) offers an easy way to recycle solid carbide inserts and round tools while allowing manufacturers to earn extra money in the process.
Carbon fiber-based composite materials are expected to play a key role in the search for lighter cars, despite huge challenges in production line manufacturing.
Sandvik Coromant will sponsor the number 11 car at the upcoming NASCAR® Nationwide® Series STP 300 race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill. on June 4, 2011. The Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota will be driven by Brian Scott.
