Ceramic grades can be applied in a broad range of applications and materials; most often in high speed turning operations but also in grooving and milling operations. The specific properties of each ceramic grade enable high productivity, when applied correctly. Knowledge of when and how to use ceramic grades is important for success.
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.
Groove machining on wind power components requires versatile, rigid tools for features on rings and shafts. The more recent developments in the area of parting and grooving tooling have targeted the heavy-duty end of machining, when added stability for longer reach is needed, a tougher cutting edge is necessary and when chip control is an issue.
The increasing demand for bone screws, implants and other microcomponents creates a need for new techniques that produce specific thread forms quickly and with high tolerances.
Modern steam and gas turbine components from high-performance alloys require dedicated tooling solutions and methods. Damped tools, dedicated geometries and grades as well as a high-precision coolant supply offer productive solutions.
Production of most parts made from hard or hardened materials, defined as those at or more than 45 HRc, required dedicated grinding equipment and processes.
CoroThread 266 is an innovative threading concept that utilizes iLock technology to improve insert indexability, accuracy, and eliminate insert movement during threading operations. CoroThread inserts have interlocking grooves for the most stable laydown threading system on the market.
CoroTurn HP uses high precision jet nozzles to direct coolant at pre-defined target areas in the cutting zone. Better heat control in the zone can lead to a 30% increase in surface speed or 50% increase in tool life in many difficult to machine materials.
Shorter Coromant Capto adapters with SL (serration lock) interface for use in turning centers. Save space in the turret and achieve higher productivity and problem-free machining.
QS holding system for sliding head machines can be combined with high precision coolant, significantly improving chip breaking and small part machining.
