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.
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.
Every wind turbine gearbox incorporates at least two ring gears, and, at first glance, they may not appear that complicated of a part.
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.
Borgo San Dalmazzo, Italy. It was a huge challenge for a small precision machining company, but Costruzioni e Lavorazioni di Precisione dared to take on an order to manufacture a massive component for a nuclear reactor. “Don’t sell the bear’s skin before you have caught the bear” is a popular proverb in the province of [...]
Unique insert geometries and grades from Sandvik Coromant are supporting the growth of hard part machining as a highly effective alternative to grinding for finishing operations on hardened components.
Turning lathes with Sandvik Coromant CDI turrets offer more stable machining and shorter tool holder projection, resulting in longer tool capabilities, higher cutting performance, better workpiece surface, longer cutting tool life and more cutting tool length.
