Magna Machine had a contract from an oil and gas company to manufacture fluid end blocks from a solid block of steel the size of an office desk. The job involved boring holes in the steel that were 3.5 inches in diameter on the outside but expanded to five inches in diameter on the inside, which resulted in a lot of chatter. The tooling solution from Sandvik Coromant saved Magna an estimated 185 hours of machine time and $40,000 in expenses.
Without the right application techniques, even the best tools can fall short of their potential. Sandvik Coromant can provide you with the latest developments in materials, coatings, and tooling technologies.
