Dampened adapters with a standard facemill/shellmill mount on the front or tool side, and a Coromant Capto coupling on the back or spindle side, can be applied in long-reach milling operations. Through increased cutting data, productivity can be increased by as much as 500%.
Has this ever happened to you? You have been running a process for a period of time and are very confident in its security. All of a sudden, you receive a batch of castings and your 100 components per edge dropped to 75 components per edge and the insert edge is breaking. What can you do to optimize your process in the short term?
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.
WMX is the new generation of wiper inserts that can achieve the required surface finish much faster than inserts with a conventional nose radius. The main radius with multiple complimentary radii has been designed as part of a new chipbreaking geometry that has provided the insert with a much larger feed range.
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 US Department of Energy estimates that national electricity consumption will increase by approximately 30% by the year 2030. This drives today’s orders for a great number of gas and steam turbines for carbon and nuclear-based electricity plants, as well as specific components for renewable energy plants based on wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.
PVD coatings increase the life and productivity of production tools, saving companies billions of dollars each year.
A revolutionary new technology makes it possible to manufacture bevel gears faster and more simply than with conventional methods.
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.
The growing demand for clean and more efficient electric power creates a need for new gas and steam turbines with components manufactured in more high-alloyed and difficult-to-machine materials.
