Sleek wings and powerful engines are familiar images of flight. An aircraft’s landing gear, however, is just as essential for successful air travel. A fully loaded, double-deck, 800-passenger Airbus A380 jetliner weighs about 1.3 million lbs. Aloft, those 650 tons are supported by the magic of aerodynamic lift. But movement on the ground, including takeoff [...]
There are many ways to thread a component. Only the correct selection of tool and application method will bring the best results. Whether thread milling or thread turning, Sandvik Coromant has the application and tooling expertise to achieve top threading performance.
Companies in the manufacturing industry must evolve the very nature of their operations; partnerships hold the key to achieving success. Today, more than ever, machine tool builders and cutting tool manufacturers must work together to develop complementary technologies.
The medical implant industry requires that manufacturing processes are carried out to high tolerances and with precision within a volume production environment. Biocompatible implants use materials that are challenging to machine, and this requires considerable knowledge of the machining of small components. Sandvik Coromant has made key investments in developing solutions that meet the needs of this growing market.
The unique new concept iLock interface improves stability for various cutting tool concepts and brings new levels of security, longer tool life and higher productivity. Now, with the availability of smaller inserts in the CoroThread 266 program, the advantages of new consistency levels will be available throughout thread turning.
In thread turning, micro-movements of the indexable insert are a common cause of disruptions. Prematurely shortened tool lives, inconsistent performance and unsatisfactory results can often be traced back to the cutting edge having moved very slightly during machining. CoroThread 266 maintains the exact position of the insert in the tool holder and cutter seat.
Reduce your number of passes and guarantee and ultra-stable, accurate and repeatable process time after time. CoroThread 266 is a family of tools for all machining sectors, designed to improve accuracy and repeatability in high-precision threading applications.
