Cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant is introducing a dedicated turning insert optimised for stainless steel materials that offers increased productivity, longer tool life and higher machine utilisation. GC2220 will prove to be a major benefit to pump and valve manufacturers, as well as general engineering shops, particularly those serving sectors such as aerospace, automotive and oil and gas.
Optimized roughing can be highly effective for machining part features such as pockets with challenging corners as well as any straight walls that require long axial depths of cuts. In fact, this strategy enables the users to machine pockets three to four times faster than conventional methods while also dramatically extending the life of the…
When CAD/CAM programmers and machinists search for the right cutting tools and tool holders, the process starts in reverse. They look for tools first, then see the tool’s specifications and decide if it’s right for the job. But what if we turned this process around? Why can’t the user specify the job, and then get recommendations from tool manufacturers?
Cutting tool and tooling systems specialist Sandvik Coromant has made its high performance steel milling grade, GC1130, available for use with CoroMill® QD and CoroMill 331 groove milling cutters. GC1130, which is the latest Zertivo™ grade from Sandvik Coromant, delivers high metal removal rates and secure performance levels in both wet and dry machining operations.
