The Tübingen-based premium-tool manufacturer is now expanding its thread milling cutter range. Three new thread milling cutter inserts with smaller corner radii enhance the versatility of the existing tool bodies; two new bodies now allow M56 and M64 coarse-pitch threads to be cut. These new additions transform the thread milling cutter family from one that was focused primarily on productivity to a family that can now be used universally.
In order to overcome the challenges of chip formation and evacuation when drilling non-ferrous metals, cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has unveiled its CoroDrill® 880 CVD diamond-coated insert grades, GCN124 and GCN134. The super-hard properties of the diamond coating provide long tool life and combine with innovative chip breaker and geometry designs to guarantee superior performance when drilling materials such as aluminium.
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.
