Cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has unveiled a new range of CoroTurn® Prime multi-task and axial type tool holders to help machine shops implement the new PrimeTurning™ methodology, which enables turning in all directions. The introductions allow users to maximise the benefits of PrimeTurning on multi-task turn-mill centres and vertical turning lathes (VTLs). Complementing the company’s existing radial tool holders, Sandvik Coromant now has a complete offer for PrimeTurning operations.
In a move designed to greatly improve efficiency and quality in CAM operations, CoroPlus® ToolLibrary and PrimeTurning™ method from Sandvik Coromant have been integrated in Mastercam® 2018. The CoroPlus suite of connected solutions provided by Sandvik Coromant facilitates digital machining and the transition of the manufacturing industry into Industry 4.0. Mastercam is the first CAM software to integrate solutions for both CoroPlus ToolLibrary and PrimeTurning technologies.
