Sandvik Coromant will showcase a number of its new gear tooling solutions and offers, ranging from roughing, semi-finishing and finishing disc cutters, conventional indexable insert hobs and unique indexable insert hobs at Gear Expo 2011. Among the highlighted products is the CoroMill 170 high performance gear milling cutter used for precision and reliability in roughing external and internal gears. The disc cutter allows manufacturers to cut time in gear machining, leaving minimal and even allowance for subsequent operations. The high-precision cutter body and insert tip seats allow for secure insert mounting, resulting in improved productivity and longer tool life. The CoroMill 176, a new full profile hob for gear milling will be on hand at the booth to demonstrate how the indexable carbide insert hob can reduce cutting time and double tool life compared to traditional high speed steel cutters. For roughing, semi-finishing and finishing, the innovative hob tool solution covers a range of gear profiles. The iLock interface technology between the body and insert ensures tool precision and prevents any inserts from movement.
In addition, Sandvik Coromant also offers the conventional hob designed for high metal removal rates with maintained reliability. Redesigned with indexable carbide inserts, the tool offers superior productivity and reduced cycle times compared to HSS cutters. In collaboration with Heller Machine Tool, Sandvik Coromant offers flexible, productive and cost efficient solutions for a wide range of bevel gear sizes. Sandvik Coromant has also collaborated with machine tool builders to supply a flexible solution for spur and helical gear manufacturing.
"Although we are still fairly new to the gear industry, we hope to provide attendees with the cutting-edge knowledge and the state-of-the-art technology to optimize overall gear manufacturing," says Ken Accavallo, gear industry and milling specialist at Sandvik Coromant U.S. "Working in close cooperation with the customer, we not only have an entire tooling offer, but we can provide the technical support required in turn-key gear operations."
