Sandvik Coromant is pleased to announce its interactive Metal Cutting Technology (MCT) e-Learning program is now available. This comprehensive online program was developed by the Sandvik Coromant Academy and was based on the needs of manufacturing personnel all over the world. The 75-course curriculum is packed with information and expertise about the metal cutting process. Ideal for engineers, programmers, operators and students, it provides first rate insight and knowledge to improve productivity and profitability.
This unique training and education program explains the fundamentals of metal cutting and specifically teaches about internal and external turning, parting and grooving, milling, drilling, threading, boring and tool holding. Understanding the metal cutting process plays an increasingly important role in manufacturing to boost productivity and cut costs.
