Klingelnberg Partners With Sandvik Coromant for Tool Concept Project
April 23, 2015
Klingelnberg GmbH and Sandvik Coromant have come together to work on a new tool concept for the Klingelnberg Zyklo-Palloid gear cutting process, designed to establish dry processing with carbide indexable inserts.
System supplier Klingelnberg GmbH, a machine manufacturer in gear technology, and Sandivk Cormorant, a provider of tool solutions join forces to offer customers end-to-end solutions that take into account and optimize the complete machine, comprising the machine, setting, cutting parameters and tool solution.
“Our goal, of course, is to realize innovative modifications to enable our customers to manufacture their products with maximum flexibility, shorter processing times and lower process costs,” said Dr. Tim Sadek, head of the tool machines product line at Klingelnberg.
To accomplish this, both companies are blazing new trails in a joint effort. Together with Sandvik Coromant, Klingelnberg has been at work developing a modern tool concept for the Klingelnberg Zyklo-Palloid gear cutting process, which will replace the proven system based on high speed steel materials.
“In the long term, we intend to establish dry processing in this gear cutting process as well, which will entail cost advantages, environmental aspects and ease of operation,” said Sadek.
Jointly conducted basic research and development is a tradition for these two companies. Both have been working on technological solutions in partnership since 2009 and together have developed solutions for hobbing with carbide indexing inserts for production readiness, which are currently on the market.
The partnership intensified in 2012, when both companies committed to the implementation of dry processing with carbide indexing inserts in the Zyklo-Palloid gear cutting process.
