Milling challenging materials like tough steels, stainless steels, superalloys and titanium cause built-up or notched edges and broken inserts that increase tooling costs and cause unexpected downtime.
Global metal-cutting leader Sandvik Coromant is expanding its milling offering with the new CoroMill MF80 for automotive milling applications in ISO K and ISO P materials in close to 90-degree operations with fixture constraints.
To provide manufacturers versatility and high value, Seco has launched its new X-Head quick-change replaceable milling head system. With the system, users can quickly and easily change between various solid carbide milling geometries and types to optimize milling operations while reducing manufacturing costs and tooling inventories.
The new ANCA MX7 ULTRA can manufacture large volumes of precision endmills and other cutting tools. The minute size of a micron is beyond the human eye, but by moving from micrometers to nanometers, ANCA will offer the highest accuracy and quality in a cutting tool in the market.
Sandvik Coromant, has earned the 2022 IndustryWeek Best Plants Award for its Westminster, South Carolina, production site. The award is given to North American manufacturing plants that lead their industries in outstanding operational excellence, customer service and employee engagement.
Sandvik Coromant has appointed two new members to its management group. Michael Eneberg began his new role as vice president and head of global sales on May 1, 2022, while Nicolas Dellachiesa will join as head of merger and acquisitions (M&A) in June. Reporting to Sandvik Coromant President, Helen Blomqvist, both Eneberg and Dellachiesa will play vital roles in driving the company’s global growth forward.
Seco and its technical partners will host the company’s second Medical Inspiration Through Innovation (ITI) virtual event on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, in German and on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, in English and Mandarin.
Manufacturers who look for versatility and precision in machining can pair up Seco Turbo 16 square shoulder milling cutters and Helical Turbo 16 milling cutters to reduce tooling inventories and costs. Both series offer high material removal rates in steel, stainless steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, superalloys and titanium.
The transition to EVs will lower transport emissions, and adoption can be accelerated by increasing their efficiency. EVs that take advantage of aluminum components can travel further per charge, helping to overcome range anxiety. Automotive manufacturers who select machining tools optimized for aluminum will be able to produce high-quality aluminum EV components ― helping to support the shift to greener travel.
