Halesowen-based Sandvik Coromant will use EMO
to present new digital solutions for machining processes and efficient connected manufacturing (Hall 5, Stand B06).
True to the company’s mantra of ‘Shaping the future together’, innovations around digital machining and Industry 4.0 are set to be the focus (www.sandvik.coromant.com
Hardware in the shape of the latest cutting-tool and tooling innovations will also be in the spotlight, including a ‘revolutionary’ easy-to-use solution for efficient and reliable drilling.
This ios said to offer unprecedented performance at low cost, while simultaneously delivering consistent hole diameters at lower noise levels than existing products.
This drill will be officially launched at EMO 2019, where visitors to the stand will be the first to discover more.
The new-generation lightweight CoroMill 390 milling cutter — produced by additive manufacturing — is no less innovative.
Combined with Silent Tools adaptors, this lightweight cutter reduces vibration in long-overhang milling, increasing stability and productivity.
Beyond the tooling offer being showcased at EMO, Sandvik Coromant’s digital solutions enable the interconnection of design, planning and metal cutting, as well as effective process analysis and other improvements.
Various CoroPlus digital-machining solutions offer different ways to integrate manufacturing intelligence into a machine shop, resulting in optimised processes and fact-based improvement decisions.
For example, the market-ready Coromant Capto DTH Plus — a solution that enables the predictive maintenance of Coromant Capto driven tool-holders — will be on display.
One of the highlights will be the upgraded CoroPlus ToolPath software for PrimeTurning — the company’s recently introduced all-directional turning concept, which is ‘unlike anything seen before’.
It is designed to help manufacturers who use PrimeTurning technology to accelerate their operations and planning processes.
In addition, it now provides the option to import CAD models and create 3-D simulations with collision detection.
Following this holistic approach, Sandvik Coromant will also present a new solution that enables sensor-equipped tools, such as the Silent Tools Plus solution, to send data directly to the machine.
In this way, machining processes can be monitored and controlled in real time.
Another offer from the CoroPlus portfolio is the CoroPlus ToolGuide, which visitors to the Sandvik Coromant stand can test out for themselves.
This comprehensive solution provides precise tool recommendations and cutting data based on customer specifics, such as workpiece material and application type.
The latest addition includes an update with recommendations for boring tools and cutting data.
The newest addition to the Sandvik Coromant collection of apps is the Tool Wear Analyzer app.
Whenever a manufacturer is unsure of the cause of an unexpected tool wear, they can simply use their mobile phone to take a picture of the wear and compare it with wear types in a repository of images.
The app also allows the user to measure the wear and save it or share it with a colleague (the app works best with a microscope attached to the mobile phone).
Visitors to the company’s stand will be able to discuss the many innovations on display with 50 Sandvik Coromant specialists from around the world.
