Sandvik Coromant At EMO 2019: Driving Innovation And Digitalization In Manufacturing

With unique products and new digital solutions and concepts, the world’s leading supplier of tools and know-how to the metalworking industry will be showing EMO 2019 visitors how they can achieve process optimization.

Sandvik Coromant will use EMO to present new digital solutions for machining processes and efficient connected manufacturing. 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 of the 528 m2 stand in Hall 5 (Booth B06).

Of course, hardware in the shape of the latest cutting tool and tooling innovations will also be in the spotlight. Chief among the latest products making the transition from development lab to commercial availability will be a revolutionary, easy-to-use solution for efficient and reliable drilling. This breakthrough tool offers unprecedented performance at low cost, while simultaneously delivering consistent hole diameters at lower noise levels than existing generation products. The drill will be officially launched at the booth, where visitors 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 the cutter reduces, thanks to its lightweight construction, vibration in long-overhang milling, thus increasing stability and productivity.

Beyond the tooling offer being showcased at EMO, the company’s digital solutions enable the interconnection of design, planning and metal cutting, as well as effective process analysis and advancements. Various CoroPlus digital machining solutions from Sandvik Coromant offer different ways to integrate manufacturing intelligence into a machine shop, resulting in optimized 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 at the booth will be the upgraded CoroPlus ToolPath software for PrimeTurning, the recently introduced all-directional turning concept from Sandvik Coromant that is unlike anything seen before. CoroPlus ToolPath software is designed to support manufacturers who use PrimeTurning technology in accelerating their operations and planning processes. In addition, the software now provides the option to import CAD models and create 3D 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 booth 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 phone to take a picture of the wear and easily 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 if you use a microscope attached to the phone.

Visitors to the company’s booth at EMO will be able to discuss the many innovations on display with 50 Sandvik Coromant specialists from around the world. In order to find the right expert, visitors will have two touchscreens at their disposal that will guide them accordingly. Those intended to visit can also make appointments with the experts in advance by using a form, which will be available from mid-June on the Sandvik Coromant website. In addition, the 18-strong international Service Team will support exhibitors before and during EMO with comprehensive services for all aspects of machine equipment. The team will be available at Pavilion P35 one week before the start of the show.

In order to develop the best possible investment decision support together with its customers, Sandvik Coromant takes an integrated view of the manufacturing process cooperating with various machine manufacturers as a result. EMO visitors will therefore not only find Sandvik Coromant solutions at the company's booth, but on the stands of numerous machine manufacturers around the show.

Last but not least, the media will be able to gain exclusive insight on the latest technological and corporate developments at a press event taking place on September 17 at the EMO Convention Center.
