“What will you Discover?” is the theme of the 5,700-square-foot Smart Hub, where an international team of Sandvik Coromant specialists will be based throughout the event. Visitors can explore the latest drilling, milling and turning technologies, as well as find out about important manufacturing industry trends.
A yellow "Discovery Line" acts as a guide through the booth and a number of key Sandvik Coromant solutions, including the new generation of tooling technology, the latest developments in high-pressure coolant (HPC) applications and toolholders for sliding-head lathes.
Elsewhere in the Smart Hub, there will be several displays relating to specific industry sectors and applications. There will be special areas for hard part turning (HPT) in the automotive sector and details of solutions for the aerospace and energy industries. New gear milling technologies and the use of Silent Tools in drilling applications will also be showcased.
Company president, Klas Forsström, will give a lecture on attracting brilliant minds to the next generation of machining at this year’s VDMA Congress. This event, concurrent with EMO, is themed "Inspired by Technology."
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
