The Excelerator milling systems, which uses WG-600 whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts, is designed for high-performance milling in difficult-to-machine materials. Typical applications include hardened materials above 40 HRc as well as nickel- and cobalt-based superalloys. The WG-600 whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts are effective for both roughing and finishing of high-strength alloys and hardened steels. These inserts are use a coated AL2O3 whisker-reinforced ceramic that delivers better tool life than uncoated whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts, the company says.
Modular Tooling Lines Enable Shop Standardization
Sandvik Coromant says that its modular CoromantEH, CoroTurn SL and Capto tooling lines enable the selection of optimized tooling assemblies to suit all applications using a smaller inventory of standard items.
