All-Directional Turning Cuts Cycle Times 50%
Sandvik Coromant’s PrimeTurning process allows turning and facing in all directions, delivering dramatic increases in high volume production. Cycle time reductions of 50% or more can be achieved.
If you thought there’s nothing new in turning, think again. Sandvik Coromant’s new PrimeTurning process offers dramatic improvements over conventional turning, allowing higher speeds and feeds, better chip control, improved tool life, and less time lost cutting air.
We’ll explain more below, but first take a look at this video and you’ll get the picture quickly.
No, the video is not running backwards on some of those cuts. In conventional turning, you feed toward the chuck in the Z axis. But with PrimeTurning you can feed in either direction in turning, facing and shoulder-cutting operations. The results are astonishing. Some operations can be performed in a small fraction of the time required in conventional turning, and with a better surface finish as well.
