Move over Texas Instruments. Pitch those trig tables. Today it’s all about portability and ease of use. Optimizing cutting data for metalworking applications has never been more important as shops try to find every scintilla of efficiency and cost savings within their processes.

To help with that quest, Sandvik Coromant has released a free app designed to provide engineers and machinists with a convenient resource for calculating cutting data. Once downloaded and installed, the app helps users optimize performance of their turning, milling and drilling applications by calculating optimal settings based on each job’s unique parameters.
“We’re always looking for exciting new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers,” says Lennart Lindgren, global vice president, marketing and sales. “We developed this app to provide customers with a convenient resource that can be accessed anywhere they take their phone.”
The machining calculator app features a help button that provides additional information on the calculation being executed and the input needed to generate results. Sandvik’s app also contains a process cost comparison that determines how tool optimization can provide cost and time savings. The app works with either metric or inch measurements and is available for both iPhone and Android phones.
Users can get more information about the Sandvik Coromant machining calculator app at its webiste.
