Sandvik Coromant Introduces InvoMilling(TM) 1.0



Sandvik Coromant takes another step in the gear milling technology development by introducing the groundbreaking InvoMilling solution for flexible manufacturing of gears and splines on universal five-axes machining centers. The software InvoMilling 1.0 will be displayed at IMTS in Chicago on September 8, 2014.



The innovative InvoMilling solution is released as software supported by dedicated milling cutters as well as expertise from the Sandvik Coromant gear application team. With the CAM software InvoMilling 1.0, the CNC program is generated to produce different gear profiles with a limited range of standard-stocked precision tools. The solution has proven to be effective for manufacturing of gears and splines with great flexibility and high quality.



The InvoMilling software is very user friendly with excellent graphics, milling path generation and simulation functionality. It is developed by Sandvik Coromant and Euklid, a company with expert competence in gears and advanced CAD/CAM solutions.



Combined with the dedicated InvoMilling cutters CoroMill® 161 and CoroMill® 162, the new software guarantees exceptionally short lead-times for production of a very wide variety of gears and splines. InvoMilling is the ideal method when machining small and medium sized batches and when short lead times are a priority.
