Sandvik Coromant has announced its GC1040, a new milling grade that is available as of October 1, 2010. The grade has been designed to perform securely with consistently sharp cutting edges, low forces and slow wear, even in the extremely tough machining of austenitic stainless and duplex materials.
As the Sandvik Coromant first-choice recommendation for shoulder milling with small diameters in fine to medium roughing, GC1040 is ultimately secure in unstable conditions and provides the high levels of reliability needed for unmanned production.
Grade GC1040 will be available for a broad range of Sandvik Coromant CoroMill cutters.
