Sandvik Coromant to Reveal Productivity Gains and Cost Savings at WESTEC 2007

Fair Lawn, New Jersey, January 8, 2007 - Located in WESTEC booth #3250, Sandvik Coromant will showcase a variety of innovative inserts and tools designed to provide today's manufacturer with dramatic productivity gains and cost savings. The company will unveil an array of new products at the trade show, which will be held from March 26 - March 29 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The new GC4230 insert grade from Sandvik Coromant provides versatility and high-performance in light to heavy milling of alloyed and unalloyed steels. Through stressless coating technologies, the GC4230 offers improved edge line toughness far beyond standard CVD grades, boosting cutting speeds and metal removal rates.

Also at the show, Sandvik Coromant will introduce multiple new insert grades that boost turning productivity and performance. The highly reliable GC4235 provides excellent security in both steels and stainless steels, even when working in unstable and demanding conditions. The CC6060 and CC6065 grades of round ceramic inserts achieve 4-6 times the cutting speed of conventional carbide inserts in medium to roughing operations. Lastly, the CB7025 will optimize cutting results in light to heavy interrupted cuts of case hardened steel.

In addition to inserts, a new dampened silent version of the CoroMill 390 will make its debut at WESTEC 2007. Through the integrated dampening, the new CoroMill 390 eliminates vibration to improve performance in deep cavities and pockets. This allows cutting parameters to be increased without risk to workpiece quality.

The new CoroTurn TR improves clamping stability and security through a robust T-rail interface between the insert and holder. The unique design incorporates vertical and horizontal rails to increase support of the insert, allowing for the production of higher quality, closer tolerance components.
