Sandvik Coromant has released the new version of its main catalogue for 2009.
This definitive guide from the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of cutting tools and tooling systems contains thousands of high performance turning, parting and grooving, milling, drilling, boring and toolholding products developed by “the industry’s largest and most experienced in-house R&D team”.
The company releases between 2,000 and 3,000 new products every year, but to ensure successful management of the introduction process, new products are collated into two bi-annual ‘CoroPaks’. All of the new products featured in CoroPak 08.1 and CoroPak 08.2 are included in the new 2009 main catalogue.
The catalogue features the latest in cutting tool innovation, offering product information, detailed charts, specifications, illustrations, recommendations and ordering information that aid customers in choosing the most appropriate solutions to suit their unique application needs.
Among the highlights of the new products featured in the catalogue are: the CoroMill 490 new generation face and shoulder mill now in grades to suit cast iron machining; the CoroMill 690 long-edge milling cutter for titanium applications; GC1010 milling grade for machining hardened steels; WMX wiper geometry for negative inserts performing at higher than ever feed rates; GC1125 and GC1515 grades for light turning steels at high output rates; and HM ultra tough double-sided geometry for first stage machining applications.
Sandvik Coromant’s central stocking points in Europe, the US and the Far East supply customers directly, within 24 hours.
