The CoroBore BC (Boring Combination) range of solutions, which comprises Tailor Made tools for high-volume applications, is being released by Sandvik Coromant.
Using CoroBore BC it is possible to perform different operations such as semi-finishing and chamfering with a single tool. Manufacturers set to benefit include those serving the automotive, general engineering and construction equipment sectors.
According to Sandvik Coromant, CoroBore BC offers a quick and easy alternative when standard tools do not match up to specific requirements, but the cost and delivery time of a specially engineered solution are prohibitive. The process is fast as Sandvik Coromant personnel utilise an online program that automatically creates the tool and provides price and delivery information.
“The productivity advantages offered by CoroBore BC tools are based on eliminating unnecessary tool changes and reducing cycle times,” says Jenny Nilsson, global product manager at Sandvik Coromant. “Among the many strengths of the new solution is the capability to offer these benefits at much shorter notice, thanks to an automated design and quoting process. The Sandvik Coromant representative simply goes through the required operations with the customer, and enters the parameters via a web-based design interface. Once this is complete, the system instantly produces the tool design and quote.”
Thanks to the various CoroBore BC options offered, a range of multi-step boring applications can be performed. Indeed, customers can choose from up to four machining operations in a single tool (a maximum of two cutting edges per operation). Cutting diameters range from 20 to 200 mm, while tool length can be up to 400 mm, depending on coupling size.
