Sandvik Coromant has signed an agreement to become a “premium partner” of DMG MORI. The deal, which makes Sandvik Coromant the only tooling manufacturer to be named as a DMG MORI premium partner, will further strengthen the relationship between the companies on a global scale. Machine shops around the world will benefit from the combined knowledge and experience of the two companies.

As a premium partner, Sandvik Coromant will work with the machine tool builder on a range of initiatives, including R&D and engineering, open house events, trade show appearances, technical seminars, website collaboration, and the DMG MORI Journal. Specifically, the agreement will give users of DMG MORI machines access to the turning, parting and grooving, threading, milling, drilling, boring and reaming tools from Sandvik Coromant, as well as tooling systems and the company’s range of knowledge, industry solutions and services.

Sandvik Coromant will equip DMG MORI machines with a range of products, services and know-how. A customized start-up tool kit and service will be supplied with each NLX series universal lathe and NT turn-mill center in selected markets. On the CLX/CMX (previously Ecoline) entry-level machines and DMC V vertical machining centers, users will receive a defined tool kit and global service provision.
