Every shop hopes to reduce cycle times, increase productivity and improve security. Some processes’ efficiencies are tougher to increase than others, though—one being steel turning. However, new advances in material science are allowing the latest insert grades for steel turning to demonstrate very high levels of endurance at manufacturer facilities around the world, according to a white paper by Sandvik Coromant. In this white paper, real machine shop challenges are referenced, as well as how these obstacles were dealt with. A new insert grade has proven its endurance and is now available to manufacturers.
