As such, Sandvik Coromant will work together with the machine tool builder on marketing initiatives such as open house events. Specifically, the agreement will give users of DMG Mori machines access to turning, parting and grooving, threading, milling, drilling, boring and reaming tools from Sandvik Coromant, as well as tooling systems and the company’s extensive range of knowledge, industry solutions and services.
Klas Forsstr?m, global president of Sandvik Coromant, says: “This agreement confirms our position as one of our industry's true premium and forward-looking companies. As we join forces with a leading machine tool builder, for example on turnkey projects, we take an active role in advancing technology for the industry.”
Sandvik Coromant will equip DMG Mori machines right from the start of each project with products, services and know-how. For instance, a customised start-up tool kit and service will be supplied with each NLX series universal lathe and NT turn-mill centre.
DMG Mori says that the premium partner programme “was developed in order to make its global network available to a number of selected partners.”
DMG Mori premium partners include toolsetting and toolholder manufacturer Haimer, bearings supplier Schaeffer and controls firm Siemens. Other DMG Mori preferred partners include Ingersoll Cutting Tools (represented in the British Isles only by Hard Metal Machine Tools of Ireland; there does not appear to be a UK representative at present) and tooling management provider TDM Systems.
An example of the successful collaboration between Sandvik Coromant and DMG Mori can be seen when the pair recently partnered with Rota Metal, a distributor in Turkey, and its customer, Polat Makina.
Polat, a producer of decanter and separator technologies utilised for wastewater treatment, industrial, mineral and food applications, switched from individual machining processes to multi-tasking machines. Here, Sandvik Coromant was able to recommend a complete new tooling package based upon the company’s Coromant Capto modular quick-change tooling concept. The DMG Mori machines included an NTX 2000 with Capto C6 spindle, an NT 5400 with Capto C8 spindle, and an NT 6600 with Capto C8 spindle. Other Sandvik Coromant tools specified to help complete the switch included Silent Tools, CoroTurn HP, CoroCut SL, CoroDrill 860, CoroTap 300, CoroChuck 970 and CoroChuck 930. The end result was reduced machining time, from 2,500 to 500 minutes for a finished Duplex stainless steel product.
States Volkan Polat, deputy general manager of Polat Makina: “Sandvik Coromant did not just supply the tools, it supplied the solution.”
