Sandvik CoroCut QD a new concept

01 December 2013

SANDVIK Coromant has introduced a brand new parting off concept for deep grooves and long overhangs. For volume bar-fed parts manufacturing, producers are continually seeking solutions that offer more efficient material usage to control their overall costs and support increased bar feed capacity. Ensuring process security through a predictable and consistent tool life is also important to ensure reproducible parts quality, particularly for parting off.

Sandvik Coromant has introduced a range of solutions covering parting and SL blades, adaptors, shank and Swiss tools and a new generation of inserts for parting off that meets these aspirations. CoroCut QD builds on the well-proven Q-Cut and CoroCut ranges, and in doing so expands the options for these processes with a flexible, simple-to-use and easy-to-select tooling range.

 The focus in development of this new concept has been key aspects such as new tool material and a tooling design for greater process stability. The tool attachment is achieved via a smart yet simple user-friendly clamping mechanism. The tool tip seat is tilted 20 degrees and incorporates a back stop to withstand high cutting forces. For insert widths 2 mm and wider, the insert interface has a rail to increase stability.

In developing CoroCut QD, attention has been paid to the development of new and upgraded parting geometries. Within the CoroCut QD concept are inserts with five parting geometries and one turning geometry as well as options for “do-it-yourself” grinding and tailor-made options for a broad range of material types. The PVD insert coating offers better adhesion, improved edge-line qualities and better
ER tolerance.
