Sandvik Coromant releases new CoroMill QD groove milling concept

Sandvik Coromant has introduced a new range of trouble-free groove
milling cutters featuring internal coolant and dedicated insert geometries for
milling applications with high process security.

Chip evacuation is one of the main challenges in groove milling with chip
issues often impacting production efficiency, lowering component quality and
causing tool breakage, especially when machining narrow and deep grooves.

The new CoroMill QD cutter from Sandvik Coromant is designed for groove
milling and parting off operations, easily handling chip issues with optimised
geometries and the unique internal coolant solution. The chips are
deformed by the insert geometry to a shape narrower than the groove and flushed
out by the coolant.

CoroMill QD offers a reliable solution for secure and trouble-free production
processes along with the assurance of long and predictable tool life.

Sandvik Coromant has also introduced a complementary range of new
adaptors enabling use of CoroMill QD groove milling cutters regardless of whether the
preferred machines are small- to medium-sized machining centres, large machining
centres or multi-task machines.

The internal coolant is based on a four-channel
delivery solution from the adaptors to the cutter. Coolant delivery into the
groove is achieved by implementing this solution on the new adaptors for CoroMill
QD.
