October 20, 2010

Sandvik Coromant’s Technologic event, taking place October 27, 2010, at the Sandvik Coromant Productivity Center in Schaumburg, IL, will focus on machining processes for applications with difficult-to-machine materials.

A variety of sessions will run from 9am to 6pm. The morning portion of Technologic will focus on machining techniques for applications in heat resistant super alloys, titanium, composites, cobalt chrome, and hardened steels. Three afternoon presentations will cover innovations in PCBN tooling, the financial impact of productivity improvements and Sandvik Coromant’s 2010 product introductions. Each of these presentations will be offered at 1pm, 2:30pm and 4pm, to provide attendees with the flexibility to easily attend any or all of them.

“We have been holding Technologic events for a year now and the feedback has been tremendous,” says John Israelsson, president of Sandvik Coromant. “The technical material presented through these events supercedes any individual products and gets to the heart of processes that can help American manufacturers further enhance their competitive advantages. By working together with partners throughout the industry, we are able to bring together a powerful base of expertise and put it at a manufacturer’s fingertips.”

Technologic will showcase cutting demonstrations on equipment from DMG, Haas, Mazak, Mori Seiki, and Okuma.

Additionally, manned all day will be the Productivity Center’s Smart Hub, where cutting tool experts will be available to answer questions and offer advice on attendees’ most demanding applications. To register for Technologic, please visit .
