TOOLING - Start-up toolkits available from Sandvik Coromant

It’s a fact that relatively few machine tools are acquired direct from the manufacturer as a complete, turnkey package. Indeed, some 70 per cent of new machines are sold un-tooled by machine tool suppliers, agents or distributors. For this reason it’s easy for customers to overlook the issue of tooling, a factor that could easily hamper the transition time from machine delivery to full production. To address this problem, Sandvik Coromant offers a range of start-up toolkits designed to get new machines up and running immediately. Adding a start-up toolkit when buying a machine means customers can start making profit straight away and subsequently reduce the payback period of their investment.

In total, 66 different start-up toolkits are now available for the most common turning centres, machining centres and sliding head machines. Included in the toolkits is a selection of typical tools required to commence machining (the contents are supplied in their original packaging). Kits include cast iron and steel production, aluminium production and die and mould production.

Sandvik Coromant has created a dedicated webpage at where site visitors can be guided through how to choose the right kit. There are also links to the Sandvik Coromant Machine Investment support service, and links to tips and tricks that help optimize set-up. There is also a brochure available for download that describes the toolkits in detail.

The toolkits are easy to specify based on machine style and interface with just a single order code. Furthermore, the tools are delivered together in one convenient kit with a high quality plastic carry case, and are available to be purchased by anyone, including machine suppliers, agents, distributors and customers.
