Lower costs per steel component: Sandvik Coromant’s new GC4305 for shorter cycle times in the automotive industry

In the automotive industry, steel continues to be the most important material by far. To further optimise steel machining processes in this industry, Sandvik Coromant has developed GC4305, an insert that offers both extremely high metal removal rates and stable conditions. With its outstanding performance at high cutting data and its dry machining capability, it offers companies the benefit of reduced cycle times and lower costs per component.

With Sandvik Coromant’s wear-resistant Inveio™ coating, this new grade of insert achieves the long tool life that is so crucial in the highly competitive automotive industry.

The innovative, heat-resistant cutting material is also suitable for dry machining, making it the ideal solution for automotive component manufacturers seeking to avoid the stresses to which tools are subjected from unwanted temperature fluctuations. This, too, results in a longer tool life. In combination with the high processing speeds typical of dry machining, costs per component can be substantially reduced. Costs are further lowered by decreasing costs for cooling lubricant, recycling and disposal, thanks to, among other things, the elimination of cooling lubricants and associated wastes, lower capital investment, and cheaper disposal of chips.
