Sandvik Coromant, a global leader in metal cutting tools and tooling solutions, is hosting a virtual event for manufacturers in the aerospace, automotive, defense, space and general engineering industries. Titled “Navigating the Artistry of Aluminum Machining,” the live broadcast will take place on Thursday, June 27, 2024, at 12 p.m. ET. To register, visit go.sandvik.coromant.com/saam-us-2406-wbn-Alu_LP-Registration.

As manufacturers face growing environmental regulations and consumer demand for sustainable products, lightweight materials like aluminum are becoming increasingly critical. However, machining aluminum components presents unique challenges. This event will provide practical solutions for optimizing the aluminum machining process.

“We understand the obstacles our customers face when machining complex aluminum components more than just the traditional internal combustion engines, and aluminum is in every industry,” said Rick Crabtree, product solution manager for aluminum at Sandvik Coromant. “This interactive event will equip attendees with innovative tooling strategies and programming techniques to achieve burr-free milling, reduced cycle times, lower cost-per-part and radical productivity boosts.”

Key topics to be covered include:

  • Aluminum as a solution to address the manufacturing industry’s component challenges
  • Intricacies of machining complex aluminum components like cylinder blocks and heads
  • Using shorter and stiffer cutting tools, optimizing toolpath strategies and employing advanced machining technologies to enhance the machining process
  • Implementing programming strategies and techniques that optimize burr-free milling, reduce cycle time and lower cost-per-part

Host Rick Crabtree has led global teams responsible for productivity improvements throughout more than 38 years working in the manufacturing industry. With firsthand experience as a machinist and CNC programmer, he understands the challenges and needs on the machine shop floor and has helped customers achieve millions of dollars in cost savings. Crabtree has dedicated the past seven years of his career to aluminum components.

The live virtual event will include a Q&A session, allowing attendees to have their specific questions answered. Registration for the event is open.
