Sandvik Coromant partners with Autodesk on specifying metal-cutting tools

Dec. 2, 2020
The first step in this new partnership attempts to remove the time-consuming nature of data selection by providing Autodesk customers with access to the Sandvik Coromant tool data.

Sandvik Coromant has announced a new partnership with Autodesk that is aiming to deliver benefits to the future of Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). The collaboration was officially announced on November 17, 2020 at Autodesk University 2020 — an online conference for design and manufacturing. The announcement marks the first step of a long-term partnership between the brands.

According to Sandvik Coromant, the first step of the collaboration will tackle one of the most widespread challenges in CAM; the task of specifying cutting tools to determine the most effective way to use them.

Sandvik Coromant introduces more than 2,500 new products per year. The partnership will allow Sandvik Coromant to share this knowledge with even more CAM users in Autodesk Fusion 360.

"Today’s manufacturing world is increasingly competitive," said Jonas Ström, product manager at Sandvik Coromant. "Materials are lighter, harder and stronger, machines are more advanced, batch sizes are smaller and component design is increasingly complex — all of this leads to an increased need for CAM programming and skilled CAM users."

Typically, CAM users rely on manually transferring data from tooling catalogues and inputting the parameters into CAM software says Sandvik Coromant.

"Manufacturing and metal cutting are already complex processes, and they’re often made more difficult by manually managing tooling information resulting in delayed setup times and increased room for machining error," said Srinath Jonnalagadda, vice president of business strategy for design and manufacturing at Autodesk. "By pairing our CAM software solutions with Sandvik Coromant’s deep tooling knowledge and expertise, we’re helping customers reduce time and improve efficiency in the preparation phase."

The Autodesk partnership is part of a long-term vision for Sandvik Coromant. The first step in this new partnership attempts to remove the time-consuming nature of data selection by providing Autodesk customers with access to the Sandvik Coromant tool data.
