In machining, productivity is defined as
the ratio between output and input. Machining input
includes the resources made available for production, i.e.
operator, machinery, equipment, workpiece material, toolroom
inventory and overhead. Output is basically what gets
done during the available production time.
Modern cutting tools correctly applies and
with optimized cutting data have a major cost saving effect!
It is estimated that cutting tools represent
about three percent of the total production costs and will
most likely be decreased in the future as development of cutting
tool technology advances. Savings on most tool costs
will therefore only have a marginal effect and cannot compare
with the savings that can be achieved by lowering the production
costs through increased output.
By choosing high quality cutting tools and
increasing cutting data, considerable cost reductions can
A 20% increase in speed or feed
can equal a 15% cost reduction.
Improve performance and results. Your
Sandvik Coromant representative can help select the best tools
for your operation and show you how to apply those tools to
achieve cost savings.
