Sandvik Coromant UK has relocated its Global Application Center for deep-hole machining (DHM) from Cirencester to its headquarters at Halesowen in the West Midlands. The move centralises the company’s deep-hole machining business and will benefit customers by delivering solutions from a single location, the company said.
The centre will develop machining processes for customers in sectors such as power generation, aerospace and energy, the company explained. The site will also host machine tool manufacturers, research establishments and universities that wish to conduct cutting trials on specific materials or components.
The centre includes a machine capable of internal profiling and chamber boring with a capacity of 600 by 2,500mm (part diameter by length), and it can drill holes from 10 to 150mm diameter–counterbored up to 300mm diameter.
