Sandvik Coromant's OptiThreading software module for thread turning helps overcome the risk of chip jams and associated downtimejpgClick image to enlarge

Sandvik Coromant has launched OptiThreading, a new software module designed to optimize chip breaking in thread turning applications.

OptiThreading is part of Sandvik Coromant’s CoroPlus Tool Path software solution. The new module is available as part of a subscription to the CoroPlus Tool Path, and has been developed specifically for CoroThread 266 tools and inserts. 

Sandvik Coromant says that using OptiThreading will eliminate long chips that damage a component’s surface and interfere with the cutting zone, and that it will also reduce the manual intervention required to remove long chips jamming the tool, the component or the chip conveyor, resulting in fewer unplanned machine stops. OptiThreading also makes it possible to increase cutting speeds for shorter cycle times and improved productivity.
