Oct. 30, 2014 – Sandvik Coromant’s InvoMilling software for the flexible manufacturing of gears and splines on universal five-axis machining centers is designed for use when machining small and medium-sized batches and when short lead times are a priority. With the CAM software InvoMilling 1.0, the CNC program is generated to produce different gear profiles with a limited range of standard-stocked precision tools. The InvoMilling software is developed by Sandvik Coromant and Euklid, a company with experience in gears and advanced CAD/CAM solutions. Combined with the dedicated InvoMilling cutters, CoroMill 161 and CoroMill 162, the new software guarantees short lead times for production of a very wide variety of gears and splines, the company says.
