To demonstrate this, the company will be running a ‘Sound Challenge’ on its Booth W-1228 to see if visitors can identify, ‘The sound of higher productivity.’

Year on year Sandvik Research & Development has applied and tested process improvements upgrading the melt of Sanmac material. The company says the result is the introduction of Sanmac 3G, a dedicated stainless steel material available in a range of grades, that not only offer machinability at similar rates to carbon steel, but also exhibit excellent chip breaks and have consistent machinability from heat to heat and lot to lot.
