Sandvik says year on year its research and development has applied and tested process improvements upgrading the melt of Sanmac material and the result is the introduction of new generation Sanmac, 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, thus greatly reducing operator set up times.

“With new generation Sanmac, machining speeds of up to 240 m/min are achievable as a result of the material’s consistency.” says product manager Viktor Stefansson.
