Sandvik Coromant (Halesowen, U.K.) reported on April 19 that it has developed an online resource designed to encourage knowledge-sharing for the machining of composite components. Designed to impart most things manufacturers need to know about machining and working with composite materials, an online blog has been created to allow users to ask questions and get them answered by their peers and Sandvik Coromant’s own team of experts.
Sandvik Coromant will also run a competition through its composite machining blogs in English, French and German based on providing answers to a brief survey questionnaire. Launching in April, the competition will run for a month, with the winner picking up a new Apple iPad 2. Full details can be found on the three blogs.
Visit www.compositemachining.org for more information and to take the survey.
