Sandvik Coromant Machining Calculator App

August 01, 2015

Okuma machine tool apps put the power of improving part quality, reducing costs and increasing profitability in your hands. Sandvik Coromant's machining calculator apps in the Okuma App Store support engineers, programmers and machinists by conveniently estimating machining and cost calculations when cutting parts. Users input production data to calculate and compare various machining parameters to find more productive, faster and inexpensive machining options.

Turning and Milling Calculator features:

• Material database to calculate Kc values, power and torque

• Option to turn off help texts for all input columns

• Provides estimated cutting data when all input values are unknown

• Available in 9 languages

Drilling and Tapping features:

• Includes hole size calculations for tapping and ISO tolerances for bore and shaft

• Calculate various tool, insert and machining component costs including an option for single input or compare mode

• Compatible with metric and inch measurements

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.

  • tapping


    Machining operation in which a tap, with teeth on its periphery, cuts internal threads in a predrilled hole having a smaller diameter than the tap diameter. Threads are formed by a combined rotary and axial-relative motion between tap and workpiece. See tap.

  • turning


    Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
