Sandvik Coromant Launches Knowledge Sharing Resources for Composite Machining

HALESOWEN, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In an era where more information is being shared every day, Sandvik Coromant has introduced a valuable online resource designed to encourage knowledge-sharing for the machining of composite components.

Composites uptake is growing rapidly, with sectors such as aerospace, motorsport, automotive, marine and wind energy adopting ever greater ratios of composite parts per assembly due to their impressive combination of high strength and light weight. While carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) is currently the dominant material group, metal matrix and ceramic matrix composites are also seeing wider use in engineering applications.

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. The URL is www.compositemachining.org.

With its growing relevance for business activities, Sandvik Coromant has also been quick to make use of the latest social media outlets for smooth dialogue and easily accessed information about composites via Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Ultimately, the entire resource is designed to engage the composites community and encourage visitors to share knowledge and ask questions. Initial traffic figures are already proving there is genuine demand for this kind of media.
