WHAT: Two international OMIC R&D members – WFL Millturn Technologies of Austria and Sandvik Coromant of Sweden – will be demonstrating how to maximize manufacturing results using new metal cutting technologies. This is an opportunity for Oregon and regional companies to learn of new manufacturing techniques to gain a competitive advantage. Manufacturers from across the region will be attending to learn from highly skilled technicians from both companies on machines resident at OMIC R&D.

WHO: WFL Millturn Technologies is an international leader and pioneer in complete machining of complex parts. Sandvik Coromant is the global leader in metal cutting tooling and applications. Craig Campbell, OMIC R&D executive director, and the trainers from both companies will be available for interviews on the implications of having this level of sophisticated machinery on site at OMIC R&D.

HOW: OMIC R&D member companies have a long tradition of collaborating in advanced metal cutting

applications and will provide attendees with a wide range of opportunities on how to optimize value

creation in metal cutting. Capabilities of the MILLTURNTM machine concept by WFL will be presented together with live demonstrations on the M80 MILLTURN. A special emphasis will be on flexible and high precision gear cutting, a unique opportunity provided by the MILLTURNTM machine. Sandvik Coromant will present the latest developments in advanced metal cutting tooling and application solutions.
