Innovation and productivity
We focus on solutions that boost productivity, enable enhanced energy efficiency, improve the utilization of resources and increase health and safety. Maximizing the use of recycled material is also an important area.
We have a strong commitment to our customers, collaborating with them to define and develop solutions that correspond to their current and future needs. Ongoing partnerships with a number of universities and research institutes are vital to ensure efficient R&D operations. This enables flexible access to expert knowledge in selected technologies and fundamental research in such fields as material science and thermodynamic modeling, while also reducing our cost base.
Sandvik Hiflex™ compressor valve steel
Sandvik HiflexTM precision strip steel is specially designed for the manufacture of compressor valves for next-generation compressors. Compressor valves made from Sandvik HiflexTM precision strip steel contribute to enhancing compressor efficiency, promote long service life and can also contribute to reduced noise levels.
The insert GC4315 is based on the Inveio™ technology, which is a breakthrough in material science. GC4315 insert grades deliver real benefits for automotive and oil and gas customers through improved tool life and production reliability, as well as reduced cycle times for operations. GC4315 insert excels in steel cutting applications that generate high temperatures. When other inserts reach a limit in metal removal rate due to high speed or long time in cut, GC4315 gets the job done, yielding greater output while consuming fewer resources.
