Digital developments are creating a host of new opportunities in industrial applications and processes. For Sandvik, this means an accelerated pace of launching new digital solutions that contribute to increase safety, reduce environmental impact and optimize efficiency.
In 1942, Wilhelm Haglund was entrusted with the task of investing time and money in a production unit for cemented-carbide tools. The result transformed the metal-cutting industry. Since then, Sandvik Coromant has developed several generations of inserts, coatings and geometries.
Kjell A. Nordström, a researcher in multinational companies, Björn Rosengren, President and CEO of Sandvik, and Camilla Engbrink, VP Product Management and R&D at Sandvik Coromant, discuss opportunities with digitization.
