CoroPlus Brings Connectivity to Manufacturing Plants



CoroPlus-the suite of connectivity solutions from Sandvik Coromant-helps manufacturers prepare for Industry 4.0.

Sandvik Coromant has unveiled its CoroPlus suite of industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions aimed at helping manufacturers prepare for Industry 4.0. The concept is designed specifically to improve the control of productivity and costs through a combination of connected machining and access to manufacturing data and expert knowledge.

CoroPlus is the umbrella name for a new platform of connected tools and software comprising technologies that can send and/or receive data. The concept makes it possible to reduce data waste and improve manufacturing processes, from pre- to post-machining, through the use of connected technology and machining knowledge from Sandvik Coromant.

"Users not only get access to Sandvik Coromant product and application data through connected software and hardware, but with sensor-equipped tools with which they can adjust, control and monitor machining performance in real time," said Göran Näslund, Head of Digital Machining. "The entire machine shop can be controlled via accurate on-site data dashboards, through the cloud and via integration with the user's software and machine environment. CoroPlus connects into existing software environments through open APIs, offering two-way connectivity and accurate data quality."

The principal benefit for production managers is that CoroPlus makes it possible to optimize manufacturing through better understanding and insight into what is happening in the workshops and machining environment, on either a micro or macro level. From a CAM programmer's perspective, connection with accurate tool and application data means that recommendations can be adapted to specific tasks. There are also advantages for operators because machining processes can be monitored remotely. Furthermore, specific sensor-equipped tools can be controlled to ensure that breakages are avoided and performance is secured with data intelligence collected live throughout the machining process.

The offer currently comprises dashboard solutions, software solutions in CoroPlus Tool Guide and Adveon Tool Library, as well as Silent Tools+ and CoroBore+ cutting tools and Promos 3+ machine monitoring IoT system.

"With CoroPlus we are partnering with machining tool builders, cloud suppliers and network companies," said Göran. "In this way, we can help users capitalize on new technology developments. Our role is to increase productivity and flexibility through value-creating technological advancements in digital machining."
