NTMA is proud to welcome Sandvik Materials Technology as its newest National Associate Member!
With a unique expertise in materials development within advanced stainless steels and special alloys for a variety of high-demanding industries and applications, Sandvik Materials Technology has a broad customer offering in many segments. Their extensive insight into industrial processes and applications has resulted in proven capabilities to optimize customer productivity.
As a leading materials technology innovator and business partner, Sandvik works closely with their customers to jointly discover ways of addressing challenges to provide solutions that help make their processes safer, more energy efficient and productive. Their extensive range of stainless bar and hollow bar for machining are aimed at helping our customers fulfill – and even exceed – their productivity and performance expectations.
Vinicius Martins, Sales Manager Tube Americas for Sandvik Materials Technology states:
“I’m looking forward to interacting with NTMA members to help them find the right solution that can help them save time and money while also sharing our technical knowledge to get the best results for their specific applications.
“Machining components in stainless steels can be a challenge. There are lots of things to consider, such as tool consumption, machine utilization rates, and stoppages – whether planned or unplanned.
“Our main objective is to work closely with our customers to choose materials wisely so that they are the best fit for the components being made, enabling the customer to potentially save both time and money throughout the entire component machining process.”
Since its founding in 1862, Sandvik, the Sweden-based high-tech global engineering group, has worked closely with industrial customers to innovate new materials to meet these challenges. They recently extended their alloys to offer a broader range of high-performance options including:
- Sanicro® 825 (UNS N08825), a nickel-iron chromium alloy in round and hollow bar formats
- SAF 2205™+, a duplex (austenitic-ferritic) stainless steel for highly demanding applications
