Ovako launches M-Steel Calculator - a digital service tool
Stockholm (Sweden), 23 May 2017 – Ovako, a Triton Fund III company, has launched the M-Steel Calculator, a digital tool based on the company’s Steel Navigator platform. It guides customers in identifying the right machine settings based on steel properties and cutting tools. The M-Steel Calculator also allows customers to compare tool life and cutting speeds between M-Steel® from Ovako and conventional steel.
“We are pleased to be able to offer our customers the M-Steel Calculator for comparison and verification of the correct machine settings. Similar digital tools on the market have until now been based only on the equipment and not the type of steel being used. With the M-Steel Calculator, we can provide our customers with an efficient and user-friendly way to calculate the right settings and evaluate the difference in processing costs between M-Steel from Ovako and conventional steel,” says Göran Nyström, EVP Group Marketing & Technology. “Our ambition is to provide our customers with the best level of service, and the M-Steel Calculator is a part of Ovako’s priority efforts to address customer requirements with the right product, of the right quality, at the right time and through the right channel.”
The M-Steel Calculator is a development of Ovako’s Steel Navigator, a platform to help customers identify the best steel, and is part of Ovako’s digitalization strategy. It further strengthens the group’s objective to offer its customers the best service in the industry.
The M-Steel Calculator, which is primarily aimed at operators in the automotive and engineering industries, is based on Ovako’s M-Steel, which has characteristics that improve machining and can enhance the life of cutting tools many times over compared with conventional steel.
The M-Steel Calculator from Ovako is available for computers, tablets or smartphones. For more information, please visit M-Steel Calculator.
