The Power of Partnership: Achieving Sustainability Goals with the Right Collaborator

In precision machining, finding the perfect balance between innovation, reliability, and sustainability is essential. Sandvik Coromant, a leading manufacturer of metal cutting tools, understands this well. With a rich history dating back to 1942, Sandvik Coromant has established itself as a global leader in the industry, serving over 100,000 customers worldwide.

However, their success isn't just about cutting-edge technology; it's also about the partnerships they forge along the way. Sandvik Coromant's recent collaboration with Elevated Industrial Solutions, an authorized distributor of Kaeser Compressors, exemplifies the power of working with the right partner.

Facing challenges with their aging compressed air system in Westminster, South Carolina, Sandvik Coromant knew they needed a partner who could provide tailored solutions to meet their specific needs. Elevated Industrial Solutions stepped up to the plate, approaching the project with a deep understanding of Sandvik Coromant's requirements and a commitment to delivering results.

The collaboration began with a comprehensive air study using Kaeser's Air Demand Analysis, which identified opportunities for substantial energy savings. The proposed solution, meticulously designed by the teams at Elevated Industrial Solutions and Kaeser, included state-of-the-art rotary screw compressors, dryers, and a SmartPipe distribution system.


One of the key aspects of the project was integrating the compressed air system into Sandvik Coromant's Building Management System (BMS). This required expertise and innovative solutions, which Kaeser's Sigma Air Manager (SAM) 4.0 provided, enabling seamless communication and data exchange between the equipment and the BMS.

Throughout the installation process, collaboration remained paramount, with both teams working hand in hand to overcome challenges and ensure the project's success. Despite the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was completed within the expected timeframe, thanks to the dedication and expertise of all involved.

The results speak volumes. Sandvik Coromant estimates annual energy savings of nearly $90,000, surpassing initial projections. With a scalable and adaptable system now in place, they are well-equipped to achieve their sustainability goals and drive their business forward.

This partnership between Sandvik Coromant, Elevated Industrial Solutions, and Kaeser is a testament to the power of collaboration. By working together, these companies have not only optimized efficiency and reduced costs but have also demonstrated a commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship.

In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, finding the right partner is more critical than ever. Sandvik Coromant's success story serves as a reminder of the transformative impact that collaboration can have, paving the way for a more sustainable future for all.
