Sandvik Coromant has bolstered its digital machining offering by appointing Albert Waloni as Digital Machining Manager for Southeast Asia and Oceania (SEAO), a brand-new role for the region. From Sandvik Coromant’s facility in Jakarta, Indonesia, Waloni will be responsible for raising Sandvik Coromant’s profile as an expert in digital machining, supporting a core growth area for the business.
After graduating with a mechanical engineering degree from Atmajaya University in Jakarta in 2005, Waloni began a career at Sandvik Group, where he worked for Sandvik Machining Solutions division, helping factories to increase productivity and save costs.
In 2012, Waloni joined Sandvik’s Coromant division working in various roles such as Machine Investments, Distribution and recently as Regional Sales Manager in Indonesia. Now, Waloni has been appointed as Digital Machining Manager — a new job role created by Sandvik Coromant.
“Research and advances in technology have allowed us to expand into digital technology solutions”, said Waloni, Digital Machining Manager for SEAO at Sandvik Coromant. “Although Sandvik Coromant is recognised globally as a tooling company, we believe we can broaden our solutions by helping customers with our digital machining offering. Our solutions can be implemented in design and planning, tool preparation, in machining and post machining.
“My new role will involve communicating such solutions to customers in automotive, aerospace, oil and gas and general engineering industries across SEAO. Besides this, I will also educate our team and customers on the benefits and qualities of the digital machining solutions we offer. For instance, some customers aren’t aware that we offer software solutions related to cloud computing or that others can enhance the capabilities of computer-aided manufacturing (CAM),” he continued.
“Albert’s experience, both in and outside of Sandvik, has positioned him with superb machine tools knowledge”, said Melda Siregar, Senior Marketing Specialist for SEAO at Sandvik Coromant. “His engineering background and multiple managerial roles give him the skills to lead this new digital role at Sandvik Coromant, helping to equip both colleagues and customers with the tools required for a digital future.”
