With approximately 25-percent longer tool life, the KCSM30 milling grade from Kennametal directly reduces cost per part for shops working on titanium. With a fine-grained carbide substrate for strength and stability, together with a TiAlN PVD coating for excellent wear resistance, not only are tools lasting longer, but shops are also able to increase cutting speeds, up to 230 sfm (70 m/min).

Because of titanium’s high strength, thermal management is extremely important in managing and prolonging tool life. KCSM30 is also available in Kennametal’s Beyond Blast composition, where integral coolant channels deliver coolant through the insert precisely to the cutting edge under the chip, where it does the most good reducing heat and friction while increasing productivity. In addition, coolant is only delivered in the insert quadrant that is doing the actual cutting, allowing the inserts to remain indexable for maximum use.
