As Seen In Production Machining

Tooling System Reduces Setup Time So Shop Stays Competitive
Turret adapted clamping units and quick-change tooling systems have helped a company use its new turning centers more effectively, so it can win new business in a competitive environment.

Turning insert

KBH10 Hard Turning Inserts Provide Rxtreme Wear Resistance
Kennametal Inc.’s KBH10 polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PcBN) hard turning inserts provide wear resistance needed to turn hardened metals up to 65Rc, especially where very fine surface finishes are required. 

BMT turret

Turret-Adapted Clamping Unit Provides High Clamping Forces
In place of the standard turret tooling available on CNC lathes, the KM product line of turret-adapted clamping units from Kennametal and EWS Tool is designed to improve shopfloor efficiency.

KNS cutter

 KNS Cutter Platform Reduces Waste
Kennametal’s KNS slotting platform can be used across a range of cutting applications, including by automakers, equipment manufacturers and power generation and electronics companies. 

Modular drill

KenTIP FS Competes with Range of Solid Carbide Drills
Kennametal’s KenTIP FS is a 6-mm to 26-mm, 1.5 to 12 × D modular drill that’s designed for ease of use and producing good hole quality. It can compete with solid carbide drills across a range of materials, according to the company.

Mastercam and Kennametal

Mastercam and Kennametal Partner to Provide Tool Automation
CNC Software Inc., developers of Mastercam, has partnered with Kennametal Inc. to provide customers with the ability to import tool assemblies from NOVO directly into Mastercam 2018, allowing Mastercam customers to save time searching and building 3D tool assemblies. 

Milling grade

Indexable Milling Grade Provides Thermal Fatigue Resistance
Kennametal’s KCSM40 indexable milling grade has an cobalt binder that provides thermal fatigue resistance and a proprietary AlTiN/TiN coating that enhances the wear resistance at the cutting edge.

Mill 16

Mill 16 Face Mill Handles Difficult-To-Machine Applications
Kennametal’s Mill 16 is for face milling applications such as compacted graphite iron, or CGI. CGI is difficult to machine and requires cutting tools both tough and wear-resistant.


The Next Step in Setup Reduction
Quick-change modular tooling is a clear way to increase productivity, shorten setup time and generally improve the bottom line for job shops and large manufacturers alike.

Digital Tool Management Optimizes Shop Productivity
Although new methods for digital access to information are constantly being developed, the principle behind these systems is that every employee should have access to tool data.

Kennametal Expands Modular Tooling Line
A new partnership between Kennametal and EWS Tool Technologies will work toward making driven tool setup both fast and accurate.

‘Someday’ has a Happy Ending
After discussing various aerospace machining issues, the Kennametal representative turned Stellar Precision Components on to a solid ceramic end mill for difficult, nickel-based alloys often found in aerospace.

Kennametal Supports a Good Cause
Charitable corporate giving can make a difference in the local community as well as the world at large. Here’s an example of one company that’s committed to giving back.

Ceramic End Mills Helps Shop Meet Delivery Date
Stellar delivered the parts on time with zero scrap and is now quoting a second, even larger order.

Making the Cut
As this short case study illustrates, Kennametal’s grooving and cutoff tools provide more precise chip control and extended tool life.

Kennametal's Cheryl Bush Receives Women in Manufacturing STEP Award
The STEP Awards recognize women at all levels, from the factory floor to the C-suite, who have demonstrated leadership excellence in modern manufacturing.

Grooving, Cutoff and Multidirectional Turning
This single-sided tool is designed to handle a range of applications, including cutoff, grooving, deep grooving, face grooving, side turning and profiling, in a single platform, simplifying the tooling selection process.

Greenleaf Corp. Names Global Manager, Tech Team and Marketing
Greenleaf Corp., a developer of cutting tool technology and ceramic materials, has appointed Jan Andersson to the position of global manager, tech team and marketing.

Generic Tool Catalog Developed by Siemens PLM, Sandvik Coromant, Iscar and Kennametal
The GTC format is available to all tool vendors and application developers, enabling them to share cutting tool data more easily and precisely.

Indexable Milling Grade KCSM30 for Machining High-Temperature Alloys
With approximately 25-percent longer tool life, the KCSM30 milling grade from Kennametal directly reduces cost per part for shops working on titanium.
