Kennametal’s Beyond inserts for its FixPerfect system are designed to improve toughness, wear-resistance and increase turning productivity. The FixPerfect system features a proprietary-shaped pocket that, together with a clamping stud, locking pin and tangentially mounted, precision-ground insert, provides high clamping forces and low cutting forces for increased chip control and improved process stability. The FixPerfect inserts are shaped to match the pocket, which protects unused cutting edges. To index the insert, the FixPerfect pin can be loosened, not removed, which increases productivity.
 

The Beyond inserts for FixPerfect feature micro-polished edges, a post-coat treatment that reduces depth-of-cut notching, and a fine-grained alumina layer that enhances coating integrity at higher cutting speeds, the company says.
