Discover More—And I Did
The time I spent at the Discover More with Mazak Midwest event in Schaumburg, Ill. was designed to help attendees discover new tools and techniques for staying ahead of the manufacturing curve. Here are four good ideas that caught my attention.
MSC Adds Kennametal Cutting Tools
An additional 15,000 Kennametal cutting tools are now available from MSC Industrial Supply.
Successful Open House for Cardinal Manufacturing
Cardinal Manufacturing, a high school manufacturing program, raised more than $10,000 in a recent open house.
The Challenges of Machining Glass-Filled Plastics
Plastics reinforced with glass present more machining variables to manage than conventional metals. This shop has developed a process to overcome those challenges and has become more adroit at short-run work along the way.
Clamping System, Grades Enable Efficient Cast Iron Machining
Kennametal’s Beyond Shield system combines new PCBN grades with a carbide-clad clamp said to offer improved wear-resistance from chip flow for increased efficiency in machining cast iron.
Haimer to Provide Kennametal Spindle Connection
The spindle connection is designed to provide high clamping force.
What it Takes to Tackle Tungsten
When this aerospace job shop settled on machining tungsten alloys and other heavy metals as its specialty, it had to have a machine tool, cutting tools, workholding and process know-how to succeed.
Kennametal Recognized For Ethical Corporate Culture
Cutting tool manufacturer Kennametal has been named as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by The Ethisphere Institute. A look at the factors on which this award is based shows that ethics is more than adhering to a strict code of ethics in a corporate handbook.
iPad App Enables Product Comparison
The Kennametal Innovations app for the iPad features interactive animations and real-world demonstrations of the company’s technology in use.
Savings from Sustainability
A project aimed at energy-efficient machining delivered production efficiencies, too.
Mold and Die as Key Indicator Brings Forth New Cutting Tool Technology
As a single industry, mold and die serves multiple industrial segments. And with a global footprint that yields a high-pressure environment demanding the most up-to-date technology, it’s firmly established as a strong indicator of the manufacturing base.
Spindle Connection Delivers Maximum Metal Removal
Kennametal’s next-generation spindle connection, the KM4X, is designed for machining tough materials, such as titanium.
Kennametal, Chip Ganassi Racing Teams Renew Partnership
Cutting tool manufacturer Kennametal (Latrobe, Pennsylvania) has announced a multi-year renewal of its machining technology partnership with Chip Ganassi Teams (CGRT). The renewal of the relationship, which began in 1993, occurs in the wake of Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon’s first and second-place finishes at the 2012 Indianapolis 500.
A Systems Approach for Successful Titanium Machining
Coolant delivery, spindle connection and dynamic response all are part of a tooling formula for milling this metal productively.
Matching Manufacturing Perceptions with Realities
A survey suggests the public continues to view manufacturing in a negative light, despite evidence to the contrary.
Poll Reveals Public’s Manufacturing Misconceptions
A recent poll conducted by cutting tool manufacturer Kennametal shows a wide gap between the public’s perception of manufacturing and the facts about the sector’s current strength and future viability. According to the survey, 65 percent of Americans believe manufacturing jobs are desirable, high-paying and high-tech, and 70 percent believe manufacturing jobs are important for domestic job creation.
Kennametal CEO Speaks at National Press Club
Carlos Cardoso emphasizes manufacturing careers and the need for manufacturers to more-actively educate young people about these opportunities.
Kennametal CEO Tapped for PA Manufacturing Council
Taps Target Wind Energy Applications
