Economies of Usable Cutting Tool Edges
Recent introductions from a major cutting tool maker illustrate the engineering and application of tools designed to deliver an increased number of useful edges.
Applications Advance for Solid Ceramic End Mills
All they need is speed! Tools for roughing nickel-based alloys can be used in the same processes as carbide tools, just with high rpm and no coolant.
Face Mill Achieves Full Engagement in CGI
Kennametal’s Mill 16 face mill is designed to tackle tough cast iron applications.
Milling Tool Provides Essentially Stepless Pocketing to 6.5 mm Deep
Kennametal’s Mill 4-11 indexable milling cutter is designed to provide accurate pocket positioning and the free cutting action of a single-sided insert at a cost per edge similar to a double-sided insert.
PCD Face Milling System’s Diameter Cuts Large Parts in Fewer Passes
The KBDM polycrystalline diamond (PCD) face milling system from Kennametal is designed for high-volume machining, with standard sizes ranging from 2.5" to 8.0" (63 to 200 mm) and cutter diameters ranging to 21.5" (550 mm).
Kennametal Partners with EWS Tool Technologies
The live tool and tool block manufacturer’s U.S. subsidiary is Command Tooling Systems.
Kennametal Director of Global Strategic Pricing Receives Honors
The Manufacturing Institute presented Cheryl Bush with the Women in Manufacturing STEP Award.
New Website Publicizes Generic Tool Format Information
The Generic Tool Catalog was developed by Siemens PLM, Sandvik Coromant, Iscar and Kennametal.
The ABCs of PECM
Kennametal is advocating Precision Electrochemical Machining (PECM) for lower cost per part, low electrode wear, fewer material hardness concerns and other benefits in producing complex geometrical shapes in metal.
ISO 13399—A Key Step Toward Data-Driven Manufacturing
Decisions about the cutting tools used in machining operations are arguably among the most important in modern manufacturing.
Where Were the Counters of Cutting Tools?
Visitors to IMTS 2014 may have noticed that some cutting tool manufacturers did not have row upon row of new product counters and tabletop displays in their booths. Why? Because the emphasis has shifted to data about cutting tools.
Rigid Spindle Interface with Tool-Locking Technology
Kennametal and Haimer have developed the KM4X spindle interface with Safe-Lock toolholder technology.
Modular Interface for Cutting Tool Heads
Haimer and Kennametal introduce the new modular Duo-Lock interface for carbide cutting tool heads.
Discussing Manufacturing’s Future
Earlier in the week, Kennametal presented in its booth (W-1522) an industry panel discussion about the future of manufacturing. Leading the presentation was Jim Carroll, author, who introduced the other panel members and initiated discussions about the importance of staying current on the latest industry trends and applications to keep pace with the accelerating movement of integrated digital manufacturing.
Solid Carbide Drill Can Replace PCD Drill for Aluminum
Kennametal’s HPS solid carbide drills are constructed of the company’s Beyond KN15 carbide, making them suitable for aluminum machining applications including holemaking.
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.
