Cutting Tool Inserts support cast iron and steel turning.

October 17, 2014

Featuring bronze TiOCN top coating that offers wear resistance and functions as wear indicator, Beyond Drive™ Inserts are designed for turning cast irons, steels, and stainless steels. Post-coat surface treatment optimizes edge toughness and depth-of-cut notch resistance, while micro-polished surface minimizes friction and workpiece sticking. In addition, fine-grained alumina layer allows for increases in cutting speed and reliability at high cutting temperatures. Read More


Process Planning Software helps optimize productivity.

September 30, 2014

Offering cloud-enabled digital tooling and intelligence, NOVOsphere™ seamlessly interfaces with production, inventory, and e-commerce to optimize shop productivity. Part of NOVOsphere, NOVO™ Optimize collects real-time data on how cutting tools and machines are performing and provides analysis of where process efficiencies or capacity improvements are available. All data and process knowledge complies with MTConnect open, extensible, communications protocol designed for shop-floor environment. Read More

Indexable Milling Grade aids high-temperature alloy machining.

June 25, 2014

Available in face, copy, and shoulder milling platforms, KCSM30 enables shops to increase cutting speeds to 230 sfm while increasing tool life and accelerating milling of titanium. Fine-grained carbide substrate promotes strength and stability, while TiAlN PVD coating delivers wear resistance. Grade is also available in Beyond Blast composition, where integral coolant channels deliver coolant through insert precisely to cutting edge under chip to optimize reduction of heat and friction.

Road Milling Machine Skis offer wear protection.

April 29, 2014

Intended for road milling contractors, Super C™ chromium carbide overlay is rated for applications requiring abrasion resistance with moderate impact, good formability, and weldability. KenCast™ composite material combines wear resistance of tungsten carbide with toughness and weldability of steel. Both enable road milling skis to last hundreds of hours. Read More

Solid Carbide Microdrill can serve diverse applications.

April 28, 2014

Built on KC7325™ solid carbide grade, GOdrill™ is designed for 0.0394–0.5 in. dia holes and works with multiple materials. Marginless design reduces friction and heat, and multilayer TiAlN-based coating allows for high-heat hardness. Second TiN top layer serves as visual wear indicator. Available in solid (flood coolant) or through-coolant options, drills also feature straight cutting lip with protection chamfer that ensures even distribution of cutting forces. Read More

Block-Bit System optimizes trenching and foundation drilling.

April 1, 2014

Featuring internal groove in block bore, RockRazor™ Block and Bit System accommodates 3 retainer styles and 6 rotating or non-rotating bits. Not only can rotating bits be quickly swapped out with non-rotating bits when applications or conditions change, non-rotating flat-spade bits can be indexed in up to 4 positions for maximum productivity. At tip end, proprietary point designs combine with advanced carbide grades, resulting in minimized cracking and extended performance in abrasive conditions. Read More

Quick-Change Block System maximizes uptime.

March 31, 2014

For surface mining and trenching machines, no-weld QC42 Quick Change Block System cuts time needed to change block from machine base from 60–90 min down to 10–15 min. System features 1070 spring steel retainer that provides added safety feature to keep unit together when not fully engaged from tapered press fit. Rubber bumper stops keep block from over-locking, while hardfaced block face ensures optimal conical rotation and minimizes wear. Read More
