Machinery & Machining Tools

Milling Grade accelerates high-temperature alloy machining.

April 30, 2014

Available in face milling, copy milling, and shoulder milling platforms, KCSM30 combines fine-grained carbide substrate for strength and stability with TiAlN PVD coating for wear resistance. Product lets shops increase cutting speeds to 230 sfm and is also available in Beyond Blast composition, where integral coolant channels deliver coolant through insert to cutting edge under chip. Coolant is only delivered in insert quadrant actually cutting, allowing inserts to remain indexable. Read More

Wear-Resistant Skis protect road milling machinery.

April 4, 2014

Super C™ or KenCast™ skis deliver wear protection for replacement skis for road milling machines. Super C chromium carbide overlay suits applications requiring optimal abrasion resistance with moderate impact. Welding process produces hexagonal chromium carbides (M7C3), which contribute to wear resistance in sliding abrasive applications. For higher wear protection, KenCast composite material offers wear resistance of tungsten carbide and toughness and weldability of steel. Read More

Fine-Boring System achieves closed-loop operation.

June 21, 2013

Allowing users to dial in tolerances while tool is mounted in machine tool, Romicron® systems produce high-accuracy holes at high RPMs. Users can produce finish bores with tolerances of few microns in diameter and bore-to-bore variations of few tenths of one micron. Using cartridges or boring bars, every tool can be adjusted in diameter via dial ring in 2 micron increments to achieve close tolerances. Romicron AVS tooling covers 0.984–3.11 in. dia and can run in spindles up to 20,000 rpm. Read More
