March 31, 2014 - Consisting of taper-press retention system that requires only single spare part for backup, KPL/KPR302 System offers long gauge length, which minimizes power requirements for road milling. Longer wear length translates into extended milling before maintenance is required. Tools and holders are designed for all road milling applications and cutting conditions, particularly for profile milling with cuts greater than 6 in.

More miles and better performance

Raise milling efficiency and reduce drag with Kennametalīs new KPL/ KPR302 system. Investigating new tooling systems can be an extremely valuable experience for road builders. This is because new systems should lead to improved efficiencies, and improved efficiencies lead to more miles and better performance of critical road-building equipment. With increased cutting action and decreased cutter drag, the new KPL and KPR 302 system from Kennametal delivers that sought-after value on many levels. Specifically, a longer gauge length on the new KPL and KPR 302 block system for road milling drums reduces power requirements for road milling. At the same time, the systemīs 20 percent longer wear length translates into more time milling before maintenance is required. Overall, conveyance capacity is improved by 50 percent while reducing drag on the cutter. Kennametalīs KPL and KPR 302 system is a taper-press retention system that installs quickly and reliably and requires only a single spare part for backup. Other road milling tool systems are comprised of threaded milling system components. This not only means more replacement parts to purchase and stock, but also threading them into place at the required torque level and verifying installation to ensure adequate performance.  KPL and KPR 302 tools and holders are designed for all road milling applications and cutting conditions, particularly for profile milling with cuts greater than six inches (150 mm). In short, the harder your equipment works, the greater the efficiency gain. Doing more with less and aggressively seeking new ways to stretch budget dollars are how many road building businesses respond to a tough economic climate. Kennametalīs KPL and KPR 302 holder system is a great way to improve both equipment and bottom-line performance. For more information, visit www.kennametal.com.
