Ultimate production tools for foundation drilling

New KF Series foundation drilling portfolio features quick-change tapered-seating design.

From monumental civil engineering projects such as dams and bridges to the foundations of major buildings, drilled shafts occupy a fundamental and vital role in many earthworks and heavy-construction industries. Whether itīs solid rock or wet slop, drilling the right holes in the right places requires the right knowledge coupled with the right equipment and the right tools.

Kennametal, the worldīs leading provider of wear-resistant products and applications engineering, recognizes the foundation for successful drilling is built on rock-solid reliability and progress. Thatīs why the company is proudly introducing a new platform of foundation drilling products — the KF Series.

Complementary to Kennametalīs existing portfolio of foundation drilling tools and products, the KF Series covers the majority of core barrel applications and is ideal anywhere foundation drilling is being done, especially deep foundation of large-diameter bore holes.

Quick Change Holder System
Drilling with core barrels, material fines compact into the seating area of the tooth and holder interface, causing galling. Parallel seating design makes tooth replacement difficult and requires a special hydraulic removal tool. Kennametalīs new KF Seriesī tapered-seating design provides a strong seating area and easy removal -- just a small hit and the tool comes out easily. Safety and serviceability improve while reducing downtime changing teeth.

In addition to quick-change tool holders and tools, the entire KF series includes duo-cut and single-cut wall cutters, welding bar tools and teeth, modular pilot drills and modular pilot drill holders - all characterized by exceptionally tough cutting designed for use in all foundation drilling conditions. The results are high productivity and performance, fast and easy tool changes, and less downtime, all equating to more time drilling and getting the work done.

The new KF Series is featured in Kennametal's new foundation drilling catalog, with complete ordering information, dimensions and drawings, and detailed images on the KF-series cutting tools as well as recommended guidelines for installation and use. For more information, visit www.kennametal.com.
