What if there was a digital tool that could shorten your process planning time from hours to minutes?
And it had a tool advisor, a tool selector, and a tool configurator that would work with you step-by-step on your next part design?
And it had 75 years of machining expertise squeezed into it?
And … you could download it today?
Kennametal NOVO is all of this, and more. NOVO is an on-demand digital assistant that’s data-rich with machining strategies. It optimizes every step of process planning, from parts quoting, through programming, presetting, and production.
Our first digital tool powered by NOVO is the new desktop app, available for download at the NOVO website.
The desktop app is comprised of four main tools:
Tool advisor – a rules-based engine that provides cutting tool recommendations based on defined machining features, constraint requirements, and machining sequences (Ex.: “I need to make a 12mm hole x 40mm deep”)
- Tool selector – helps users select cutting tools from a tree structure via quick search, smart-filter search, and fits-with and works-with technology (Ex.: “I need a 20mm by 5xD solid carbide drill in grade KC7315”)
- Tool configurator – provides all CAD files and graphic support for all tool components and their assemblies … a major time saver!
- Job functionality – a cloud-based repository linked to a user by a unique ID. Store tool lists for future use, editing, copying, and sharing
You can use the app to define machining features to determine the best tools for the job, or search for a preferred tool and grade. NOVO’s smart filters shrink the tedious task of selecting ALL cutting tool components from hours to minutes. It ensures the tool list is comprehensive and correct.
NOVO makes sure you are getting the right tool for the right job, every time. NOVO Knows.
