Everyone’s heard the expression, “Don’t reinvent the wheel”. For many, this means “Don’t waste your time trying to change something that works fine the way it is.” For these people, it means doing things the way they’ve always been done to get the job done.
For us, it means something different. It means a need for “Different Thinking”. We know that, sometimes, ideas need to be revisited. And, sometimes, it means ideas need to be reinvented.
Take drilling holes. With our different way of thinking, holemaking is more than just drilling holes.
So we decided to reinvent holemaking with our expanded Holemaking portfolio :
The Romicron™ Fine-Boring PCD Tooling Portfolio — all the diameters you need, from 4mm–213mm.
The GOdrill™ — Kennametal’s first microdrill that works with multiple applications and materials. Perfect for hole diameters starting at only 1mm.
HTS Drill Heads fitted with pilot drills and cartridges using Drill Fix™ DFT™ inserts.
The ModBORE Fine-Boring System uses standard ISO and ANSI turning inserts.
Without such different thinking, holemaking might be, well, just simply drilling holes.
