Kennametal is proud to announce KCPM15™, the first Beyond grade for solid carbide end mills. Featuring an improved high-performance carbide substrate with proprietary aluminum titanium nitride (AlTiN) PVD coating, KCPM15 is engineered to deliver up to 30% longer tool life milling steels and stainless steels due to improved resistance to cratering, flank wear, and depth of cut notch.
The new Kennametal Beyond KCPM15™ solid carbide end mill line will target stainless steels and steel applications. The offering includes geometries for finishing and roughing applications as well as ballnose tools for profiling applications.
The main focus for the new offering will be the general engineering market as well as the aerospace market.
