Endless. Incessant. Perpetual.
But at Kennametal, we see these words as a good thing. We see them for what they really mean. Long lasting. Continuous. Sustainable.
The redesigned KSRM Indexable Milling Platform encompasses all of this, and more. It is a long-lasting milling cutter that’s primarily used in the aerospace industry and designed for machining titanium parts and turbine blades (as well as other metals in multiple applications).
The improved 12mm and 16mm inserts and cutter blades have longevity and reliability. The PVD inserts are polished, which gives them up to 30% longer tool life than unpolished inserts. This also reduces the overall risk of premature failure due to built-up edge. The 12mm inserts are high precision pressed and sintered to size, and the new geometry significantly improves tool life. The anti-rotation feature is now directly machined in the steel pocket, which improves pocket tool life while increasing its effectiveness.
The improved KSRM platform is designed for the same longevity as the long-lasting aerospace parts it machines.
