The same workpiece drawing has left you staring into space for hours, and to say the least, you’re far past the point of agitation. You feel pressured to have the project completed, but there’s an entire string of questions to answer before you can even think about getting started. “Which features do I handle first? How many passes do I need to mill this face? Can I hit a 32 finish with a roughing tool? Should I use a pilot drill?”
Typically, the Kennametal Master Catalog or NOVO would be enough to get you by. But this isn’t a typical situation you are facing. This project is much larger and far more detailed than anything you’ve ever experienced before. Just the thought of searching through 1,500 pages for the correct tool seems impossible…
But nothing should be impossible.
Introducing: The Kennametal Program Engineering Team
Our multi-talented Program Engineers, part of the Global Engineered Solutions Team, specialize in projects similar to the one mentioned above. Structured to meet your needs, Program Engineers operate with a “inception to completion” mentality.
What do we mean by “inception to completion?”
From the moment your request is processed, to the day you produce your very first quality part, we’ll have someone by your side. Ranging from a package of simple “between sizes” drills, to a 250 insert modular milling cutter, our team will design cutting tools centered to your specific application.
We’ll Take It From Here
We’ll have your tools assembled, preset, balanced, and delivered right to your doorstep, for out-of-the-box (and ready to run) convenience. We understand that something like assembling and presetting tools isn’t your favorite part of the job, so we’re just going to do that for you.
If you work with an integrator, or perhaps through a supplier, we welcome third-parties throughout the entire process for a seamless transition to your facility.
And one last thing: If you’re planning to purchase a brand-new machine for an upcoming project, we specialize in working alongside machine tool builders to offer you a turnkey package.
So, That’s a Wrap!
If you’re thinking, hands-free and stress-free project execution? That’s right. Anything is possible. Leveraging all of Kennametal’s expertise and the latest innovations, our Program Engineers are ready to tackle your toughest application.
