Kennametal’s Beyond platform of tool grades includes inserts for hole-making applications, with three grades available: KCPK10, KCU25, and KCU40. The product covers SPPX/SPGX Drill Fix Square (DFS) outboard inserts; the units come in HP, FP, and MD geometries. The DFS indexable drill platform offers the economy of a square insert having four edges in the outside pocket combined with the good centering and high feed ability of a DFT trigon insert. Achieving 20% or higher material removal rate (MRR) at the same tool life as standard inserts, the KCPK10 grade offers good abrasion and crater-wear resistance for high-speed machining of steels and cast irons. With 20% or higher MMR and a 30% extended tool life, KCU25 is suited for processes at high speeds and feeds, delivering good reliability in steels, stainless steels, and cast irons. With a multi-layered PVD TiN-TiAlN coating and a tough substrate, the KCU40 grade delivers double the tool life at equivalent material removal rates for standard inserts.
