Kennametal Introduces Beyond Drive Cutting Tool Inserts

Kennametal Inc. has introduced new Beyond Drive cutting tool inserts. New Beyond Drive cutting tool inserts from Kennametal are helping component suppliers expand and thrive in this environment with enhanced performance and extended tool life that mean many more finished pieces per cutting edge. Specifically designed for cast irons, steels, and stainless steels that make up many critical components over a variety of industries, Kennametal's new Beyond Drive inserts are a product of ongoing design leadership, engineering, materials science, and manufacturing directly targeted to the needs of component manufacturers. Like all of Kennametal's Beyond line of products, Beyond Drive inserts feature a proprietary post-coat surface treatment that improves edge toughness, reliability, and depth-of-cut notch resistance, and a micro-polished surface to reduce friction and workpiece sticking (BUE). A fine-grained alumina layer allows for increases in cutting speed, improving productivity and reliability at high cutting temperatures. With Beyond Drive, adding a new titanium oxy-carbonitride outer coating (TiOCN) not only increases wear- and abrasion-resistance, its bronze color is also an effective wear indicator. Depending on the application, field tests are showing anywhere between 30% and 125% more parts per edge. All new Beyond inserts are CVD (chemical vapor deposition) coated, but whereas conventional CVD coatings are under tensile stress, Beyond inserts undergo a proprietary post-coat treatment on all surfaces to reduce this stress, which improves coating adhesion and reduces micro-chipping. More uniform and reliable wear of the cutting edge results in improved and more consistent tool life. Beyond Drive is available in eight grades and numerous insert styles, covering a complete range of applications for turning steel and cast iron components.
