Engineered Wear Products - Metalcutting Inserts

Supplier: Kennametal

Demanding wear and engineering applications require exceptional performance from tungsten carbide and ceramic products.


These rigorous applications require specialized parts that offer long life, maintain tolerance through multiple-use cycles, and deliver superior overall performance. Kennametal is focused on delivering value to our customers for these special applications.

We produce a variety of custom-made preformed, unfinished, and finished tools for these special applications. Our flexible manufacturing capability allows us to handle everything from the simplest parts to custom fabrication of the most complex shapes.

Our application specialists work closely with you to deliver the right tool for the job by evaluating your requirements and gaining insight into your process and application.

Many preformed parts can ship within seven to 10 business days following receipt of your order. Kennametal is a global leader in providing premier tooling solutions with advanced engineering materials.

Our technology centers provide a constant stream of new grades and new products that solve severe wear problems, extend product durability, improve process productivity, and lower overall cost. We focus on building long-term customer relationships by providing value and performance.

Metalcutting Inserts

Kennametal offers complete line of cutting tool blank grades and styles. Our wide selection of tungsten carbide grades ranges 5.5 percent to 12 percent cobalt binders, and from medium grains for heavy and interrupted cuts, to micro-grain and sub-micron grain sizes for maximum wear life.

We offer straight tungsten carbide cobalt binder grades for Class C1-C4 cast iron and non-ferrous machining, and mixed tungsten carbide grades with additives of titanium carbide, tantalum carbide, and niobium carbide for Class C5-C8 grades to machine all types of steel.

These steel cutting grades resist the chemical attached during the machining process. We manufacture a large variety of blank styles such as K1000, STB, for brazed tools and form tools, and standard indexable insert blanks like, SNR, SPR, TNR, TNRA, TNRC, TPR, TPS, UVDB, plus special geometries custom engineered to your specifications.

Most inserts are pressed to size with minimum grind stock to keep your grinding costs low.
