As a world-leading industrial manufacturer, Kennametal knows the importance of quality ingredients and quality production methods. We bring that knowledge and quality-orientation to our customers.
A vertically integrated manufacturer, we control the entire manufacturing process from powder production to finished product. We produce metallurgical powders for use in manufacturing these tools as well as a wide range of powders for specialized markets.
Our powders include metal carbides and nitrides, hardfacing powders, matrix powders for diamond tools, and metal injection molding powders. We obtain raw materials worldwide, and manufacture powders through a variety of processes.
Some methods are unique and proprietary to Kennametal, including the production of macrocrystalline metal carbides (WC and TiC) via exothermic and menstruum processes.
As technological leaders, Kennametal scientists and engineers design and develop new tools and techniques to serve industry trends and new applications.
