Kennametal Expands KCP25C Turning Platform for Superior Performance

Kennametal Inc has expanded on its highest performing turning platform with additional inserts. The KCP25C platform features advanced coating technology KENGold™, which improves toughness, abrasion resistance, and consistency.

“The KCP25C turning platform has set a new standard with its performance, achieving higher metal removal rates and improved wear resistance. Growing the portfolio allows us to support customers’ ever-evolving needs and address their toughest machining challenges,” said Scott Etling, Vice President, Global Product Management, Kennametal.

The high performance turning platform now includes additional ISO turning inserts to complete the portfolio, Top Notch™ profiling inserts, and railroad turning inserts. Leveraging advanced pressing and honing technologies, Kennametal has achieved consistently tight tolerance levels with KENGold, the advanced coating technology that was introduced last year.

“This next-generation coating technology is multi-layer to not only protect against wear but act as a strong thermal barrier and resist chipping for more reliable, increased cutting speeds, higher metal removal rates, and consistent tool life,” adds Etling.

KCP25C is ideal for roughing, finishing, and medium finishing in general engineering, automotive, oil & gas, and wind & solar industries.
