The Beyond line of turning products from Kennametal now includes two new geometries in round inserts.

The new geometries – Roughing Universal (RU) and Universal Positive (UP) – offer improved productivity in turning steels, stainless steels, cast irons and high-temperature alloys.

Alexander Momm, global product manager of turning products at Kennametal, said: ‘Engineered specifically to deliver improved chip control at lower cutting forces, these new geometries mean excellent size control, superior surface finishes, reduced load spikes on capital equipment and a longer tool life.

‘Manufacturing new railroad wheels or re-profiling existing wheels are great examples of heavy-duty industries that will significantly benefit from these new products,’ he added.

The RU geometry features a proprietary wavy design with the optimised size and spacing of the chip-breaking element.

This contributes to improved chip control at lower cutting forces, resulting in a longer tool life and a higher performance in heavy-duty roughing tasks.

The UP geometry is designed for medium machining and finishing and also features a chip-breaker design with the optimised size and spacing of the chip-breaking element for improved performance, according to the company.

As both new geometries are available in Beyond grades, they provide high edge strength and a longer tool life.

Both geometries are available in Kennametal’s Fix-Perfect or traditional pin-clamping styles.
