New Product Announcement: Universal Turning Grade


Tool and material manufacturer Kennametal (Pittsburgh) has recently announced the launch of its KCU10B universal turning grade, an update to the KCU10 platform cutting technology.

According to the company’s release, the KCU10B features enhanced KENGold coating technology for edge protection. 

The multi-use cutting tool was reportedly designed for machinists in aerospace and defense, automotive, energy and general engineering markets that need maximum output when cutting “difficult-to-machine materials.”

"We engineered this new turning solution to excel in finishing applications across industries," said Scott Etling, Vice President of Marketing, Global Product Management. "Designed with our multilayer, nanostructure PVD coating technology, KCU10B supports machining with higher quality, consistent power on more materials and a longer tool life."

KCU10B will reportedly join the company's KENGold portfolio, aiming to deliver consistency in multi-material cutting, improved wear resistance and enhanced process security.

The new coating technology was introduced last year with Kennametal's KCP25C turning grade, setting a new standard for the company’s steel turning applications.
