Kennametal has introduced its newest and most advanced turning grade, KCS10B, for nickel, cobalt and iron-based superalloys used in aerospace and other high temperature applications.
KCS10B, which features a revolutionary coating applied to an ultra-fine grain carbide substrate for superior layer adhesion, delivers up to 50% greater tool life, more predictable processes, and improved productivity when working with difficult to machine superalloys. KCS10B overcomes the most common challenges encountered in turning superalloys – cratering and depth-of-cut notching – two wear modes that often lead to unexpected and even
catastrophic tool failure.
KCS10B is available in the most popular turning insert shapes, sizes, and geometries special sputtering. Robert Keilmann, senior global product manager for turning, explains that the secret behind the success of KCS10B is Kennametal´s proprietary High-Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (High-PIMS) technology. Rather than
the light rain of droplets that fall on cutting tools during traditional PVD coating processes. High-PIMS generates a fine mist of AlTiN, building a series of extremely thin, smooth, and wear-resistant layers.
