Kennametal’s (Latrobe, PA) KSOM Mini face-milling platform comes as close as possible to a “one size fits all” metalworking solution due to high-quality, direct-pressed carbide inserts together with a new positive geometry that significantly boosts performance in roughing aluminum, cast iron, stainless steels, or high-temperature alloys. The platform saves time and money for anyone roughing and milling multiple materials, such as gray cast iron and steels in automotive, or stainless steels and aluminum in general engineering. With selected carbide grades and edge preparations for numerous applications, the KSOM Mini platform comprises a comprehensive range of cutters and inserts with a 25-degree clearance angle and eight cutting edges on the inserts. Applicable functions include face milling, ramping, and helical ramping from solid, slotting and plunging. Axial depth of cut is 3.50 mm (0.140 in.) using all eight edges, and temporary axial depth of cut can be up to 9.0 mm (0.354 in.) using four edges.
