The innovative Beyond™ platform of high-performance tool grades from Kennametal (Latrobe, PA) has garnered exceptional reviews from customers worldwide for their long life and exceptional performance. Now Kennametal is introducing the first Beyond inserts for Kennametal’s ground-breaking FixPerfect™ system, promising improved toughness and wear-resistance, resulting in higher turning productivity and safety.

The FixPerfect system features a proprietary shaped pocket that, together with a clamping stud, locking pin, and tangentially mounted precision ground insert, result in high clamping forces and very low cutting forces for excellent chip control and improved process stability. The FixPerfect inserts are shaped to match the pocket, which protects unused cutting edges. Productivity improves as well because the FixPerfect pin simply needs to be loosened, not removed, to index the insert.

The new Beyond inserts for FixPerfect share the breakthrough performance characteristics of the entire Beyond line—micro-polished edges that improve edge toughness, proprietary post-coat treatment that reduces depth-of-cut notching, and a fine-grained alumina layer that enhances coating integrity at higher cutting speeds.
