Kennametal (Latrobe, PA) offers three geometries

across two Beyond™ carbide grades that

augment its range of face-grooving inserts and

tooling for small-diameter internal and external

applications.

Available as precision-ground and molded

styles in both flat-edge and full-radius facegrooving

geometries, A4-S inserts are the latest

additions to Kennametal’s new Beyond™ line of

milling and turning tools. They are aimed at face

grooving on parts from 16–58 mm (0.630–2.284

inches) in diameter and groove depths from

12–19 mm (0.47–0.75 inches).

Users can choose from three chipbreaker

geometries aimed at providing longer tool life

with more consistent tool wear, faster materialremoval

rates, and improved chip control across

a range of face grooving applications and work

materials. GMN inserts provide a stable cutting

edge, while GMP and GUP chipbreakers feature

positive geometry for reduced cutting forces.

Inserts are coupled with a comprehensive

portfolio of modular and systems toolholders

including boring bars for maximum versatility.

KM or Capto tooling options provide stable, reliable

toolholding in machining aerospace components,

pump and engine parts, and general

industrial components, among many others.
