Superior Carbide Tooling Technology

Carbide tooling was first widely adopted in the late 1960s. From the 70s through the 90s, it really gained momentum as the technology evolved. A task that used to take 30 minutes could be reduced to 2 as powder technology improved. But by the early 2000s, many of the gains in powder technology had been maximized. While most of the players in the industry backed off on the innovation front, Kennametal recognize opportunities to continue improving performance with coating technologies, and they’ve been continually tweaking coating for the past two decades.

Today, Kennametal continues to deliver cutting edge technology, introducing new grades of carbide and coating, along with new geometric cutting designs. It’s that commitment to innovation that has set them apart in the industry.
