KENGold™ coated KCP25C grade sets a new standard for wear and productivity in steel turning

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT), a leader in metal cutting tools and solutions, has introduced a new higher-performance turning grade with advanced coating technology. KCP25C with KENGold™ is the first choice for metal cutting inserts with improved wear and higher metal removal rates for steel turning applications.

"Our high-performance KCP25C inserts with KENGold coating technology set a new standard for machinists working in a wide variety of steel turning applications," said Scott Etling, vice president of Global Product Management. This benchmark turning insert offers double performance: higher removal rates and increased wear resistance, which means our customers can machine longer, more productively and more efficiently than ever before. In addition, the gold flank of the insert makes it easy to visually identify wear, maximizes edge usage and reduces waste."

KCP25C is the first choice carbide grade for turning inserts in general purpose applications in a variety of steel materials and offers consistent and repeatable performance. KENGold is a patented multi-layer coating technology with improved pre- and post-coating processes that provides an effective thermal barrier for increased resistance to crater wear typically experienced in these types of machining applications.
