Kennametal has introduced the new Grooving Universal Positive Profiling geometry (GUP-V), expanding on its Beyond Evolution grooving and cut-off platform. With the addition of the new V-shaped single-sided insert, the Beyond Evolution range can now cover more applications than ever and reduce tooling costs for customers.
Robert Keilmann, Kennametal product manager, said: “Since the introduction of the Beyond Evolution platform, we have continued to focus on enhancing its versatility, and the new GUP-V multi-directional profiling insert is no exception.
“Together with the other insert geometries, users can now groove, cut off, face, and turn a wide variety of materials with just a single tooling system. Simply put, when a customer adopts Beyond Evolution for their turning needs, they do not need anything else — it is that versatile.”
Like all other Beyond Evolution inserts in the range, the new GUP-V profiling insert leverages a proprietary Triple-V seating design that features contact on the top, bottom, and back of the insert, providing superior rigidity that results in excellent surface finishes and dimensional accuracy while at the same time delivering the highest possible metal removal rates.
