TRANSFORM Your Workflow

NOVO™ provides the digital power to get information quicker than ever before. The result is the benefit of knowing that you have the right tool to do the job.

The Tool Advisor uses a rules based approach to provide cutting tool recommendations based on machining features (e.g. shoulder, pocket, blind hole, etc.), and their requirements (e.g. geometric, material, tolerance, etc.) while considering machining sequences (e.g. single operation, rough then finish, or multistep operations).
NOVO™ then ranks these results based on proprietary Kennametal knowledge to best meet the challenges of the application as defined by customer requirements, operating environment, and user preferences.
