A little KenCast goes a long way. Applied strategically, small KenCast wear parts provide exceptional wear resistance. Use KenCast in these applications to prevent or reduce wear damage and costs.
Most surface mining components have a relatively short lifespan due to damage from weather exposure and abrasive materials. KenCast can’t do anything about the weather, but we can do a lot to prevent wear damage.
Customer Experience: When a Kennametal customer’s grizzly crusher was outfitted with KenCast, it withstood 900,000 tons of highly abrasive impact, compared to abrasion-resistant steel that averages only 75,000 tons. This translated into the customer saving $2,000/month.
Wear damage is one of the most common and expensive causes of equipment failure in underground mining applications. Kennametal offers 16 styles of CLA tips in different thicknesses and lengths.
KenCast can increase snowplow blade life by up to 30% and snowplow shoe life up to 10x longer than standard steel shoes.
In a customer’s tunnel boring machining application, KenCast corner castings lasted 5x longer than those hardfaced with 4140.
KenCast grinder hammer tips last up to 10x longer than competitive overlay-style tools. Many styles have shown only moderate wear after 40 hours of highly abrasive shingle grinding.
