End-to-end AM solutions for production parts
We understand downtime is expensive for our customers. Kennametal’s end-to-end AM capabilities offer a game-changing solution—high-performance parts, produced faster.
We combine our differentiated metal powders with manufacturing expertise in laser powder bed and binder jet printing technologies, as well as post-print processing, to produce complex, fully finished components and tooling with shorter lead times and improved performance. We can even create pre-qualified digital models that enable a print-on-demand approach— reducing the need to carry expensive inventory. All of which helps keep you up and running.
