Every new machining job begins with a challenge, and questions: “I need a ½” by 5xD solid carbide drill in grade KC7315.”
NOVO helps you find and select the tools you need for any machining job.
Tools can be selected from your current shop inventory, or any available source (in stock or purchased).
The NOVO Tool Selector lets users select cutting tools using a drill-down search or advanced filters.
Build tool assemblies using fits-with and works-with technology. Always get the latest tool data and selection via NOVO.
Smart filters help find and select the right cutting tools in minutes, rather than hours. Quick search on specific part numbers or tool descriptions.
A job shop planned to retrofit an old lathe machine with a new turret. This machine typically handled two to three different types of small lug machining jobs. Time was of the essence. A Kennametal rep visited the shop and recommended the KM quick-change tooling system. The job shop owner requested the new tooling proposal be prepared in one day so he had time to review it and decide whether to go with our solution or a competitor's.
Creating the quote usually would take 1 to 2 days, and involve gathering information from multiple catalogs and creating the assembly drawing.
We used the NOVO app at the owner's shop floor and created a solution in only three hours. We improved our quoting efficiency from a day or more to only three hours. By achieving such fast results, the owner chose Kennametal's solution. He is now retrofitting the machine turret with KM tooling and is back to production faster with the latest technology.
