PITTSBURGH, May 31, 2023 – Kennametal Inc.

About HARVI™ Solid Carbide End Mills

The Kennametal HARVI solid carbide end mill portfolio is an industry staple because of its ability to outperform other end mill tools when working on hard-to-machine aerospace materials like titanium and Inconel.

A signature Kennametal brand and bestseller, HARVI end mills have been proven to deliver time and cost savings in aerospace operations with impressive Metal Removal Rates and longer tool life. Users experience maximum productivity from HARVI style end mills with features like:

  • HARVI 1 TE’s twisted cutting edge for increased corner stability and market leading ramping and helical interpolation operations.
  • Proprietary relief from anti-vibration-anti-friction technology.
  • Unequal divided flutes including some with variable helix, enabling vibration dampening and unmatched feed rates.
  • An innovative flute design with chip gashes to reduce cutting forces and promote more efficient chip evacuation.

In April 2023, Kennametal launched a new end mill grade called KCSM15A and will be expanding its HARVI product lines in Fall 2023.
