Transformative Tooling Means Transformative Operations

A medical manufacturer seeking improved cycle times on complex humeral stem medical components, made of titanium, reduced cycle times by over 40% and saw an improvement in tool life from 8 pieces to 24 pieces using a standard end mill from the HARVI III AERO series in grade KCSM15A.

When working with cobalt chrome for machining knee replacements, a major medical implant producer was focused on reducing the need for post machining polishing. Kennametal’s HARVI 3 Solid Carbide Ball Nose End Mills were the solution, delivering not only an 80% increase in tool life but nearly $80K in cost savings.
