At the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2000, Kennametal Inc. (Booth #E-2105) will introduce a revolutionary new product for metalworking -- its new premier universal turning grade: KC8050™. The grade is engineered for finishing through interrupted roughing applications in work pieces made of steel, stainless steels, cast irons and high-temperature alloys. Its versatility and productivity will provide a competitive advantage to any metalworking operation.
Kennametal will present a World Premiere Event "Then...and Wow!" to introduce the KC8050 grade, featuring some of the world's most recognized "celebrities," a virtual tour through some of Kennametal's key markets, a trip back in time, and news from Kennametal's CEO Markos I. Tambakeras about what's changing the shape of Kennametal today. Free food and beverages will also be available.
"The introduction of KC8050 will be a world-beating event in our industry," said Tambakeras. "This further validates Kennametal's commitment to improving our customers' manufacturing competitiveness and to maintaining our global leadership position in advancing the technology of the metalworking industry."
