CNC Software, LLC, developers of Mastercam, has collaborated with Kennametal, provider of metal cutting tools and solutions, to provide customers with the ability to access tooling data for Kennametal brand drills and solid carbide end mills directly in the Mastercam tool library on their Tech Exchange.
Mastercam developers worked closely with Kennametal to enable users to import data on their performance cutting tools, including GOdrill and Kenna Universal solid carbide drills and a selection of HARVI and KOR end mills directly into Mastercam. The integration allows Mastercam customers to save time searching for desired tools and building tool assemblies.
“We are excited to offer these high-performance drills and endmills from Kennametal in a native Mastercam tool library format and make it available to our user base of over 300,000,” says Stas Mylek, partnership program manager, CNC Software, LLC. “The collaborative effort between both companies provides Mastercam users easy and integrated access to the latest cutting tools from Kennametal.”
Mastercam’s Maintained users can download the cutting tool libraries from the Mastercam Tech Exchange portal on their website. The native Mastercam tool database is fully compatible with Mastercam 2022 and the latest Mastercam 2023 release.
“The integration of our tooling data within Mastercam’s library digitizes Kennametal innovation and productivity, making it easier for customers to identify tooling requirements, build machining strategies, and ultimately purchase our tools,” says Eddie McBarnet, vice president Marketing, Kennametal. “Our digital tooling data, in combination with the powerful Mastercam software, will enable hundreds of thousands of customers to quickly find solutions to their toughest machining challenges and be more productive and efficient using Kennametal tooling.”
