Kennametal Inc. recently announced its partnership with TITANS of CNC on its Aerospace Academy, an online education platform designed to teach programmers and machinists next-generation aerospace machining and manufacturing.
Powered by Kennametal’s high-performance tooling solutions, the TITANS of CNC Aerospace Academy offers free courses to machinists to teach them about the materials, tooling and techniques used in advanced aerospace manufacturing. A series of instructional videos and self-paced part building projects are designed to challenge even experienced programmers and machinists. Each tutorial specifies the preferred Kennametal tool for the job, taking the complexity out of tool selection and enabling users to complete each build with confidence and accuracy. A selection of those tools, in the most used diameters, is available at special pricing for customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico through January 31 at www.kennametal.com/titanpromo. To further support manufacturing workforce development, Kennametal will donate one dollar for each end mill sold through the promotion to Workshops for Warriors®, a nonprofit organization that trains and certifies veterans and transitioning service members for careers in advanced manufacturing.
“From our King of Roughing, the KOR 5, to our award-winning HARVI I TE, Kennametal’s aerospace solutions are all about helping our customers cut faster, longer and more efficiently,” said Ron Port, Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Metal Cutting, Kennametal. “Through this special promotion and our partnership with TITANS of CNC on the Aerospace Academy, we’re making it easy for a broader range of customers than ever before to access the sophisticated tooling and training needed to position themselves to win in aerospace manufacturing over the long term.”
"We are proud to partner with Kennametal to create this revolutionary Aerospace Academy, teaching and demonstrating complex aerospace manufacturing techniques in an easy-to-use, online format,” said Titan Gilroy, CEO, TITANS of CNC, Inc. “We’ve relied on and trusted Kennametal tooling for the most challenging aerospace applications with tremendous success. Through this new Aerospace Academy, we are teaching students as well as professionals the skills they need to be successful in the aerospace industry.”
The Aerospace Academy includes modules on CAD/CAM/CNC machining, automation and business management processes and quoting. It offers a tailored, self-paced learning experience with aerospace projects that take the user from the design concept of an aerospace part through final machining and inspection—with each part of the process documented to ensure successful completion. An included Knowledge Base provides recommendations for feeds and speeds, tooling and approaches needed for success in multiple aerospace applications. The Aerospace Academy is the latest in the TITANS of CNC education series, all powered by Kennametal tooling.
