Lowering your per-part machining cost means increasing output without degrading repeatability. This is the challenge at the heart of all the advancements we have celebrated at Knight Carbide. And after 50 years of creating the highest-quality inserts for prominent clients in major industries like aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, medical and more, Knight Carbide has earned its reputation many times over as a leading insert tool innovator.

Knight Carbide’s exceptional form tools provide accuracy and repeatability for blueprint applications. Our form tools increase productivity by combining grooving and profiling into a single operation, saving time and increasing tool life.

Micro-geometry edging, highly effective chip breakers, and a range of premium coating options all conspire to increase tool life by optimizing chip formation for efficient evacuation at every cut. In the end, it is geometry that holds the secret to delivering maximum productivity in minimal time through the most cost-effective process achievable.

No two applications are ever entirely the same. The only way to ensure you have arrived at the ideal solution is to meticulously analyze every variable, every time you approach a new tooling challenge. Only then does the best solution reveal itself. Find out just how good you are at what you do by using the finest insert form tools available. You will find them at Knight Carbide.

THE BENEFITS OF GEAR SHAVING

Gear shaving is a finishing process involving intricate movements and specialized tooling. Knight Carbide offers the technology and the expertise to provide high-precision gear shaving to optimize part performance and extend operational service life. 

Knight Carbide can provide precision ground blanks to fit many gear shaving tooling systems if you choose to grind the finish end form geometry in-house. These ultra precision blanks minimize deviations both in grinding forms and manufacturing gears.

Knight Carbide gear shaving removes even trace amounts of residual material left from the manufacturing process while correcting any irregularities or distortions in gear surface, edge and contour. The result is a finished part that will run quieter, work harder and last longer.
