PITTSBURGH — Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) announced today 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 advanced carbide 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 Kennametal will donate one dollar of each promotional sale to Workshops® for Warriors, a nonprofit organization that trains and certifies veterans and transitioning service members for advanced manufacturing careers.

“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, Chief Commercial Officer, Kennametal. “Through this 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.”
