Kennametal execs win recognition for making strides in science
Dr. Aharon Inspektor likens his work with nanotechnology at Kennametal Inc. to a Lego toy --- building from the bottom up.
Inspektor, a senior staff engineer, and his team in Kennametal's metalworking solutions and services group spent years grappling with nanotechnology, the emerging science of building devices from single atoms and molecules.
Their painstaking work paid off this year. His team developed proprietary "nanolayer" coatings that Unity, Westmoreland County-based Kennametal has used to produce metalcutting tools that better withstand the impact and high temperatures of high-speed metals machining, improving durability and performance.
