Kennametal Stellite™ Components

Manufactured using a comprehensive range of alloys to combat wear in the most demanding environments. No matter the industry, we offer the flexibility to supply components in any volume and either as-cast or finish-machined to meet exacting tolerances.

Solid monolithic components are produced from wear resistant superalloy materials or softer base metals, either by casting, powder metallurgy, or wrought processes - from tiny bearings to components weighing hundreds of pounds.

We partner with customers to better understand wear issues and determine the best solution for each situation. Put over 100 years of wear expertise to work against your toughest application!

Investment Casting

A process where wax patterns (assembled into trees) are used to form ceramic shells.

The shells are filled with molten alloy material, and solidified to form a casting.

The resulting cast component is then machined to meet the customer's requirements.

Sand Casting

Sand and a binding agent are packed into wooden or aluminuim patterns creating a sand mould. Two halves of the mould are made and joined together. A molten alloy is poured in and allowed to cool.

The sand is then removed and the remaining cast component can be machined to your exact requirements

Centrifugal Casting

Centrifugal force is employed to exert pressure onto molten metal as it is poured into a spinning mold resulting in a dense part with a fine uniform grain structure.

The centrifugal force presses the molten metal against the inner wall of the mold, densifying the metal. Ideal for cylindrical components exposed to frictional wear.

Powder Metallurgy

A process for making fully dense components with uniform microstructures free of non-metallic inclusions and defects.

A mixture of metal powder and a binder is formed to shape through either a pressing or extrusion process. The diffusion of metal atoms between the alloy particles produces strong bonds between the particles.

Wrought Materials

Stellite™ alloys are available in many different grades and several different methods of manufacturing These different processes include casting, powder metal, hardfaced deposit, and wrought.

For wrought grades Stellite™ 6B and Stellite™ 6K, the wrought or hot forging method of production leads to improvements of the resulting material.

In-House Machining

Stellite wear resistant components are more challenging to machine vs. steel/stainless steel.

Our expertise in advanced materials give us an edge for efficient and cost-effective machining methods using our full in-house capabilities.
