MAPAL To Introduce New Milling & Holemaking Lines at EMO

Added to MTDCNC by MAPAL on 27 July 2017

At EMO 2017 on Stand A18 in Hall 4, MAPAL will demonstrate why its global sales are continuing to rise through the ongoing development of innovative new product lines. The manufacturer of precision tools will be using Europe’s leading manufacturing exhibition as the launch pad for its new c-COM cloud based data platform as well as a host of new product lines.

At EMO, MAPAL will be focusing upon the extension of its holemaking line, with the arrival of its new CPR500/510 replaceable head reamer. Incorporating optimised cooling that offers an economic advantage in cast machining, this new arrival can significantly extend tool life as its solid carbide replaceable heads are designed with an innovative CVD coating. This coating was especially developed by MAPAL for cast machining and it has already been successfully used for milling.

Offered in diameters from 8 to 40mm, the new development of the CPR500/510 is its optimised cooling using a sleeve. The issue of cooling is very important for cast machining due to the abrasiveness of the material, which is now resolved by the internal coolant supply and the outlets that direct fluid at the cutting edges.

Complementing the new reaming line will be a complete programme of ISO indexable inserts for boring steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant cast-steel. This new ISO indexable insert series will be available as standard or as special designs. For this new product line, MAPAL has gone beyond the call of duty. The new range incorporates new coating developments and an optimised carbide substrate for the inserts.

Depending on the prevailing general conditions such as material, machine stability, coolant and clamping condition, customers can choose between PVD and CVD coated cutting materials.

In 2016 MAPAL defined a new standard in drilling with the arrival of its Tritan-Drill range. The drills with three cutting edges will now be extended at EMO 2017 with a specially adapted version for machining steel. With the new Tritan-Drill-Steel, the material can be machined significantly more cost-effectively compared with drills using two cutting edges.

The robustness of the Tritan-Drill-Steel is due to the completely new cutting edge design that is different to the Tritan-Drill-Uni for universal use. The resulting stable cutting edges reduce the mechanical loads whilst the coating is also specially adapted for the machining of steel.

For manufacturers looking for innovative milling solutions at EMO, MAPAL will be extending its programme of solid carbide high-performance milling cutters for roughing applications with the new OptiMill-Uni-Wave. This full slot milling series makes a groove depth of up to 2xD possible. With the new milling cutter that can be used for many materials, the level of performance is significantly increased compared with previous existing HPC milling cutters.

To achieve this, MAPAL has developed a highly ductile carbide substrate with an extremely wear-resistant coating and special cutting edge preparation. These developments generate 50% longer tool life than comparable HPC milling cutters. An innovative diamond knurl geometry guarantees an improved distribution of the cutting forces and ensures optimum chip formation. The short, tightly rolled chips are reliably removed. The five cutting edges of the OptiMill-Uni-Wave are divided unevenly and the new line will be available in short, long, overlong and extra long sizes in the HB shank form with a diameter range from 4 to 25mm.

For face milling operations, EMO will see the arrival of a new generation of milling tools for cutting depths up to 4mm.
With replaceable PCD milling cartridges, the new PowerMill-Blue is the cutter of choice when machining aluminium in the automotive industry. The setting and clamping system of the milling inserts has proven itself beyond compare whilst the chip guiding geometry has been optimised for the new series. The chip former is no longer integrated in the tool body but directly in the milling cassettes. The chips are reliably removed resulting in better surface finishes whilst the coolant outlet is localised in the milling cassette to support swarf evacuation.

As well as these exciting new product lines, MAPAL will be introducing a host of other new developments such as the new features of the UNIBASE-M tool storage and management system. For more details on the new developments that will be shown at EMO, come and visit us on stand A18 in Hall 4. If you can’t make it to Hanover for the show, please contact MAPAL for further details or make sure you visit us at the Advanced Engineering Show at the NEC in November.
