Leading supplier of precision tools for machining Mapal is presenting its milling programme with pressed, radial ISO indexable inserts, which completes the company's portfolio of standard milling tools.
Until now, Germany-based Mapal has mainly focused on a milling programme with ground tangential ISO indexable inserts. These are used, in particular, for special applications, very large stock removal, unstable conditions and disc milling cutters.
According to Mapal, it has incorporated comprehensive know-how of these special applications into the new series of milling cutters with radial ISO indexable inserts. The new powerful face, shoulder, slot and shell end face milling cutters are designed for roughing and for the medium machining of cast iron, steel and stainless steel. They have optimally designed tool bodies with the correspondingly correct number of teeth to match different applications. Positive and negative indexable inserts made of four different PVD cutting materials, based on newly-developed carbide substrates and coatings, are available for the milling cutters.
Depending on the requirement, the most economically efficient version is used. For example, between eight and 16 cutting edges per radial ISO indexable insert can be selected for face milling and between two, four and eight cutting edges for shoulder milling.
The new tools are effective thanks to their smooth running, while producing low noise. As matching possibilities are offered, which comply with the exact adjustment to match the material as well as the application, long tool life is also achieved.
At AMB, Mapal will be in Hall 1, Booth D10.
