Mapal will give a UK exhibition premiere to a complete range of new products (hall 17, stand 420).
For instance, the arrival of the CPR500/510 replaceable-head reamer will be a centrepiece of the hole-making series with its optimised cooling channels. These CVD-coated reamers are designed to extend tool life as the solid-carbide replaceable heads introduce a new coating technology that has been especially developed for machining castings.
Available in diameters from 8 to 40 mm, a major development of the CPR500/510 is its cooling sleeve. The issue of cooling is critical when machining castings due to the abrasiveness of the material, which is now resolved through the internal coolant supply and outlets that direct fluid at the cutting edges. Also on show will be a complete programme of ISO indexable inserts for boring steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant cast steel.
