On Stand M1 at the Advanced Engineering exhibition at the Birmingham NEC, MAPAL will demonstrate the extension of its hole-making line with its new CPR500/510 replaceable head reamer. Incorporating optimised cooling that offers an economic advantage in cast machining, this new range can extend tool life as its solid carbide replaceable heads are designed with an innovative CVD coating. Developed by MAPAL for cast machining, the coating will be a crowd puller at the event among automotive and aerospace engineers aiming to improve machining performance on challenging materials.
Complementing this new line will be a complete programme of ISO indexable inserts for boring steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant cast-steel. Last year, MAPAL defined a new standard in drilling with the arrival of its three cutting-edge Tritan-Drill. At Advanced Engineering 2017 and fresh from their EMO premiere, the extended line of drills will be at the show with a specially adapted version for machining steel
