Drilling, Boring and Countersinking Comptence
Tools with ISO indexable inserts are taking a leading role in the area of boring. Building on its know-how related to fine machining, MAPAL has developed a comprehensive standard programme for this machining.
PCD drills can be optimally matched to the process for customer-specific solutions. Twisted designs ensure the highest performance and extremely reduced machining times.
MAPAL also offers the optimal solution for secondary machining operations such as countersinking – whether using the tool specifically designed for this machining or in combination with the drilling tool as a countersink step.
Standardised processes and numerous MAPAL Group sites worldwide ensure optimum tool supply and re-grinding for solid carbide and PCD tools with the same high quality.
As a technology partner, MAPAL offers a comprehensive standard programme of solid carbide drills and as a replaceable head system for all machining operations. Irrespective of which workpiece materials, whether non-ferrous metals, steels, modern lightweight materials or difficult to machine materials, MAPAL offers the right drill.
Every machining process has latent potential for boosting productivity. Also supposedly secondary machining operations such as countersinking offer significant potential for improvement, as is demonstrated by MAPAL with the extremely unequal spaced countersinks. These operate with significantly reduced axial and radial forces and achieve better surfaces and longer tool lives, and also ensure optimal screw and rivet joints.
