As a supplier of cutting tools for the automotive industry, MAPAL incorporated this topic into the company's strategic orientation at an early stage. And transferred its expertise in machining the conventional power train to the components to be machined in electrically powered vehicles.
For the raw materials often used in Fluid power such as cast iron, steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metal, MAPAL provides economical process solutions due to great expertise in bore machining as well as milling applications. When it comes to demanding machining for hydraulic and pneumatic parts in different dimensions, customers have relied on MAPAL’s expertise for many years.
Die and mould makers expect high process and product expertise from their cutting tools manufacturer. This is because the tool life of the moulds to be created and the precision of the moulded parts are extremely important for competitiveness in mass production. Therefore, they require their tools to offer the highest levels of precision, a long tool life, and – above all – process reliability.
It is precisely these aspects that make MAPAL successful in sectors such as the automotive industry, machine engineering and the aerospace industry. Now the precision tool manufacturer is also offering efficient and economical solutions for the complete machining process in the die & mould sector. Versatile and precise high-performance tools and special tool holders with narrow contours and a precise radial run-out minimise polishing effort and reworking thanks to a constant surface finish in the milling process.
In medical technology, this workpiece material is used for implants because of its strength and compatibility with human tissue. There are high demands placed on dimensional accuracy and high-quality surface finishes to ensure a long service life of hip protheses and titanium implants.
Automotive manufacturers use it to create powerful sports cars. Application involves semi-machining and finish machining of chassis components. The blades of large gas turbines, made of titanium, absorb enormous forces.
The aircraft industry is producing more and more highly stressed parts made of titanium. MAPAL is making drilling and milling of the ductile, high-strength workpiece material more productive, thereby reducing costs.
