Setting, Measuring, Dispensing competences
MAPAL is the recognised specialist for fine boring using adjustable tools.
The exact setting and measurement of these tools is a prerequisite for high part quality. The lack of suitable equipment for setting tools with guide pads led MAPAL to become involved in the development and manufacture of mechanical and electronic setting fixtures over 30 years ago. MAPAL always places very high value on meeting the tightest of tolerances of < 2 μm and on the extraordinary precision and longevity of the devices.
The high precision of the MAPAL setting fixtures is due to the combination of an exact basic mechanical set-up and a tactile measuring method. Among other aspects, measuring errors due to vibration or oscillations are completely eliminated by the solid mechanical construction with a granite slab and the vibration-damped adjustable feet. Errors due to temperature fluctuations are excluded by the usage of high-quality materials.
