Building on extensive experience with the extremely hard cutting materials PcBN and PCD from the area of boring, milling and reaming, MAPAL has also obtained a profound understanding of the turning process.
A clear focus here is on hard turning.
The range from MAPAL includes special tool solutions for scroll-free turning for complete machining of sealing faces, bearing surfaces and bearing seats on the lathe. This saves time-consuming re-clamping of the workpieces on grinding machines.
To utilise optimally costly PcBN round inserts, MAPAL has developed a system with indexable round inserts that makes simply defined rotation of the insert in the machine possible. In this way the insert can be utilised optimally. Maximum stability during hard grooving with PcBN is ensured by the grooving system VersaCut. It offers the optimal prerequisites for the special requirements of hard machining.
