MAPAL Drills into Productivity Gains at MACH 2020
For engineers drilling steel with unstable machining conditions, MAPAL will introduce the new QTD Pyramid tipped drill. The new QTD Series uses the smallest possible amount of carbide with an indexable insert that positionally centres itself with exceptional precision.The performance of a drill is very often governed by its respective clamping technology. For over 25 years, MAPAL has built up a broad portfolio of clamping products, and at MACH, the clamping and toolholding lines will be prominent with a series of new arrivals. By re-designing the complete range, MAPAL has completely re-designed the ranges by utilising intelligent design strategies that focus primarily upon reliable functionality.
The remit was to revise chuck appearance whilst adding value for the customer. Developed according to this design brief, the new chucks shine with proverbial brilliance. One of the elements in the new concept is the brilliant surface finish that ensures chucks are more resistant to corrosion than previous versions. A further design requirement was ‘foolproof-handling’; creating something that creates easy and self-explanatory handling of chucks. These requirements have been addressed with blue colored features such as the actuating screws on a hydraulic chuck. The product and design engineers also optimised the chucks by undertaking a complete review of the weight, material selection and size. The new design addresses the requirements for the greatest possible stability and vibration dampening characteristics. With a new design, the complete clamping range can now be immediately identified as stemming from the MAPAL stable.
