Cost-Effective Boring of Turbochargers, Brake Calipers and More

MAPAL is presenting a new series of cutting materials for ISO indexable inserts, as well as press-to-size inserts for the boring of steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant cast steel, to be used in turbochargers or other components.

MAPAL is presenting a new series of cutting materials for ISO indexable inserts, as well as "press-to-size" inserts for the boring of steel, stainless steel and heat-resistant cast steel, to be used in turbochargers, for example. Combination tools and the new ISO indexable inserts allow users to achieve better cost-effectiveness, resulting in a clear reduction of the cost-per-part.

For the new ISO indexable inserts, MAPAL has not only developed optimum coatings, but also optimized the carbide substrate of the inserts and the edge rounding for machining. PVD- and CVD-coated cutting materials are available to suit application requirements. The cutting materials differ depending on the ductility of the carbide substrate used.

CVD-coated ISO indexable inserts are the standard for all boring processes and offer high wear resistance. They offer the potential for a significant increase in cutting speed and productivity, even in dry machining applications.

PVD-coated cutting materials are available for challenging conditions, such as interrupted cuts or unstable machine ratios. They are designed to provide a good balance between ductility and wear resistance for reliable machining results.

"In cast iron machining, a new series of cutting materials mean an increase in tool life of up to 100% (depending on the application). When machining steel and turbochargers, the increase is, on average, 50% greater. In production, cost-per-part is reduced accordingly," said a company spokesperson.

Together with the special and standard ISO indexable inserts, MAPAL's new series of cutting materials also includes tangential "press-to-size" ISO indexable inserts. These cost-effective inserts complement the high-precision ground inserts. They are used for applications with larger permissible tolerances, as is generally the case for roughing.
