MAPAL has developed ISO indexable inserts for boring the aluminium cast combination that was successfully in use. Now the development has moved a step further due to downsizing. Together with the top half shell made of aluminium, today manufacturers increasingly rely on sintered steel instead of cast iron for the bottom half shell. This steel features a higher strength than cast iron and is therefore more suited for the increased mechanical loads.
The Kyocera Group exhibits its latest products and technologies at JIMTOF 2016, the 28th Japan International Machine Tool Fair — one of the largest events of its kind in Asia, being held November 17-22 at the Tokyo Big Sight. New products, including CA3 Series indexable cutting tool inserts for cast iron machining, will contribute to further advancing global manufacturing.
