From 10 to 700 – mixed machining at an unprecedented level

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.
