Extremely hard and effective
PCD INDEXABLE INSERTS
On the usage of modern structural materials,
whether in vehicle manufacture, in aerospace
or also increasingly in mechanical engineering,
the focus is on an improved energy balance.
The energy consumption is to be lowered with
the same or even better dynamic performance.
For this reason the portion of non-ferrous
metals, fibre-reinforced plastics (GFRP,
CFRP) and sandwich materials is increasing
PCD is ideal as a cutting material for
machining these workpiece materials. Due to
its hardness and wear resistance even with
extremely abrasive materials, high cutting
values and tool lives can be achieved. The
cost-effectiveness of the machining is ensured
in this manner. MAPAL started to rely on PCD
during the design of high-performance tools at
an early stage and has obtained broad knowhow and many years of experience. Different
machining tasks with varying requirements in
relation to abrasiveness, part geometry and
machines are realised with PCD.
To achieve optimal technology figures for the
various requirement profiles and to fully exploit
the performance of the PCD cutting material
and of the machines, an optimal cutting
edge geometry must be manufactured with
high accuracy and reproducible quality.
