    Product description

    External reamers function better, the lighter they are – particularly when machining shafts with small diameters. However, a conventionally manufactured steel tool for the machining of a diameter of 8.5 mm already weighs 400 grammes. This weight and the resulting inertia considerably limit the maximum possible cutting speeds.

    Weight optimisation of the tools immediately brings noticeable increases in productivity. MAPAL is one of the first companies in the industry to use the additive production process of laser sintering to optimise the weight of the external reamers.

    Thanks to a specially developed rib structure inside the tool (patent pending) it is now possible to produce the above-mentioned reamer with a weight of 172 grammes, i.e. to more than halve the weight. Machining with the laser-sintered external reamers can now be carried out faster and with higher precision.
