Whether for special machines or for complete machining on flexible machining centres – if the issue is to machine complex contours, non-cylindrical bores, face surfaces or recesses on cubic parts, actuating tools offer the optimal tool. The product range includes mechanical actuating tools, which on the machine side are driven by pull/push rods or U axis systems, as well as NC-controlled tools, and the particularly flexible mechatronic tool system TOOLTRONIC, for machines without an additional feed unit.
An application for actuating tools can be found in many branches. Especially in the automotive industry there are many applications which require highest precision. For example the machining of the crankcase bearing journals, the contour machining of the cylinder bore before the fitting of the cylinder liner, the trumpet form of the con rod, the sealing groove and the connection of the electronical brake of the caliper, the taper turning on the pivot bearing or the spherical machining on the coupling device. The range of application is nearly unlimited.
TOOLTRONIC-CAT: Machining of trumpet form with an oval and elliptic profile in AlSi-alloy
The MAPAL TOOLTRONIC with an additional CAT (Contour Actuating Tool) actuating tool is the ideal tool for producing almost any required cylinder shape, for example contour drill holes, reliably, flexibly and quickly. This is because the production processes for eccentric turning can be carried out on just one machining centre using the TOOLTRONIC-CAT. The controlled, oscillating movement of the turning tool produces the required geometry, namely deliberate non-roundness.
Complex, exactly calibrated mechanisms and the numerous different parts inside an actuating tool require the highest accuracy and care during every production step. To safeguard the high precision of the tools, they are assembled manually. To commission the tools as quickly and efficiently as possible at the customer, complex actuating tools are comprehensively tested in advance under extreme loads and real application conditions. Commissioning at the customer is then undertaken by a MAPAL application specialist. MAPAL in India have trained professionals to provide application and service support for these tools.
In October 2015, MAPAL expanded its operation in new production site for actuating tools and ISO special tools. A 5000 square meter modern Administration, Design and production facility building in Eppingen, Baden-Württemberg has been built which combines the previous locations of Sinsheim and Vaihingen. MAPAL has significantly increased its production capacity for actuating and ISO special tools to meet the large demand and the customers‘ request for shorter delivery times. The newly built production hall in Eppingen is equipped with the latest manufacturing technology and has a modern CNC machines.
The production and logistics processes have been optimized during the course of the strategic realignment and adapted to the new capacity. This has resulted in a sophisticated, highly efficient overall concept which ensures higher production volumes, quick response times and highest precision. In addition, there is sufficient capacity for further growth of the Competence Centre.
