Mapal 3D printed reamers feature optimised cooling channels

The application of additive manufacturing has enabled Mapal to succeed in designing the coolant supply and shape of the coolant outlet for reaming. Thanks to special cooling lubricant outlets, the newly designed multi-bladed reamers of the MonoReam series now deliver coolant exactly to the cutting edge, a limitation of conventional manufacturing process.

All three reamers in the series feature the additively manufactured tool heads, which are also suitable for use with MQL. MonoReam reamers are available in fixed (600), expandable (700) and adjustable (800) versions.

The reamers are available as straight, left-hand flute, and short or long versions, and are suitable for through or blind bores. According to Mapal, MonoReam reamers can be designed with suitable cutting materials, coatings and cutting leads, in line with the material to be machined.
