  • MAPAL offers various UNIBASE dispensing systems for optimum storage and management of tools, components and accessories, which can be individually networked with one another according to a modular principle. These systems are often situated in a central location in the manufacturing. In order to store and manage frequently required consumables in a decentralised and space-saving manner, MAPAL has developed the new, cost-effective UNIBASE-S single automatic dispenser. This can be connected to existing UNIBASE systems or used as an individual solution.

    Thanks to the compact dimensions, the UNIBASE-S stock dispensing system can be installed directly on the workbench. For example, the 96 or 192 compartments are ideal for storing indexable inserts, tools, chucks or personal protective equipment. This saves the employee a trip to the central warehouse and ensures production-related article procurement. In addition, logistics costs are reduced.

    Article removal is quick and uncomplicated in just a few steps. To do this, the employee logs on directly to the device via the integrated touchscreen. Only registered employees can remove articles. If no employee is logged on, central locking is active. After the desired article has been selected via the pre-installed software, the search function of the software supports this and an LED illumination identifies the compartment with the corresponding article. The dispensing drum is rotated manually so that it is at the removal position and the article can be removed. The system automatically registers the withdrawal – in this way, the current status is always used.

  • MAPAL Frhenosa, a joint venture by the MAPAL Group, is stepping up its activities in Mexico. The company has built a second branch in Santiago de Querétaro, giving it an operation right at the heart of the country for the first time. The opening ceremony was held at the end of January and was attended by numerous representatives of the worlds of business and politics.

    MAPAL Frhenosa occupies a leading position on the precision tools market in Mexico and employs roughly 120 people. The company’s headquarters are situated in Monterrey in the north of the country. The new factory in Querétaro gives it considerably more production capacity for reconditioning tools, as well as eventually creating 100 new jobs. “This second site gives us the opportunity to cut our response times by quite some margin whilst also meeting the ever more challenging requirements of our customers”, comments a delighted Dr Jochen Kress, president of the MAPAL Group. In recent years, Querétaro has flourished into a major hub for the international automotive and aerospace industries.

    Alongside customised process solutions for machining all manner of workpiece materials, MAPAL Frhenosa offers rapid reconditioning of PCD tools and regrinding of solid carbide tools in both Monterrey and Querétaro. The two factories use identical machinery and production processes and comply with the exacting international standards of the MAPAL Group. “For us, creating this new capacity is an investment in the future. We aim to keep on growing”, explains Lazaro Garza, CEO of MAPAL Frhenosa in Mexico.

    Mexico has signed free trade and co-operation agreements with more than 60 countries and is a strategically important location for the international MAPAL Group, with abundant potential for development. Approximately €2.3 million was invested in constructing the new branch.

  • Many versions of heat exchangers are used in different industries. After all, they help to make heat generated usable for other processes. In the case of recuperators, two liquid or gaseous media with different temperatures are pumped into separate circuits. A heat exchange takes place without mixing the media. Recuperators include bundle heat exchangers, which are usually made of metal and consist of a tube bundle that conducts a medium and an orifice baffle with a front tube plate through which a second medium flows. Depending on the size of the heat exchanger, the front tube plate has a large number of bores. To ensure that the medium does not escape at this component transition, high requirements are set at the bores with regard to position accuracy and dimensional accuracy.

    Triple edge drill is the method of choice

    The triple edge replaceable head drill TTD-Tritan from MAPAL has been tested in the petrochemical industry and is convincing right down the line when machining a tube plate. On the TTD-Tritan, tool head and tool holder are joined by Hirth serration. This connection is easy to operate and particularly stable, so that all the drill reaches the performance level of the solid carbide equivalent. In addition it guarantees the best torque transmission with simultaneous high changing and radial run-out accuracy. The TTD-Tritan is optimally centred via its pronounced drill tip and ensures very good circularity. In addition, the cost-intensive carbide is limited to the tool head for the replaceable head system, which leads to low tool costs even with large diameters. The replaceable head system has a positive effect on stock, as the wear parts are mainly limited to the drill heads: As a result, the capital tied up in stock is also reduced.
