MAPAL relies on the Safe-Lock system from HAIMER

Within a wide range of markets, such as the aerospace industry, cutting tools from MAPAL have successfully established themselves for high-performance machining operations liketrochoidal milling. In order to offer users even greater protection against tools being pulled out of the chuck during machining operations, and to prevent damaging single workpieces or the machine itself, MAPAL is going to rely on the Safe-Lock™ pull-out protection system from HAIMER. The two companies recently signed a corresponding licensing agreement.

HAIMER and MAPAL have reached a partnership and licensing agreement. The toolholding specialist from Igenhausen near Augsburg and the precision cutting tool manufacturer from Aalen are combining their strengths to form a new partnership. In the future, they will work strategically closer together on the progression and further development of technologies and their applications in the manufacturing market. The two companies have signed an agreement that has contractually solidified their partnership. "We are proud and happy to have a strong partner at our side in MAPAL that is one of the world's leading tool manufacturers," emphasizes Claudia Haimer, managing partner of HAIMER. And the managing partner of MAPAL, Dr. Dieter Kress, is also looking forward to the future cooperation. "We value the high-level expertise of HAIMER whose innovative solutions in the field of tool holders represent the perfect complement to our high-tech tools." Through the agreement, MAPAL has acquired a license to HAIMER's Safe-Lock™ technology that is patented worldwide.

"The Safe-Lock™ system has proven itself both in the market and during our in-house trials. Consequently we have decided to use this leading system," Dr. Jochen Kress, Member of the MAPAL Senior Management, says. "It is very frequently used for modern machining strategies. With Safe-Lock™ the productivity and tool life can be significantly increased," Andreas Haimer, Managing Director and President of the HAIMER Group,explains .When it comes to high-speed cutting, absolute safety is especially crucial. Considering the high value of the single workpiece or an unmanned production, scrap parts and machine downtime have to be avoided in order to guarantee process reliability. Through special drive keys in the tool holder and grooves in the cutting tool shank, the Safe-Lock™ system from HAIMER ensures high accuracy frictional clamping with the security of a form fit between grooves on the cutting tool and the drive keys in the chuck. This prevents the cutting tool from turning or being pulled out of the chuck during machining.

As a first step and starting in October, MAPAL will be offering selected cutting tools for high-performance machining with the Safe-Lock™ shank.As a second step, the MAPAL hydraulic chucks will follow and also be designed for this type of pull-out protection.
