The tool can be fitted with HX or TEC indexable inserts, depending on the application. The HX indexable inserts with six cutting edges are suitable for through holes. Blind holes and shoulders can be finely machined using TEC indexable inserts with four cutting edges. The EasyAdjust-System from MAPAL is used for clamping the indexable inserts. The heart of the system is an innovative cassette that stably holds the indexable insert with its six or four cutting edges without any play. The back taper of the minor cutting edge is already integrated into this cassette. The setting effort for the back taper is thus completely eliminated. Due to the exact guidance of the cassette on a precision guide pin, the back taper remains unchanged even during diameter adjustments.

The new finely adjustable tool with the number of indexable inserts and guide pads adapted to the diameter impresses in particular with the high accuracy of the results and the high cost-effectiveness. Initial tests in practice have shown very good results: In particular the tool achieves a parallel alignment of the bores of < 1 µm.
