Mapal’s FaceMill-Diamond polycrystalline diamond (PCD) milling cutter is designed for high-volume face milling on unstable parts.

“High cutting values and the resulting chip volume may, under certain circumstances, lead to washout of the tool body. To counteract this effect and maintain an economical product lifecycle, we have optimized the cooling concept and positioned the coolant outlets directly at the cutting edges,” explains Andreas Wittenauer, head of application technology with Mapal’s PCD Tool division. “This ensures improved chip removal and protects the tool body, especially for applications with minimum-quantity lubrication or air cooling.”

The tool is available in a modular version with a milling head for series production and parts that move from machine to machine.


  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?

  • Choose The Best Drill Point Geometry

    The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
