    The new solid carbide FixReam high-performance reamer series covers a wide range of applications and it has already proven itself in steel and cast machining. Now, Mapal is expanding the series to include the FixReam Short Plus with newly developed coolant outlets. With the new reamer, users can machine both through bores and blind bores. The universal application means that only one tool needs to be kept in stock instead of two, therefore reducing tool and storage costs.

    Thanks to a patented arc land chamfer, the cylindrical form of the bore as well as the roundness is improved by 30 percent compared to the previously available FixReam reamers. The unevenly divided cutting edges ensure smooth running with little vibration to enhance surface finishes. The short design saves the carbide resource and improves the stability of the tool. In addition, this solution is more cost-effective than the long design series.
