Lecture overview

During the Technology Days you are again invited to attent to a selection of lectures.

Lothar Horn, Managing Director of Paul Horn GmbH, emphasized: "We do not view our Technology Days as an advertising event. We want to push forward technology and innovation together with our customers and communicate knowledge. This is also the reason why the lecturs are not product-related, but application-oriented. "

ECONOMICAL TITANIUM MACHINING WITH HIGH-FEED MILLING CUTTERS

Room E, daily at 9:15 a.m.
Chris Smith

The milling of titanium presents significant challenges for the entire process. Among other things, the presentation shows the results of the joint project “SchwerSpan”, which implemented user-oriented solutions to create a novel tool design.

 

TURBO AND ROTARY WHIRLING – REDEFINING THREAD CUTTING

Room E, daily at 10:15 a.m.
Chris Foschaar

The increasing economic importance of thread whirling means that it is necessary to rethink the process that has been in use since 1942. Turbo whirling and rotary whirling are two new processes which bring about a significant increase in performance in the production of threads.

 

PERFECT GEAR TEETH

Room E, daily at 11:15 a.m.
Stuart Gill

Gear teeth can now be produced with a number of different processes. The optimal machining process is determined based on the module size, the expected number of pieces and other conditions.

 

TRENDS FOR GROOVING AND PARTING OFF

Room E, daily at 12:15 a.m.
Ken Hamming

At HORN, we know that the tool plays a major role in the machining process. This presentation focuses on new grooving systems for grooving and parting off. Learn how to use the latest technology in a versatile and high-performing way.

 

MICRO-MACHINING ON LATHES – PRECISION LEADS TO SUCCESS

Room E, daily at 1:15 p.m.
Michael Smoody

Micro-machining on lathes places high demands on the tool, machine and operator. The smallest feed rates, lowest cutting depths and the highest surface quality require innovative tool solutions. The presentation demonstrates how the combination of high-precision cutting edges, micro-grain carbides and innovative coatings fulfils the quality requirements in the micro-turning range.

 

HIGH-PERFORMANCE MILLING SYSTEMS

Room E, daily at 2:15 p.m.
Alan Whalley

Modern one-off and series production of different components places high requirements on the milling tools involved. In order to be able to use high-performance milling systems in a long-term and stable manner, a large number of prerequisites are required. On the one hand, these include the basic geometrical concepts of the tooling systems, and on the other hand, the important combination of the machine, workpiece and tool concept. This presentation provides an insight into the conceptual design of milling systems and the resulting application possibilities.

 

COATINGS

Room E, daily at 3:15 p.m.
Steve Kilpin

The right choice of coating is a key factor in tool design. Depending on the application, very different requirements apply to the machining process and therefore also to the high-performance coating of the tool. HORN provides an insight into today’s highly complex coating technologies.

 

PRECISION SINTERED INTERFACES OF CUTTING TOOLS

Room E, daily at 4:15 p.m.
Bob Kover

Based on the example of the HORN Interface with 120°-serration the lecture describes the requirements on form- and dimensional tolerances of the carbide product plus the challenges in look of the high precision during the manufacturing process of the sintered blank. Another aspect the lecture will address is the measuring of the free form surfaces with its extremely high accuracy in the in the area of μm.
