INFO 13/17: Extension to range of face milling cutters and shoulder mills

The ZETAtec 90N arbour milling cutters, featuring diameters of 50 mm to 160 mm, are equipped with five to ten inserts, each of which has six cutting edges. The excellent standards of reliability they achieve during rough machining are thanks to their negative geometry – while the positive rake angle ensures a smooth cut.


INFO 12/17: Extension to range of face milling cutters and shoulder mills

The ETAtec 45P arbour milling cutters, featuring diameters of 50 mm to 160 mm, come equipped with between five and ten 7-edged inserts. The tools not only offer a 45° angle of attack and positive geometry, but also generate low cutting forces, all of which ensures a smooth machining process accompanied by high levels of productivity – an important user benefit, particularly in cases where less powerful machines and unstable clamping setups are being used.


INFO 11/17: Targeted cooling at the cutting edge

HORN presents Boehlerit’s extended product portfolio for turning using tool holders with connections for internal coolant supply. The new tool holders are available with toggle clamp (ISO-P) and screw clamp (ISO-S) systems.

Boehlerit’s new tool holders with connections for internal coolant supply are available with a toggle clamp system (P) and screw clamp system (S).


INFO 10/17: DA32 insert with diamond tip

At the EMO trade fair, HORN's proven DA32 milling system will be on show with diamond-tipped inserts for the first time. This feature allows the tools to achieve outstanding results during shoulder milling, face milling, plunge milling and circular milling. The highly positive geometry of the inserts ensures a particularly smooth cut.


INFO 9/17: Insert type 315, CBN-tipped

The latest expansion of the 315 grooving system from HORN covers hard machining applications. The single-edged, CBNtipped insert ensures high rigidity in the tool.

Furthermore, the portfolio is completed by the S29F system and a comprehensive range of ISO products, both of which are also available in PCD.


INFO 3/17: Mechanical machining of pipes and couplings for the crude oil and gas industries

Crude oil is one of the most important and most widely used raw materials, particularly as a raw material in the chemical industry and as a fuel for transport and for generating energy. Due to the huge importance of crude oil, the crude oil industry is the largest in the world.


INFO 2/17: Extention for modular system 960

HORN is extending the 960 modular system for the 845 interface by adding new cartridges to hold the S229 insert. The double-edged insert for grooving and parting off, as well as for longitudinal and contour turning, is available ex stock with various chipbreaker geometries and substrates. The maximum grooving depth of the cartridge is 25 mm with a machining diameter of 68 mm. Groove widths between 3 mm and 6 mm are available. All grooving cartridges are fitted with an internal coolant supply. Cooling takes place via the clamping finger and support.


INFO 1/17: Internally cooled inserts for grooving and parting off

The S100 single cutting edge insert and the S224 double cutting edge insert from HORN are available with internal coolant supply through the insert. The targeted coolant jet acts directly on the point of cutting, thus ensuring optimum cutting conditions. The funnel-shaped nozzle creates a coolant jet which actively supports chip formation and thus reduces the chance of chip jamming. Furthermore, this type of internal cooling significantly reduces the formation of built-up edges and fractures on the cutting edge. Unlike conventional cooling methods, this system therefore achieves higher cutting parameters, which allow the tool to be used even more economically and efficiently.
