HORN: New Cassette Holders for S224 Grooving System

New Axial Cassette System S224

HORN has expanded its range of face grooving products with new cassette variants for the S224 Grooving System.

 

HORN has extended its modular concept so that various types of cartridge can be clamped using a single base holder. The high coolant pressure ensures improved chip removal from the groove. Thanks to the wide range of chipbreaker geometries and substrates available with the S224 double-edged system, the tool system can be easily adapted to the machining task as well as the material to be machined.

HORN: S224 Face Grooving System

New Addition – S224 Face Grooving System

Paul Horn GmbH in Tübingen has expanded its range of face grooving products. To accommodate axial grooving operations with diameters ranging from 38 mm to 1,000 mm, Horn is now offering new holder variants for the S224 grooving system. Horn is extending its modular concept so that various types of cartridge can be clamped using a single base holder.

The internal coolant supply allows direct cooling in the contact zone while simultaneously increasing tool life. In addition, the high coolant pressure ensures improved chip removal from the groove. Thanks to the wide range of chip breaker geometries and substrates available with the S224 double-edged system, the tool system can be easily adapted to the machining task as well as the material to be machined.

Horn offers the axial holders in the following versions: LAK (left, external), RAK (right, external), LIK (left, internal) and RIK (right, internal). The maximum groove depth (tmax) is 14 mm. Groove widths (w) range from 3 mm to 6 mm. The internal coolant supply is via a transfer point on the base holder. However, the cartridges can also be used on older Horn holders without coolant transfer.

New MAPAL Tool Holders Programme

At a Glance
  • New design concept for chucks with added value
  • Brilliant surface finish and clear handling information
  • Expansion to the entire chuck programme planned
  • Corrosion-resistant chucks
  • Self-explanatory, straightforward handling – foolproof
  • Greatest possible stability with optimal usage of resources

Carefully considered Design taps Potential

Not only the appearance of the chucks was revised, above all added value for the customer was to be generated by means of carefully considered industrial design. Why? An ingenious design is not only a visual highlight, it also taps economic and ecological potential. Starting from this point, the product designers prepared, together with those responsible for the products at MAPAL, a new concept that is also based on function and FEM analyses.

The chucks designed according to this concept shine proverbially with a new brilliance. One of the elements in the new concept is the brilliant surface finish. This surface finish, produced by a specially developed polishing method, ensures that the chucks are more resistant to corrosion than in the past.

Easy, Self-explanatory “foolproof” Handling

A further requirement on the new design was so-called “foolproof handling”; that is the easy, self-explanatory handling of the chucks. Controls were to be identifiable as such more quickly with directly understandable handling information. These requirements were addressed, on the one hand, by the blue colour for the controls, such as the actuating screw on a hydraulic chuck and, on the other hand, by internally developed symbols that contain corresponding information, independent of the related language.

Last but not least the shape of the chucks, their weight and use of material were studied and optimised. The new shape addresses the requirements for the greatest possible stability with optimal usage of resources. Even the smallest weight savings on chucks have major effects that become apparent in use over the long term. Among other aspects, the lighter the chuck, the less energy is required during the acceleration and braking of the spindle.

Corporate design creates Recognition

Due to the new corporate design, the complete clamping technology range can be immediately identified as a MAPAL product – with a promise of quality and function.

 

HORN: New Supermini HP Geometry + Holder Systems

New Supermini HP and Holder Systems

The new HP geometry for SuperMini is suitable for drilling, boring, face turning and skimming. The new cutting geometry enables shorter machining times due to higher cutting depths. As well as the new geometries, Horn has developed a new holder system for the Supermini type 105. In addition to high repeatability when changing inserts, this results in a higher holding force of the insert and therefore a high rigidity of the overall system.
