Horn + W&F Solutions

Horn and W&F Werkzeugtechnik have come together to offer customers a complete solution covering everything from the spindle to the tool cutting edge. The focus is on equipping Swiss-type lathes with a quick-change system. “By entering into this cooperation, we are filling the gap that exists in our offering between the cutting edge and the machine. It will allow us to respond rapidly to customer enquiries and optimise their machining processes”, says Managing Director Lothar Horn, Paul Horn GmbH. Under the deal, HORN will be responsible for selling W&F tool solutions from Großbettlingen all across the world via its subsidiaries and sales partners in more than 70 countries.

The cooperation also brings many advantages in the OEM area by making it possible to offer customers “everything from a single source”. Thanks to the experience of both partners, new solutions and optimisation approaches can be developed in next to no time. To begin with, the cooperation will focus on quick tool change systems for Swiss-type lathes and internally cooled whirling units. A special Horn catalogue for Swiss-type turning is due to be launched in the autumn of 2018.

The first jointly developed technology to have come out of the cooperation is JET-Whirling. The internally cooled whirling tool is a real USP of the whirling method. Having the coolant supplied directly to the cutting edge during whirling results in higher surface quality, improves the flushing action for removing chips and extends the life of the tool inserts. The tool system – comprising the W&F whirling unit and Horn whirling head – was officially unveiled at AMB 2018 in Stuttgart.
