EMO Preview : Economic Advantages with Form Tools

Turning with form tools allows customers to benefit from economic advantages in series production. Horn offers customised carbide form inserts based on the 117 tool system for machining diameters from 16 mm upwards on turning and mill-turn centres. The patented, precision insert seat of the 117 system guarantees high concentricity and minimal axial runout as well as high repeatability of insert exchange to within microns. The precision-ground cutting edges achieve a high level of accuracy and surface quality. Financial savings are achieved due to the possibility of re-tipping, lower tool costs and reduced machine downtime. The internal coolant supply to both cutting edges via the round shank cools the contact zone and carries the chips away efficiently.

Horn offers the tools in profile widths (w) of 16 mm, 20 mm and 26 mm. Special profiles are precision ground to suit the application. The maximum profile depth is tmax = 17 mm. The maximum profile width is w = 26 mm. The insert coating is specially selected for each application and is available for material groups P, M, K and N. The round shanks are available as standard with diameters of 16 mm, 20 mm and 25 mm in the A and E designs. All variants have an internal coolant supply.

 

EMO Preview: New Insert Clamping System for Horn Supermini

Horn has developed a new tool holder for its Supermini type 105 grooving and boring tools. In the new design, the process for clamping the carbide insert uses a tensioning wedge on the face rather than the circumference of the tool, as was previously the case. This enables the insert to be held in place with more force, which makes the entire system more rigid. Additionally, the new clamping design results in a higher level of repeatability when changing inserts and allows for better use of the space available for mounting it due to the face clamping concept. This is a significant advantage when working with Swiss-type lathes, as it enables users to change the insert without removing the tool holder.

The Horn Supermini tool system is able to bore holes from 0.2 mm to 8 mm in diameter. With over 1,500 varieties available as standard, there is a solution to suit every user. In addition to boring, the system is designed for grooving, chamfering, threading, broaching and other machining operations. The cutting geometries and the substrates can both be adapted to the materials being machined.

 

 

Gear Machining Solutions with Horn Tools

Complete machining of a Cyclo-Palloid Gear with HORN Tooling:

Horn has developed highly efficient gear machining processes for the Gear Industry.  We showcase here an example of machining a Cyclo-Palloid Gear with a HORN tooling solution.  The wide profile is opened with a custom multi-row M279 milling cutter, then the flanks are alternately roughed. The root diameter is machined with a DS cutter, the flanks are finished with a DGVZ tool and the sharp edges are chamfered with a DS cutter.

 

 

We showcase below another example of Gear Cutting with Horn Tools, from the machining of the Cyclo-Palloid Gear Teeth to the machining of External and Internal Splines by Broaching and Power Skiving.

Horn Mini 108: Targeted Chip Breaking

We are pleased to showcase the HORN Mini system 108 with threading geometry suitable for turning ISO metric internal threads in partial and full profile. The chip breaker geometry enables the production of short chips, even with hard-to-cut and long-chipping materials. This reduces the risk of chip build-up and prevents swarf from becoming entangled around the tool holder, increasing process reliability. Targeted chip breaking also makes it easier to handle chips.
