Paul Horn GmbH is expanding its 220 cartridge system to cover virtually every grooving insert type in the company’s portfolio. It is possible to clamp all cartridges directly and quickly in universal holders – and the system’s T-shaped interface offers stability and a high level of precision during cartridge exchange.
All variants feature an interface between the holder and cartridge for an internal coolant supply. The jet emerges from the clamping finger and support to target coolant directly at the point of cutting. If required, users can close off the upper opening of the coolant supply with a screw.
Horn offers radial grooving cartridges for the following insert types: S100, S224, S229, S274, 34T, 312, S315, S316 and the S64T six-edged grooving insert. For axial grooving, the cartridges suit the S25, S224 and S229 systems.
The versatile system supports a large number of groove widths, groove depths and parting-off operations, as well as substrates and coatings tailored to the workpiece material. Users can select the holders according to the type of machine interface. Horn offers the holders in square or round shank, as well as TS, HSK and polygon interface versions.
According to Horn, the modularity of the tool systems plays a vital role in enabling the flexible and productive use of tools when turning small and medium batches of components. The aim is to reduce set-up times significantly during tool change, thereby making the lathe more efficient. Horn’s system is suitable for use on all types of turning machine, from single-spindle lathes to multi-spindle autos.
