Grooving and Parting-Off Stainless Materials
Processing stainless materials places extremely high requirements on the tool with respect to resistance and potential plastic deformation. Selecting the right carbide grade and geometry plays a central role. Due to its enhanced mechanical stability, machining this material presents a challenge with regard to heat generation, cutting forces and chip control. In this presentation, you will learn how to counteract wear mechanisms such as flank wear and the benefits of selecting the right tool, particularly internally cooled tools, with respect to machining.
Presented by Chris Foschaar | Horn USA
Longitudinal Turning – Producing complex turned parts
State-of-the-art series production of small parts places high requirements on the tools involved. Due to the restricted space available in the work area of the Swiss-type lathes that are used, the tools need to have a small and compact design, yet still satisfy the high quality requirements of mass production processes. Tool systems from HORN are an impressive example of how this problem is tackled.

The Role of Precision Tools in the Added-Value Chain
The requirements placed on precision tools as a technology carrier have increased considerably over the last few years. In addition to maximum productivity, other factors are increasingly playing a crucial role when it comes to using them successfully. Virtual production processes including data availability and an ever-changing variety of materials that require machining mean that the services provided by tool manufacturers have to be constantly adapted to suit machine requirements. This presentation aims to highlight a selection of the challenges presented by the machining processes of the future

Trochoidal Hard Milling with Solid Carbide Endmills
Trochoidal milling involves dynamically routing the milling tool on a trochoidal path. The maximum pressure angle is defined by the material properties. This material removal method greatly reduces the engagement time of the milling cutter and significantly reduces the amount of thermal load. Utilizing reduced cutting widths, and therefore reduced cutting forces, allow high axial cutting depths, which enable large machining volumes to be achieved. This technical presentation will demonstrate the benefits of this milling method and provide important background information on the topics of wear, cutting data and applications.

Milling and Slotting Cutters – New opportunities for high-precision production
When it comes to separating the workpiece with high cutting values, milling and slotting cutters are the tools to use. They can be used in many ways and offer optimum results with even the most varied of materials. The benefits are their high repeat accuracy and how easy it is to change the screwed-in indexable inserts. What's more, the indexable inserts can be adapted to the material with respect to their carbide grade and chip shape geometry. This presentation will show you how using the right insert will enable you to achieve a reliable and cost-efficient machining process.

Tangential Milling – Effectiveness and quality
Tangential milling technology is a key addition to the area of milling tools. In this technical presentation you will get an insight into our standard range and the results that we have achieved. Key topics include the material removal rate, options for special solutions and the important combination of state-of-the-art machines and high-performance tools.
Presented by Jeff Shope | Horn USA
Molding Tools and Special Tools in Series Production
Work processes can often be structured more economically and efficiently by using a special tool and there are a wide range of ways to optimize these. For example, several machining operations can be carried out, without the need for long tooling times or tool changes. This presentation will show you both the benefits and applications of special molding tools as well as tool solutions that have already been successfully implemented from small-scale to large-scale processes.
Presented by: Chris Smith | Horn UK
Wear Parts – Reducing costs through the use of high-performance carbide rods
Durable and high-performance wear parts form the focus of this presentation. A constantly optimised manufacturing process and extensive new developments are prerequisites for high quality and efficiently reducing costs. Whether fully or raw sintered round rods, flat or square rods, the options and applications are extremely varied. High-quality carbide blanks and rods are the basis and guarantee for a high-performance final product.
