TD2017 Presentations


  • Economic Titanium Machining with High-Feed Milling

    • The milling of titanium presents significant challenges for the entire process. Among other things, the presentation shows the results of the joint project “SchwerSpan”, which implemented user-oriented solutions to create a novel tool design.

  • Turbo and Rotary Whirling - Redefining Thread Cutting

    • The increasing economic importance of thread whirling means that it is necessary to rethink the process that has been in use since 1942. TurboWhirling® and rotary whirling are two new processes which bring about a significant increase in performance in the production of threads.

  • Perfect Gear Teeth

    • Gear teeth can now be produced with a number of different processes. The optimal machining process is determined based on the module size, the expected number of pieces and other conditions.

  • Trends for Grooving and Parting Off

    • At HORN, we know that the tool plays a major role in the machining process. This presentation focuses on new grooving systems for grooving and parting off. Learn how to use the latest technology in a versatile and high-performing way.

  • Micro-Machining on Lathes - Precision Leads to Success

    • Micro-machining on lathes places high demands on the tool, machine and operator. The smallest feed rates, lowest cutting depths and the highest surface quality require innovative tool solutions. The presentation demonstrates how the combination of high-precision cutting edges, micro-grain carbides and innovative coatings fulfils the quality requirements in the micro-turning range.

  • High-Performance Milling Systems

    • Modern one-off and series production of different components places high requirements on the milling tools involved. In order to be able to use high-performance milling systems in a long-term and stable manner, a large number of prerequisites are required. On the one hand, these include the basic geometrical concepts of the tooling systems, and on the other hand, the important combination of the machine, workpiece and tool concept. This presentation provides an insight into the conceptual design of milling systems and the resulting application possibilities.

  • Coatings

    • The right choice of coating is a key factor in tool design. Depending on the application, very different requirements apply to the machining process and therefore also to the high-performance coating of the tool. HORN provides an insight into today’s highly complex coating technologies.

  • Precision Sintered Requirements of Cutting Tool Interfaces

    • Precision cutting tools require accuracy and repeatability. Learn about the unique manufacturing challenges of precision sintering free-form surfaces with tolerances in the range of microns. Related topics also cover specialized measurement techniques and additional considerations made to produce dependable results.
