Horn USA, Inc. joins the Metal Working Hall

Horn USA, Inc. will be a part of the AME 2017 Metal Working Hall in Grand Rapids on August 24th.  Visit them at booth #1003 from 8 AM - 3 PM.

HORN’s 105 Supermini was recently unveiled. Featuring a new coating, a new substrate and a new micro-geometry, the new Supermini tools set new standards for boring holes between 0.2 mm (0.0079") and 6.8 mm (0.2677"). By introducing this development, HORN has responded to the needs of its customers who contend with higher and higher percentages of stainless/high-alloy/inhomogeneous steels and want to accelerate their throughput.

Suitable for bore diameters between 0.2 mm (0.0079") and 6.8 mm (0.2677"), the 105 Supermini tool system offers more than 1500 cutting insert versions for many different machining tasks. It truly shines in a whole range of applications for boring, grooving, chamfering, part-off reparation, threading, axial grooving, finish-boring, face turning and broaching right down to the smallest of diameters.

Its existing range of uses (machining of steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, hard and exotic alloy materials and machining of small and miniature parts with a special microgeometry) is extended by introducing high-performance version for faster machining of demanding steel grades such as stainless and high-alloy steels as well as those that are inhomogeneous to varying degrees. 


Significant increase in tool life

Comparisons with existing substrates and coatings were carried out in the context of extensive trials and these demonstrated that the new solution resulted improving in a tool life that on existing data. Once secure in this knowledge, HORN made the “high-performance Supermini” available to customers for testing. The documented results of customer trials show that the new EG35 grade is improved: when used on Cobalt Chrome with a strength of 1000 N/mm², the tool life was 60% better. In the case of 1215 Steel and 40CrMoV13-9 Nitriding Steel tool life increased by more than 100%
