Under a joint sales agreement with Boehlerit, Ringwood-based Horn Cutting Tools Ltd (www.phorn.co.uk
) has introduced to the UK market an expanded 3-D milling programme for the tool- and mould-making industry.
The ISO 00P is a universal tool system for general mechanical engineering and mould making; and because inserts are mounted in a neutral position in the tool-holder, they ensure a high level of contouring accuracy.
That said, despite the neutral position, the edge geometry allows a soft cut to be achieved.
With its RhombItec system, Boehlerit is providing a universal finishing tool for all standard materials and applications.
The indexable inserts offer high levels of manufacturing precision and long tool life, while the axial and radial wiper geometry ensures high levels of productivity and surface quality, along with vibration-free finishing — even at large depths of cut.
Meanwhile, the BallTec and TorroTec milling systems are multi-functional tools designed to achieve high levels of productivity.
They allow users to save on tool-holders, because these ball-nose copying tools can undertake both semi-finishing and finishing operations.
Boehlerit also offers a wide variety of indexable inserts and tool-holders.
For example, the company’s carbide shanks with brazed insert seat ensure ‘excellent’ vibration damping and ‘exceptional’ surface quality on workpieces, while its use of ultra-fine carbides for the inserts ensures high levels of both wear resistance and fracture resistance, which in turn increase process reliability.
All variants have an internal coolant supply.
