Posted on 15 Apr 2024 and read 563 times
Versatile tool holder for Horn grooving systemTool manufacturer Horn, represented in the UK by Ringwood-based Horn Cutting Tools Ltd has combined the attributes of various tool holders into one to provide a new version with two connections to suit the user’s coolant delivery equipment.

The holder has been designed for the popular 224 indexable insert grooving tool range.

One connection suits a VDI system that directs coolant to the cutting edge via the insert’s clamping finger, while the other is a threaded G 1/8 connector on the side leading to a hole on the other side of the insert to deliver coolant to the flank face. The two circuits cannot be used simultaneously.

The holder is of compact design and is offered with a 16, 20 or 25mm square shank. All sizes are available from stock for widths of cut of 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6mm.

The shanks are made of high-strength steel, which ensures accurate location of the insert seat, leading to rigidity and hence long service life.
