Face Grooving System Extended
The range of face grooving products offered by Horn has been expanded to include new holder variants for its S224 double-edged system for producing axial grooves from 38 mm to one metre in diameter. Due to the availability of a wide range of chipbreaker geometries and substrates, the tool system can be easily adapted to the machining application and workpiece material.
The tool manufacturer has extended its modular concept so that various types of cartridge can be clamped using a single base holder. Internal coolant allows direct cooling at the contact zone to prolong tool life and improve chip removal from the groove. Coolant supply is via a transfer point on the base holder. The cartridges can also be used on older Horn holders, but without through coolant.
The axial holders are available in the following versions: LAK (left, external), RAK (right, external), LIK (left, internal) and RIK (right, internal). Maximum groove depth is 14 mm and widths range from 3 mm to 6 mm.
