Diamond-tipped boring tools from Horn Featured

Diamond-tipped Supermini and Mini tools with internal cooling are the latest additions to the products for boring, profiling and grooving offered by Horn Cutting Tools. The new ranges of insert tooling are suited to machining aluminium, sintered carbide, ceramics and plastics. Non-ferrous materials that are either very abrasive due to their high silicon content or have a tendency to exhibit chipping problems and form built-up edges, can also be machined.

Supermini tools with CVD-D or PCD cutting edges are available in diameters from 1.5 mm and with three different geometries. H0 geometry, with a rake angle of 0°, is for machining hard, brittle materials such as carbides, pre-sintered ceramic materials, graphite and short-chipping brass. H5 geometry, featuring a rake angle of 5°, is designed for machining abrasive-content materials that include aluminium alloys impregnated with silicon and fibre-reinforced plastics. Diamond is also used successfully as a cutting material without chipping problems when working with precious metals and non-ferrous heavy metals such as platinum, iridium, gold, tantalum and titanium, as well as sintered metals like tungsten copper.

Finally, HF chip-breaker geometry is said to solve machining problems caused by uncontrolled, stringy swarf. It is intended for use on long-chipping, non-ferrous metals such as wrought aluminium alloys, as well as copper and its alloys like bronze and lead-free and low-lead (long-chipping) brass.
