Paul Horn (USA and Mexico) have recently added several cutting tool products to its offerings, including the System Mini tool system for threadcutting by turning; its DDHM/DSFF tools for carbide and core drilling; and a range expansion for its M310, 383 and M101 slot milling tools.
With sintered chip breaking geometries, the System Minis enable stability through chip breaking in difficult-to-cut materials, and provide optimum chip control with pitches offered from 0.5-2.5 mm and diameters starting at 8 mm. This product is available in the standard program System Mini 108, 111, 114 and 116.
The DDHM/DSFF tools are said be able to economically machine sintered carbides. They can drill into solid materials up to 10 times in diameter as well as core drill threads. The tools also avoid the need for long eroding processes.
The slot milling tool range expansion offer higher performance through targeted internal cooling, a larger cutting diameter for increased flexibility and new cutting widths, grades and geometries.
