Paul Horn GmbH is responding to the requirements of users with their product line expansion to the tool range for slot milling and slot cutting, .
Horn now offers the cutter body of the M310 milling system with an internal coolant supply. This increases the service life of the indexable inserts and therefore reduces tool costs. The internal coolant supply also allows a higher level of precision when slot milling as no heat is transferred from the cutting zone into the component.
What’s more, the flushing action of the coolant, combined with the geometry of the cutting edges, prevents chip jamming in deep grooves.
Horn offers two types of milling and slotting cutter. The screw-in milling cutter is available in diameters from 50 mm (1.969") to 63 mm (2.480") with widths from 3 mm (0.118") to 5 mm (0.197").
As an arbour milling cutter, the main bodies are available with diameters from 63 mm (2.480") to 160 mm (6.300"). The widths are also between 3 mm (0.118") and 5 mm (0.197"). The three-edged S310 carbide inserts are bolted on the left and right of the main body and therefore ensure a good distribution of the cutting forces.
In addition to further geometries for processing different materials, Horn is introducing inserts with a geometry for milling aluminium alloys.
As well as expanding the M310 system, Horn is rounding off the range of the M101 and M383 milling systems.
For the M101 tool, S101 inserts are available from stock with a width of 2.5 mm (0.098").
What’s more, new inserts with an 8-degree lead angle are available especially for slot cutting. For the 383 system, HORN is expanding the range of bodies with diameters of 125 mm (4.921") and 160 mm (6.300").

F&L Technical Sales is excited to announce the launch of a brand new workholding product line for CNC Milling machines! Check out the press release below! We'll be adding more technical information after the product launch and after we return from our training in July! This is exciting stuff!!
Mate Precision Technologies, a global leader in metal forming and metalworking solutions, announced today that it is launching a new line of 52/96 workholding technology for CNC machining operations.
Sundquist explained, “What’s really sets this system apart is that our workholding is designed and built by Mate machinists in our Anoka, Minnesota, facility. They know what machinists want in a workholding system because they want those same things themselves.”
A New Era for Workholding
Leveraging nearly six decades of machining Mate’s workholding line offers an impressive selection of options:
The Mate 52/96 workholding system includes QuickSpecs™, Mate’s unique product identification system. QuickSpecs allows real-time access to critical user data, CAD models and potential integration into business systems. Additionally, the product supports common robotic interfaces and palletizing systems to support factory automation.
This new line is designed and manufactured with Mate’s renowned performance standards for best-in-class accuracy and repeatability. The workholding system is backed by the company’s sophisticated technical support, unsurpassed product quality, responsive customer service, and 100-percent satisfaction guarantee.

The workholding announcement comes shortly after Mate changed its corporate name to Mate Precision Technologies to reflect the company's broader commitment to metalworking and using its expertise to drive innovations to shape the future of factory productivity. In describing the name change Sundquist commented, “It truly supports our mission statement, which focuses on improving our customers’ factory productivity, and we are now better positioned to extend our skills and technologies to other markets like the metal cutting and machining industry.”
