Horn USA recently expanded its circular milling system 304 with new thread milling inserts to perform in diameters of 8 mm (.315”).
The precision tools are available as partial and full-profile versions for the production of threads by helical interpolation. Triple-edged inserts in the 304 system already exist for groove milling, finish boring, and chamfering.
The new threading inserts spin on diameter 7.7 mm (.303”). Vibration dampening carbide shanks with integral through coolant ports make the system versatile and easy to use.
The HORN circular milling system offers users a host of process advantages. It is fast, reliable, and produces good surface finishes.
During the machining process, the tool plunges into the material either at an angle or almost horizontally and is then driven on a helical path. Threads can be manufactured at a highly reproduceable level of consistent quality.
Circular interpolation has a wide range of applications and can be more economical when strategically applied when machining steel, special steels, titanium, and alloys.
HORN’s circular milling tools are engineered for precision machining of grooves, threads, t-slots, profile milling and other circular interpolation processes.
