Paul Horn GmbH now offers users its proven Supermini tool holder system with face clamping as a set, thereby responding to customer requests for different tooling system heights. The new Supermini Set will be presented for the first time at AMB 2022 in Stuttgart in Hall 1, Stand 1J10. With this holder variant, clamping is not carried out via the lateral surface of the cutting insert but via a clamping wedge on the face. This results in a greater holding force on the insert and thus high rigidity of the entire system. Furthermore, this style of clamping increases repeatability when changing the insert and provides better utilisation of the available space. This turns out to be a great advantage on Swiss-type lathes, as the user can change the cutting insert without removing the tool holder.
The set consists of a round shank holder and three different clamping elements. The latter are suitable for the three different insert heights of the Supermini system, 03, 04 and 05. A customer can select the desired diameter of the round shank holder when ordering. Horn offers it in the diameters 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 20 mm, 22 mm, 25 mm and 28 mm. Inch dimensions are available in 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" and 1" diameters. All sets are available from stock.
