Cutting geometry for recesses

Cutting geometry for recesses

May 4, 2021


Horn presents the FB geometry, a solution for finishing recesses. By standardizing the special cutting geometry, Horn is responding to users’ requests for even better surface quality on the flanks and at the base of a groove of recesses.

This geometry has already been in use successfully for some time as a special solution for producing recesses for sealing rings and shaft seals. High surface qualities are possible without any problems in the finishing process, even when the conditions are unstable. Horn offers the geometry for a variety of systems for external and internal grooving.

The geometry is available as a standard tool for the 224, 229, S34T, 315, and 64T systems for precision machining of external recesses. For internal machining, it is available for the 105, 108, 111, 114, and 216 systems. Further insert types are available as special tools and can be delivered quickly via the Greenline system.
