Process reliability and quality are the maxims

With their own in-house developed grinding machines, for tool maker Paul Horn of Tübingen, in-process on the machine measuring is a key function to ensure precision and efficiency of automated operations. The m&h 41.00-PP production touch probes continuously resist persistent coolant showers and grinding dust abrasion.

Tools from the carbide tool manufacturer Paul Horn in Tübingen are known for their high quality standard, cutting performance and sometimes unconventional solutions.

The carbide inserts for these tools are ground on in-house designed machines. Nearly all of these grinding machines are automated. Even small batch sizes of inserts for special cutting tools, such as with individual geometries are produced by automated manufacturing.

In order to ensure consistently high precision of moulds during grinding, permanent measuring as well as in-process, is indispensable. Not just ground moulds are measured. With such close tolerances it is essential to permanently monitor the thermal growth of the machines. During production at Horn they already compensate for deviations of more than 1.5μ on certain machines and indexable inserts. “It’s really about microns here,” confirms Walter Wiedenhöfer, production manager at Horn. Measuring sequences are based upon specific requirements of the products and the prevailing condition of the machine. When production starts, first we measure and compensate, if necessary, after each workpiece. “When the values level off, we extend the measuring interval of the workpieces,” tells Jürgen Bahlinger, responsible for CNC programming and production processes at Horn. . . . .
