Cutting Tools Horn and Boehlerit embark on joint sales cooperation for ISO turning, milling
Germany/Austria – Cutting Tool specialist Paul Horn used the opportunity of AMB, a home match for the Swabian company, to unveil a strategic innovation. Two independent carbide and tool manufacturers are about to embark on a joint sales cooperation for ISO turning and milling tools: Horn in Tübingen and Boehlerit in Kapfenberg (Styria, Austria). As part of this, Horn will be responsible for selling Boehlerit-branded ISO turning and milling tools in Germany, France, the UK, the USA and China.
According to Horn, the aim of this sales cooperation is twofold. Firstly, it will enable the two medium-sized companies to combine the product and sales synergies of their organisations and, secondly, it is an opportunity for the family-run businesses to grow together on carefully targeted markets. As far as Horn is concerned, the Boehlerit range of ISO turning tools perfectly complements the products from its own internationally leading grooving range.
Similarly, the new Boehlerit milling range will enable Horn to enhance its own portfolio of high-performance products by introducing a wide selection of top-performing and highly productive milling tools. In this way, Horn says it will be able to build on its leading position as a supplier of tools for technically demanding applications by establishing itself in the area of general machining as well.
Boehlerit’s range of high-end milling tools is based on eight innovative tool systems. These include two multifunctional tool systems that support two different machining operations with just one main body, thereby cutting the body-related and storage costs. In total, there are 12 new milling grades.
