The focus of Horn’s Technology Days this year was on processes based on the optimal interaction of tool, workholding and machine. “Only those who have mastered the entire machining process can achieve the best results with the tool used,” said Markus Horn, Managing Director of Paul Horn.

With informative technical presentations on eight different topics, live machining demonstrations, industry-specific exhibition areas and extensive freedom of movement around production areas, visitors had an opportunity to experience every facet of Horn. 35 co-exhibiting companies rounded off the programme.

Exhibits included several sports cars, a Radical custom motorbike, the Prometheus combustion chamber for an Ariane 6 engine, medical products, watches and jewellery, emphasising the diverse range of applications for Horn tools.

The Zyklo Med joint project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) was another highlight of the event. The project involves the production of functionally integrated implants through novel synchronised-cyclical machining processes. The participating partners Index, Paul Horn, Beutter Präzisions-Komponenten and the WBK Institute for Production Engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology demonstrated their expertise in medical technology by machining a bone pin and a bone screw.

In addition to Horn's two manufacturing plants, which mainly involve insert and holder production, visitors were given an insight into the production of carbide and various shaping processes on modern equipment at Horn Hartstoffe. The tool manufacturer also announced that it is expanding its capacity in the area of additive manufacturing. The next Horn Technology Days will take place in 2025.
