Slater Tools has expanded its line of rotary broaching tool holders for CNC, screw and Swiss lathe machines and milling machines.

It now offers 38 different Swiss broach holders.

This is nearly double the current offering of tool holders in the Slater Rotary Broaching Catalog.

Rotary broaching tools are used to put hex and square-shaped holes into metal parts such as aerospace and orthopaedic bone screws.

In 2006, Slater began to offer adjustment-free rotary broaching tool holders to complement the existing line of adjustable tool holders commonly used in screw machines.

This year, the shank sizes for all Swiss-type holders have been expanded to include new diameters.

The increase in variety allows more CNC machines and CNC lathes to accept the tool holders without alteration.

Slater is also offering some of the holders with longer shank lengths, to suit the different positions the broach holder can be installed at within the work area of modern machines.

Along with changes in turning centres and CNC machines, Slater has seen a change in the size of precision machined components being produced.

The increased volume of micro-size parts for aerospace and medical customers has also increased the interest in micro broaching operations.

The Swiss-type tool holders are suited for applications where the size of the form to be broached is less than 0.050in (1.3mm) major diameter.

All of the new broaching tools are designed to work with broaches in this size range.

Any standard-length square broach, hexagon broach, or custom form broach will fit these CNC machine tools.

Slater Tools’ rotary broaching and screw machine tools operate throughout the world on CNC, Swiss, milling and screw machines and lathes.

Slater’s Swiss and standard broach holders and machine attachments have helped thousands of precision metalworking customers.

Industries that rely on Slater Tools’ precision products include plumbing, medical and aerospace.
