PRODUCT SHOWCASE: New Swiss Type Rotary Broaching Tool Holders from Slater


Slater Tools, Inc., has expanded its line of rotary broaching tool holders for CNC, screw, and Swiss lathe machines and milling machines. With 38 Swiss broach holders now available, the current offering of tool holders in the Slater rotary broaching catalog is nearly doubled. Rotary croaching tools are used to put hex and square shaped holes into metal parts such as aerospace and orthopedic bone screws.

According to Peter Bagwell at Slater Tools, “The expanded use of rotary broaching tool holders in new and used CNC machines has created the need for a larger variety of function and adaptability in these tool holders.” In 2006, Slater began to offer adjustment free rotary broaching tool holders to compliment 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 increasingly different positions the broach holder can be installed at within the work area of modern machines.
