A new rotary broaching attachment for the Swiss screw machine industry, dubbed the “Baby Swiss,” is available from Schlitter Tool (www.schlittertool.com).
The attachment has a small profile and quick-set design that eliminates an otherwise lengthy setup.
The holder is available with metric and inchsized shanks and is designed for broaching forms less than 0.375 in. (10-mm) in diameter on Swiss, Davenport and small CNC’s.
Rotary broaching attachments enable the manufacture of complex forms, such as hexes, splines and other regular shapes, in nearly any metal on nearly any machine while eliminating secondary operations.
