Collet-Chuck-Style Broach Tool Holders

The versatile collet-chuck-style broach toolholders use ER-style collets, which are said to reduce the time-consuming, three-screw method of centering a high speed steel broach in the broach toolholder. Also, an ER style collet can hold broaches with shanks of virtually any diameter within its range. For example, one holder can hold three different broach tools with varying shank diameters.

The versatile collet-chuck-style broach toolholders use ER-style collets, which are said to reduce the time-consuming, three-screw method of centering a high speed steel broach in the broach toolholder. Also, an ER style collet can hold broaches with shanks of virtually any diameter within its range. For example, one holder can hold three different broach tools with varying shank diameters.

A built-in stop screw allows the operator to adjust for different length broaches and to compensate for different lengths on re-sharpened broaches. The collet-chuck-style broach holder also eliminates the need for centering the cutting tool to “spindle” of the broaching holder, and there are no screws to knock the cutting tool off center, the company says.

The holder can be sued for broaching various internal shaped forms, including hex, square, double hex, straight spline, involute spline, multi keyway, knurl and socket head geometries.

  • Measuring Taper For Toolholders And Spindle Applications

    Companies concerned about strict quality requirements regularly check toolholder tapers for wear or inaccuracy because these conditions can jeopardize the results of a critical operation. However, a shop can check tapers quickly and reliably with air gages. These devices can be used effectively without special operator training. For measuring taper in a production environment, few other methods can match the speed and performance of air, as multiple-circuit air jets can be placed in very small taper gages.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.
