Collet Chuck-Style Broach Toolholders

Facebook Share Icon LinkedIn Share Icon Twitter Share Icon Share by EMail icon Print Icon

The new collet chuck-style broach toolholders are said to be versatile because they use ER-style collets, which are designed to reduce the three-screw method of centering the HSS broach in the broach toolholder. The ER-style collet will hold virtually any diameter shank broach tool in the holder within the range of the collet.  A built-in stop screw allows the operator to adjust for different length broaches and to compensate for different lengths on re-sharpened broaches.

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.

 

Successful applications include the producing of various internal-shaped forms such as hex, square, double hex, straight spline, involute spline, multi keyway, knurl and socket heads.

  • 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.

  • The Humble Pull Stud

    I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.

  • Too Small To Touch

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
