Slater Tools’ offers a variety of CNC broaching tools, toolholders and gages. The company features its go/no-go gages, which contribute to print tolerance compliance and reduction of process variations. The gages are produced from oil-hardened M2 high speed steel to within 0.0002" (0.005 mm) and can be custom made to any shape or size. All plug and ring gages are offered for numerous shapes as full form composite, sector or progressive forms. The company also offers long form gage certification upon request.

The company’s rotary broach tools are designed and manufactured to precision tolerances in a range of internal and external shapes and diameters. Multiple series of external and internal rotary broaching toolholders are offered, including adjustment-free versions. Keyways, hexagons, Torx-style sixlobes, serrations, splines and squares are all machined by using partial form broach tools and indexing either the tool or the workpiece, which in turn greatly reduces cutting pressure. 

Slater will also display its punch broaching tools designed for use in applications characterized by tough materials, deep operation and/or high tooth height, chip evacuation challenges and other factors that make them unsuitable for rotary broaching. The tools are also suitable for applications that require no pre-drill marks, excessive material removal, or timing the form to a feature on the part.

Burr-Free Micro Thread Whirling

Threading is usually the last operation when machining components, which is why the process needs to be reliable and highly precise. DC Swiss has developed an internal thread whirler, which leaves micro threads burr-free, even in demanding, hard-to-machine materials.
