Swiss-type tooling provider GenSwiss is releasing a line of hexagonal rotary broach tools, each of which features a dished cutting face and vent holes for relieving hydraulic pressure. Two overall lengths will first be introduced to the market, 28 and 32 mm, with hexagonal cutting features ranging from 1.5 to 10 mm in diameter.
Each broach is machined from a proprietary material for use in alloys commonly machined in the medical industry. These rotary broach tools can be used with any holder that can accept an 8-mm shank size for use in Swiss-type CNC machines, CNC lathes and turning centers.
The broach tools are being released within GenSwiss’s Signature Series alongside such products as Ti-Loc end mill extensions, Signature Series saw arbors and compact straddle knurling holders. Signature Series broach tools are engineered and manufactured for use in the aerospace industry and medical industry, among others.
Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
