GenSwiss will feature its rotary broaching attachment for Star SR, ECAS & SW series machines. The attachment enables broaching from various flange-mounted toolstations, providing operators with more flexibility for setting up a particular job. The units feature a face-mounting plate with the Star toolholder bolt pattern and the same adjustment-free design of GenSwiss 2160 series holders. According to GenSwiss, the attachments are are interference-free in most situations and the 77-mm hangout from flange to tip of broach tool clears the subspindle on most Star machine models. The head diameter is 28 mm, which enables use in subspindle applications with limited space.

In addition, the compact size enables the unit to fit into tight tooling positions without losing adjacent ID stations. A “no center indicating” capability enables faster and easier setups, while the direct-mounting feature eliminates the need to install the holder in a bushing, thereby reducing vibration, increasing rigidity and center accuracy, and providing longer tool life.
