Compact Burnishing Tools for Swiss-Type Machines


Swiss ID Burnishing Tools by Elliott Tool Technologies are ideal for accurate sizing, low micro-finishing, and surface hardening of ID holes down to 4 mm.

With the tool body completely inside the tool block, the new 5918 series features an adjustment knob which protrudes from the rear of the tool shank, thus allowing the burnishing tool size to be adjusted for diameter without removal from the tool block. 

This cost-effective, easy-to-use tooling improves surface irregularities and tool marks, producing optimum surface finishes of 4-8 Ra in a single pass. This proven technique can eliminate secondary processes such as grinding, honing and polishing by automating those processes in the primary CNC machine. Doing so saves set-up and processing time and labor costs and also enhances machinery utilization and shop floor productivity. 

Compact burnishing tools are ideal for applications where the machine working envelope is limited, as is found in most Swiss-type turning centers, small CNC turning centers and when burnishing parts in sub-spindles where the machine working envelope is reduced.  


  • Diameter Tolerances: 0.0001”
  • Micro-Finishes: 2 to 8 Ra
  • Materials: Most steels, stainless steel, aluminum and other ductile metals
