CNC Keyseat Broaching Duotec Testimonial
The downloadable broach tool prints here: Broach Tool Centerline For Programming are for all eleven standard keyway slotting tool sizes and have the dimension from the centerline of our broach tool to the top of the keyway broach insert. If you do not take the time to find the center you may crash. As you could be taking to much of a cut for your radial depth.
The Forgotten Keyway Broach Dimension: A keyway, internal or external, has three dimensions. However, when going over applications with clients for Internal Keyways CNC Broach Tools needs clients to provide us with four dimensions. Not the drawing, just four dimensions. They are:
We recently ran up against a tough lot of Monel sockets requiring slotting six places through a helix. The material was far harder than usual, and our usual rotary broach couldn’t handle it. Because the run was short, we couldn’t spend a lot on tooling. The CNC Broach Tool Company tool cut the nasty stuff beautifully, even though the interrupts, and got the job done with less burring and deformation. Even managed to salvage the part that the old broach broke down on. Good job! Thanks for the help.
We currently implemented a broach tool from CNC Broach Tool Company, it was a broach application that was not a through hole which required us to look into farming out this application. With implementing the CNC Broach Tool Company tool we were able to not only keep this operation in-house, we were able to combine it to the lathe operation and also because of that we were able to add the drill and tap cross holes to make it complete in one operation which is always a cost saving if you don’t have to handle the parts more than once. Centerline held really well because the bore and the broached keyway were done in the same operation.

Frequently CNC Broach gets asked for a longer internal keyway length to broach than our standard slotting tool can reach. One-off special broach toolbars take much more time and money as opposed to modifying our off-the-shelf standard CNC Slotting Tool. Here are three solutions that have been tried and proven by many clients. The attached pictures were provided by clients that were happy with the result:
Thank you Derby Machine for your testimonial on how to ID broach 304 stainless!
“We had a blind hole to id broach in 304 stainless and found it difficult to find a vendor who could broach our part to print. We were forced to ship our parts from Kansas to Chicago to get them broached. It cost us $15 per part with a $100 set-up fee plus shipping to and from Chicago. Our parts were continuously damaged in shipping so we began to ship them in ammo boxes for protection.
While searching the internet we found a broaching tool at www.cncbroachtools.com. We were very skeptical but had nothing to lose and decided to give them a shot. When we received the tool and started setting up the machine John was very helpful in instructing us on how to install the tool correctly and worked with us to get our program, feeds, and speeds correct.
This tool paid for itself several times over on the first run alone. We get well over 100 parts on a single insert point with a cycle time increase of only 2 minutes 14 seconds. We have ran over a thousand parts using very few inserts and never lost the tool itself we have never scrapped any parts because of the broach. It holds the broach depth and width thru the whole run. I am extremely happy with the results and cost saving of this tool and would recommend it to anyone who has an id broach issue or would like to machine their part complete.
