Blind Keyway Broaching Monel Interrupted Cut

Blind Broaching Monel

Thank you Karl for your testimonial on blind keyway broaching monel interrupted cut!

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.

Blind Keyway Broaching for CNC Lathe

Monty Twingstrom Testimonial

Thank you Monty Twingstrom for your testimonial on blind keyway broaching for your CNC Lathe!

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.

Programming the Broaching Process

PROGRAMMING the BROACHING PROCESS for CNC BROACHING SYSTEMS

The Keys to Programming CNC Broach Tools PDF contains valuable tips accumulated over 12 years of feedback from machine shops about programming the broaching process for CNC broaching systems and using your lathe or mill as a CNC Broaching Machine.
Back when this patented broach tool (US Patent # 8,622,669,B2) was sold through Razorform Tools, we failed to offer broach program process support for our CNC broaching system. CNC Broach Tools is now very excited to add this level of service for our lathe and mill broaching tools.

Keyway Slotting Tool Broach Length

Keyway Slotting Tool Broach Length

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:

  1. Turn the “neck” of the tool back for a longer keyway stroke (see pic)
  2. Braise a couple of inches to the “butt” of the broach tool, turn both pieces so they are concentric, and then clamp on the longer length of the slotting tool
  3. Mount the broach tool in a home-made holder that extends it out, The attached pic shows a 13” long keyway being cut without the bar being modified

ID Broach in 304 Stainless Testimonial

Derby Machine Client Testimonial

Thank you Derby Machine for your testimonial on how to ID broach 304 stainless!

Click here for YouTube video >> Derby Machine Testimonial

“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.

Sincerely,
Mike Turner

CNC Broach Tools Insert and Tool Life Testimonial

Accurate Gear & Machine, Inc.

Thank you Accurate Gear & Machine for your insert and tool life testimonial!

To Whom It May Concern:

Accurate Gear and Machine, Inc. purchased a 3/16” CNC Broach Tool for internal keyways for our Fellows CNC Shaping Machine to cut keyways into 200 pieces of 8620 material. The insert life is incredible. We were able to cut 130 pieces with one cutting edge and their inserts have two! This tool came with a standard 3/4” shank that we modified into a #2 Morse taper (medium) for rigidness.

200 IPM at .0008” DOC gave us cycle times of 1min 20 sec per part.

We were very satisfied with the longevity of the tool life and exceptional service and lead time was provided. We look forward to purchasing additional tooling in the near future.

Sincerely,
Corey Smith

Tusk Manufacturing Inc. Testimonial

Thank you Tusk Manufacturing for your testimonial!

Hello John,
 
I just wanted to let you know that I was very impressed using your broaching tool for the first time this past week! The job was an aluminum casting that required a keyway width of .126+-.001 and a radial depth of .075 for a length of 1.500 machined on a Doosan Lynx 220 LSYC Lathe. Made 55 castings without any wear or change in size. The walls had little to no taper and the finish was beautiful. This was definitely one of our better tooling purchases this year and I look forward to see what doors this will open for us in the future. Thanks again.
