Broaching is a machining process that removes material with a toothed tool called a broach. Broaching is classified into two types: linear and rotary. The broach is run linearly against the surface of the workpiece to produce the cut in linear broaching, which is the more common process.
What is a Broaching Tool?
A broaching tool, sometimes known as a “broach,” is a cutting tool used to remove a specific area or form from a workpiece, frequently on the interior diameter of the piece. The broach is frequently attached to a machine that is propelled by hydraulic pressure or used in a lathe. The material is then removed from the workpiece with each pass of the broach to produce precise features and shapes.
Types of Broaching Tools:
By selecting the best broaching equipment for your shop’s requirements, you may cut production times and improve product perfection. There are numerous varieties of broaching tools available, each with a unique application:
- Rotary Broaches
- Serration Broaches
- Helical Broaches
- Involute Spline Broaches
- Keyway Broach
- Square Broach
- Hex Broach
- Push-Type/Pull-Type Broach
Maintenance and Care Required for Broaching Tools
While there are many advantages to broaching, there is one crucial factor to take into account. To keep them operating at their peak efficiency, broaching equipment and tools require routine maintenance. If the tools are not properly maintained with routine maintenance, their teeth can quickly be destroyed or worn down.
