The Forgotten Keyway Broach Dimension

Understanding the Depth Radial Keyway Dimension The Forgotten Keyway Broach Dimension: A keyway, internal or external, has three dimensions.

They are:     1) The Width of the keyway and the specific width tolerance needed   2) The Bore size that the tool and insert must fit into   3)  The Length of Stroke needed. Most refer to this as the Depth. Specifically it is the Axial Depth of the application.   4)

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!

Blind Keyway Broaching for CNC Lathe

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

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: Turn the “neck” of the tool back for a longer keyway stroke (see pic) Braise a couple of inches to the “butt” of the broach tool, turn both pieces
