Products manufactured by Federal Broach include helical broaches
, which are used for machining the helical gears found in motor vehicle automatic transmissions, and "Pine tree" type broaches(2), which are mainly used in machining parts for aircraft engines and power generation systems.
It supplied broaches
to cut the internal, external, and blind splines for gears that go into automotive power-train parts.
Tooling for the MorrisKeyseater is approximately one-third the cost of traditional broaches
. Larger endmills can be sharpened and reused unlike broaches
Tooling for the system is about 33 percent less than that of traditional broaches
. Larger endmills can be sharpened and reused.
There is no concern with the different labor grades that are required to do the tool setting, the cost of inventorying very expensive broaches
, the cost of deburring, and the cost of a longer straightening time.
While CF wheels are constantly reshaped for consistent repeatability, and compared to broaches
CF wheels are far less expensive (CBN or ceramic wheels notwithstanding).
tend to be expensive, the cost is justified because of their use for high-production runs.
Minute Man keyway sets from The duMont Company, LLC include keyway broaches
, bushings, and shims designed for cutting 5/8" or 3/4" keyways in six bore sizes from 2-3/8"--3".
To ensure that the tool accurately broaches
the workpiece, at least two teeth must be in contact with the part at all times.
form square, hex, double-hex, spline, serration, and other shapes on all popular machining materials.
That's not to say that traditional vertical broaches
are not safe, efficient, or maintainable They are.
