Special Inserts and Applications
The CNC Indexable Broaching System offers a wide range of Special Design Inserts that provide the opportunity to manufacture parts more efficiently and accurately through single machine processing. When location or timing is a critical design element of the part, the tooling system offers a means to do more work within the same coordinate system. Allow us to put our experience to work for you. Get the right Insert for the material you are machining, the shape or form you require with the programming needed to get your job done. Please contact us at 413-350-5200 .
Machine Squares, Hexagons, and Octagons with Inserts designed with two cutting edges intersecting at the appropriate angle 90, 120 or 135. Cut the corner, rotate the spindle (C axis) as required for the next cut (re-run of the subroutine) and repeat to completion. The same cornering Inserts may be used to generate a range of sizes of the given shape by simply increasing or decreasing the tool offset.
Internal Toothing and Grooving Inserts
Inserts designed to meet industry standards (ANSI, DIN, ISO etc.) as well as nonstandard geometries are available. A chamfering feature may be added in order to produce a burr-free part. One machine processing in the same coordinate system promotes product uniformity and processing efficiencies.
Sharpening - Allow us to extend the life of your inserts
Re-sharpening extends the life of the Insert and saves money. The Inserts that show a decline in surface finish (a sign of wear), can have their life extended through a resharpening process. The Inserts are designed to allow two to three resharpenings, more if tolerances allow. A Sharpening Stem is available for mounting and supporting of an Insert during re-sharpening. The Stem's hexagon shank facilitates the resharpening process. Sharpening must be properly performed using an appropriate grinder and grinding wheel. The original cutting angle must be maintained. Recoating of the Insert is required after sharpening. Contact us for a quote to re-sharpen your inserts to proper manufactured geometry.Previous Page
