Rotary broaching Stainless steel in the VF4. 1/4 inch hex broach from a 1/4″ hole. MLP used a one of it’s HAAS machining production units to complete this task.
Rotary or Wobble Broaching is done on a CNC lathe.
What is Broaching in machining terms? It is a very efficient way to cut internal shapes in parts during the same machine cycle that finishes the part. In the image below a hexagon is shown broached out of the part, but the inside can also be a broached square, or be broached as a spline , or virtually any customized shape. A brass part is featured in the photo below, however many other materials are possible for broaching, including our specialty stainless steel. Have a part you need broached? Contact MLP today.
