Rotary Broaching Holders & Attachments
- Ideal for Vertical Machining Centers / Milling Machines (VMC)-

Rotary Broaching is a process that is not limited to Manual & CNC Lathes. The Broaching process can also be implemented in Vertical machining centers (VMCs) and milling centers. Our Swiss-type broach holder is ideal for converting over to a milling operation as it does not require center locating. This process enables the formation of polygon broach profiles on complex workpieces in a vertical machine setup without performing secondary broaching operation on a separate machine.

How Rotary Broaching Works in a Vertical Machining Center

Steps taken to pre-drill for the broach are the same as if the job were being performed in a lathe.

1. Drill a pilot hole to at least the same size as the minor diameter of the broach profile to be formed.

2. Chamfer slightly larger than the major diameter of the broach form.

3. Bring the tool into contact with the workpiece. Note the tool will become stationary as the rotary broach holder continues to rotate in the milling spindle.

4. Feed to the depth required. It is recommended to not exceed 1.5X the broach profile's minor diameter.

5. Rapid or Feed out of the hole. Traverse to next part in the workholding unit, or to additional pilot holes requiring broaching.
