What is external broaching?

External broaching uses a cutting tool designed with teeth that are engineered progressively to the configuration on the outside of the part.

External broaching can be accomplished through horizontal or vertical broaching. Horizontal and vertical broaching pulls or pushes the broach through or past the part in order to achieve an external cut. External broaching slots and forms is best used accomplished on softer metals, such as aluminum and stainless steel, but some broaching machines are also equipped to work with carbon fiber and plastic.

External broaching slots and forms is intended to quickly and efficiently produce large quantities of heavily used, precision components. Broaching is the fastest way to effectively remove material from a part or product. Broaching is more efficient and economical than CNC machining, turning or milling, which is a slower, more cumbersome process that can vastly degrade the material. Milling can takes up to 10 times longer to remove what is needed to create the desired form.
