Razorform Tools' indexable-insert style broaching tool for use in CNC lathes with locking spindle broaches keyways from 1/8" to 1/2". The TiN-coated razor sharp carbide insert lasts three to four times as long as brazed carbide inserts. The tool design also allows for the insert to be removed and rotated or replaced while the tool remains locked in the turret, saving 10 to 15 minutes of setup time re-zeroing the machine.
The tough, heat treated O-1 tool steel and the design of the insert and insert pocket, provide stability during the cut, reducing chatter. The removable carbide inserts mean one tool will last virtually forever, replacing only the inserts as you cut more parts.
