Broaching - Advantages and Disadvantages

What is Broaching?

Broaching is a machining process that uses to remove the inner & outer surface of material by using a toothed tool called a broaching.

Advantages of  Broaching:

  1. Broaching is a very efficient way to create complex shapes and slots.
  2. It is a versatile process that can be used to create products in a wide range of materials.
  3. It is a fast process because most of the surface finish gets in a single broach.
  4. Broaching produces clean and accurate cuts, which can improve the performance and lifespan of the finished product.
  5. It is simple to operate.
  6. A less skilled person can operate the machine.
  7. Both internal and external surface finish can be done through this process.

Disadvantages of  Broaching:

  1. Broaching is a complex process, so it can be expensive to set up and run.
  2. The cost of broaching tools is expensive.
  3. Broaching requires close attention to detail, which can make it unsuitable for large-scale production.
  4. Obstructions on the work pice decrease the quality of broaching.
  5. A larger size workpiece cannot be broached.
  6. Workpiece that get to be broached should withstand to high pressures.
  7. Broached parts are also much more difficult to alter after the machine has been programmed.
