Method of operation

  • The broach is mounted in a square section rack and secured at the top & bottom by clamps.
  • Adjusting screws built into the machine body are set to obtain the correct depth of notch and its position along the specimen.
  • Once set, the adjusting screws provide repeatability for the next specimen.
  • The broach can easily be removed, for re-sharpening or replaced to cut a different type of notch.
  • The sample is secured in the machine by two clamp screws.
  • A light coating of cutting oil is to be applied to the broach and then the hand wheel is operated which draws the broach through the specimen to produce an accurate notch profile.
  • After the notch has been cut, the sample is removed, the broach raised and the broach teeth cleaned, ready for the next sample.
