Rule Processing Equipment


Broaching is simply the machining of a channel in the side of the cutting knife for the purpose of:
1. Eliminating swaging (increasing knife height) at the bend point of the knife.
2. Eliminating Cracking of the face or edge of the knife.
3. Eliminating Knife edge distortion.
4. Allowing a minimum radius to be achieved.
5. Allowing the use of harder knife even on sharp bends and complex shapes.
6. Effectively bend side bevel knife.
7. Produce a “Kiss-Cut” precision die.
8. Allows for the manufacturing of a superior die in less time.
9. Save time and material.
10. Reduces Makeready time on press.
11. Allows for consistent diecut part quality.
12. Aids in achieving greater press productivity.

Up to the present time most machining of a channel was done with expensive grinding equipment that quite often changed the temper of the knife unless a coolant was used. The use of a coolant often times led to corrosion.
Bar-Plate’s new Broaching equipment have no effect on temper. Our new Cost Effective Hand Broacher puts this important diemaking tool within Easy reach of all die shops.
