Our Program In Action

A major agriculture equipment manufacturer was crashing several of their large rotary broach segments in a crankshaft application. The expensive indexable cutting tools were far too costly to replace with new and the engineering staff needed a cost effective solution. They had tried other repair sources but their inability to match the original hardness of the pockets, and to control pocket locations, was reducing tool life. Carbide Tool Services was able to complete a thorough broach segment evaluation and develop detailed indexable tool repair plan for repairing the segments back to OEM condition and hardness. The customized indexable tool repair program allowed the customer to repair all of their rotary broaches for a fraction of the replacement cost. They were able to stop purchasing expensive replacements and reduce annual spending. The quality of the repaired broaches often out produced the new segments. Overall the repair program had documented $90,000 in cost savings annually for the manufacturer.
