Indexable Broaching Systems
Indexable Broaching Systems Combine Flexibility & Rigidity to Deliver Superior Performance
With generations of experience delivering American-crafted precision broaching tools, our passion for developing new technologies that solve problems gives our Indexable Broaching Systems the ability to improve productivity, quality and consistency with the right broach in ways that stand the test of time.
We’ve Teamed Up with Global CNC to Make Broaching Possible on Advanced Turning & Milling CNC Machines
To help you get the most out of your machining centers, we’ve combined our duMONT CNC motorized slotters with the right-angle interfaces of Global CNC (GCNC), a leading manufacturer of static and driven tool holders. This collaboration allows you to increase the versatility of your machining centers and enhance productivity.
Whether you use a vertical or horizontal machining center manufactured by Okuma, Mazak, DMG Mori, or any other machine builder, our partnership with GCNC allows you to benefit from a unique combination of broaching expertise and knowledge of machine tool interfaces.
We recently worked with GCNC to develop a right-angle head (pictured) for an Okuma 2SP-2500 machine. The customer, who had asked several of our competitors for assistance before coming to us, needed clearance of the spindles to access the features to be broached efficiently, and with precision and stability. In short, we did what no one else could!
Passing the Test
Although GCNC received proposals from other manufacturers that wanted to partner with them, their testing showed that our duMONT CNC Motorized Slotters are a perfect fit for GCNC’s tool holders. That’s because our indexable broaching systems offer unique capabilities for ID/OD machining and simultaneous deburring of splines, slots, keyways, squares, hexagons, and custom shapes.

Tools for Splined Profiles
The spline profile broach tool line was designed to make splined internal profiles. The choice of tool is determined by the minimum entry hole of the workpiece to be machined. In fact, we recommend purchasing a tool with a diameter (D2) as close to the value of said hole as possible. It is also possible to make special tools in various diameters and sizes based on specific customer needs.
Broaching and Slotting Inserts
The inserts designed to work exclusively with duMONT Tool Holders are a sintered steel alloy with a 13% cobalt content, heat treated to a 72 HRC hardness providing toughness and impact resistance. A TiN coating is applied to improve wear resistance and lubricity. All inserts are designed to allow several re-sharpenings. View the Engineering Section of our catalog below for process and Special Insert information and available applications – Keyways in Tapered Bore, Square, Hexagon and Involute Internal Gears. We can add custom corner radius per your requirement.
Stock Tool Holders for Inch and Metric Keyway and Slotting Inserts
The Tool Holders designed to work exclusively with duMONT Stock Keyway and Slotting Inserts are heat treated tool steel, hardened to 58/60 HRC at the Insert seat providing resistance to deformation and longer tool life. Most Tool Holders provide two 3.55mm holes for Thru Tool Coolant delivery promoting lubrication, cooling and chip flushing improving finish and tool performance. View the Engineering Section of our catalog below for additional process and Special Insert information and available applications – Keyways in Tapered Bore, Square, Hexagon and Involute Internal Gears.
Tools and Inserts for Square
Our series of duMONT tools was developed to execute internal squares. It offers the following advantages: absolute concentricity, the possibility of correcting the required measurement, machining speed and cost savings. Every insert size in this line is able to execute various square sizes, which makes using duMONT tools for squares very economical and convenient.
Tools and Inserts for Hexagon
The duMONT CNC Indexable Broaching System was developed to execute internal hexagons. It offers the following advantages: absolute concentricity, the possibility of correcting the required measurement, machining speed and cost savings. Every insert size in this line is able to execute various hexagonal sizes, which makes using duMONT tools for hexagons very economical and convenient.
