Maximizing Your Tooling Investment
Have you looked at the amount you spend on broaching tools recently? If not, it’s worth doing. While the amount may surprise you, it’s always important to keep this cost in mind. You need to factor broach and other tooling costs into your day-to-day operating expenses to know how profitable your business is.
Quality machine and CNC tooling isn’t an incidental cost. It’s an investment that affects many aspects of your business:
• Quality: With quality broach tools, you can hold tighter tolerances and make less scrap.
• Productivity: You need fewer adjustments and changeovers with the right tools.
• Time: Downtime is minimized when your broach tools can keep up the pace.
Thanks to our CNC broach sharpening and regrinds, we can help you maximize all three factors. You get added value from your tools that you can pass on to your customers to satisfy their needs.
At Colonial Tool, we use precision CNC machining to repair your tools without removing more material than necessary. When you add this up over years of broaching tool use, we can greatly extend the life of your tooling. Some of our customers have been able to extend the life of their tools by over 50% thanks to our advanced precision broach sharpening. Think of what that would do for your bottom line!

CNC Sharpening Benefits
Regardless of whether your sharpening is done in-house or your company is using a vendor to re-sharpen your broach tools, the process will only be optimized if the tools are sharpened on a CNC tool grinder. We understand that it may be more convenient to send broaches out to a local sharpening guy who will handle anything that needs sharpening. Many times these local guys offer free pickup and delivery, and they do it quickly. But very few of these local shops have dedicated CNC broach tool re-sharpening equipment like us. It might alternatively seem tempting to utilize internal personal that have some manual sharpening ability. On the surface it seems this would be lower in cost; after all, who doesn’t want to keep it local or in-house? Nothing could be farther from the truth. If your broach tools are not CNC made and CNC sharpened throughout their life, your company is wasting money in every case. The following is a list of the benefits of CNC sharpening, and after reading it you will intuitively know what you need to do in order to get double the life from your broach tools
- Even stock removal from each tooth
- The use of coolant while grinding
- Consistent geometry every time
- Smooth surface finish with proper blending
- Thin burrs that are easily removed before broaching
- Reduced tool warping and bending during grinding
- More regrinds per tool
- Faster than conventional grinding
- Repeatable results
- Less labor intensive
