RFOPB5000 Broach Tool – Hand Held.APPLICATION:
Fluid Fitting port machining and Fitting installation procedure
This broach tool, when used in arbor, hydraulic presses or manually, is designed to produce serrations in the counterbore wall of ports prepared per PS10035. The tool will broach aluminum, magnesium, and many steels with hardness of 32 HRC or less. Successful broaching of harder or tougher material may be accomplished, but tool cutter wear is to be expected.
Select the port serration tool for the fitting. This is a hand held serration tool, also known as a basic broach, Impact type. The pilot is inserted into the tap drill hole of PS10035 port, and sufficient force applied to the top of the mandrel to allow the cutter to broach into the counterbore. When the external shoulder of the mandrel contacts the internal shoulder of the body*, broaching is complete. If cutter sticks in counterbore, turn the nut in a clockwise direction to extract the cutter. Caution: nut is for cutter removal only and is not a stop. Always back off nut when broaching. Hole can be tapped before or after broaching.
