One capability we have, that is quite unique for job shops, is our ability to BROACH. This capability has enabled us be a premiere supplier to many of the top connector manufacturers.
Senga’s Broaching Department is comprised of 8 NC computer controlled, single-point part shapers. These machines are custom designed to allow Senga the ability to produce keys, keyways, and slots on both ID and OD surfaces.
These machines are heavily used to support the Connector Industry in allowing us to perform the broaching requirements of receptacle shells & plug shells bringing the components to a more complete state. Over the years we’ve developed the ability to broach ID surfaces of softer metals, such as, aluminum on our turning centers, which has freed up our broaching centers to concentrate primarily on harder metals, such as stainless steel; and for OD broaching requirements, such as keys.
These machines are suited for use on a wide range of materials from engineered plastics to titanium. These machines can broach depths of up to 7/8”.
