Spline Rotary Broach Tool
Spline rotary broach tools can be made to international standards or custom made to your specifications. However, most are made to the customer’s specified dimensions. Due to the wide variety of tolerances, tooth width and custom features, Polygon Solutions cannot stock standard spline broaches.
The size of spline forms that can be made by rotary broaching is limited by the amount of material to be removed. Usually, material removal (or tooth height) is limited to .025” per side. This limitation keeps most spline forms under 1 inch diameter.
Oversize pilot holes are required for all spline form rotary broaching applications. The pilot hole will leave a small radius at the inside corners. This radius is often acceptable because contact is still made at the outside of the form.
Due to manufacturing limitations, there is a small radius on the broach at the inside corner of spline teeth. However, this radius cannot be found in the finished product because the oversize pilot hole diameter removes part material in this area. The oversize pilot hole is critical to creating separated chips while broaching and reducing the pressure required to cut the form.
