Double Hex Rotary Broach Tool
Double hex rotary broach tools are all custom made as no international standard exists. However, most are made to the ANSI B18.3 2003 dimensions for Socket Cap, Shoulder and Set Screw Hex Keys. These are the same dimensions used for many of Polygon Solutions’ standard hexagon broaches.
Oversize pilot holes are required for all double hex 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 corners.
Due to manufacturing limitations, there is a small radius on the broach at the inside corner of a double hexagon. 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.
