Broaching machines are utilized for the secondary process of “broaching,” a machining method that removes material by passing the part across a toothed tool, called a broach. The broach tool looks similar in profile to the blade of a saw, except the teeth increase in height over the length of the tool. Since the teeth of the broach tool are progressive, the material is removed in one pass and the process is very efficient.
Broaching is used to generate odd, non-round, or otherwise asymmetric shapes. Flats on the end of an axle are a typical example.
