Slater Tools: Number one for Rotary Branding

Thrust Lbs. for Internal/External Broaching for Common Materials

Approximate Axial Loads by Broach Forms & Materials (Lbs.)

  • The table is provided as a reference to compare loads between various forms, sizes and materials.
  • Rotary broaching is a cutting process, requiring very little pressure (low axial machine loads).
  • Minimal pressure is generated when following Slater Tools’ workpiece preparation recommendations. See pages 34 and 35.
  • The tool holder takes the brunt of the broaching forces, not the machine.
  • Actual loads should be less than the values in the table.
