Keyway Broaching Tool Features and Usage

Keyway broaches are commonly used to form starter holes, remove material, or shape a workpiece. These and other rotary broaches are used in a one-pass operation and have a bar-shaped design with several teeth that can progressively increase in height or shape from the starting end. A keyway broach also will produce a polished finish on an end product.
