Blind Spline Broach Punches and Dies

Blind spline tools are used in applications that do not allow a conventional internal or external broach to pass over or through a part. Federal Broach can design, build and test both spline punches (internal) and dies (external) for all blind hole applications. Sizes range from 0.5 to 8 inches (12 to 200 mm) in diameter.

Common Uses and Advantages of Blind Spline Broaching

Blind spline broaching tools are used in a range of production applications in which conventional broaching tools are prevented from passing through or over the component. Simple examples of blind broaching include the machining of internal hexagons, squares, keyways, or splines within gear component assemblies and custom fasteners. Federal Broach’s blind spline punches and dies are engineered to accommodate far more complex manufacturing applications, such as on-highway vehicle drivetrains.

 In some production applications, blind spline punches and dies are utilized as an alternative to EDM technology. Compared to electrical discharge machining, blind spline broaching is much quicker and more cost-effective – even when the application requires a custom precision-built broach tool.
