Broaching is a machining process that pushes or pulls a cutting tool (called a broach) over or through the surface being machined. Broaches are referred to as multiple-point linear-travel cutting tools and are used to produce flat, circular, and even extremely intricate profiles, as seen from a section perpendicular to the tool travel.

A broach is a series of single-point tools arranged successively in the axial direction along a tool body or holder. Each sequential tooth varies in size and shape in a manner that allows each tooth to cut a chip of the proper thickness.
