Blind-spline broaching allows for the machining of blind surfaces - surfaces that are impeded by a flange or protrusion that does not allow a cutting tool to pass completely through or over it.

Blind-spline tools are designed to cut either internal or external forms. Blind-spline tools are mounted on a rotary dial type or linear machine and the tools are kept in sets. Blind spline tools are single-tooth cutting tools, with each successive tool removing a predetermined amount of material until the desired profile is achieved.

The advantages of using blind-spline broaching over more conventional machining processes are:

  • quick and easy size
  • high degree of accuracy
  • extremely high production
  • extremely high production rates (over 10 times faster than shaping or hobbing)
