Polygon Solutions Improves Process for Medical Implant Broaching

Polygon Solutions, manufacturer of rotary broach cutting tools for the precision machining industry, is expanding their product line to include innovative tools used for machining orthopaedic implants. Its latest advancement is to use a standard rotary broach without the rotary broaching tool holder. The broach is locked into position using a tool holder or collet, and pecked or punched into the part's pilot hole in small increments.

If the chip accumulation begins to interfere with broaching, the broach can be removed, the chips drilled out, and then the broach can be brought back into the hole and broaching can resume. (Source: Polygon Solutions, Inc.)
