Polygon Solution’s Rotary Broach Form Drill is a new tool used to improve manufacturing processes used in rotary broaching. Rotary broaching is a machining technique used to create hexagon and square holes in metals and plastic parts such as custom aerospace fasteners, orthopedic bone screws and hydraulic fittings. The new form drill is used to drill the pilot hole needed before the rotary broach can shape the hole.
Polygon Solution’s innovative from drill can be used to eliminate pilot hole depth and diameter calculations, additional chamfering tools, cutting tool inventory and valuable tooling positions. Form drills can be purchased with matching rotary broaches to simplify tool ordering and inventory. This lean manufacturing tool is a must for high production hexagon and square hole manufacturing.
