Rotary Broach Tool Holder Brake
For use with Polygon Solution's Rotary Broach Tool Holders
Broach Holder Brake Features:
The rotary broach brake is used to align forms when rotary broaching.
Solutions Inc. designed the broaching brake to be used as an attachment
to its innovative GT Series rotary broach holder. The brake mounts to
the tool holder using set screws. Additional screws are included at the
opening of the brake to gently tighten against the spindle. The broach
is fastened into the spindle, and must make contact and be aligned at
the first hole.
the broach is engaged with the part, the brake is loose enough to allow
the spindle to turn without interfering with the broaching operation.
Unlike typical rotary broaching operations, turning must stop before
removing the broach. When the broach is removed, the brake screws are
tight enough to hold the broach’s position until it makes contact with
the part at the next hole.
rotary broaching brake can be used to hold orientation for single or
multiple parts. Tightening the screw to be loose enough to allow
broaching, but tight enough to hold orientation requires patience and a
level of experience. Some trial and error can be expected and the broach
orientation will need to be checked at regular intervals. The hardware
consists of standard screws and nuts that can be replaced or reordered easily.
