Pot Broaching Services & Process

Pot broaching refers to the process of cutting the entire outside diameter of a piece part, using multiple broaches which are held in a broach holder or ‘pot’.

The pot is a housing with a hole in the center that is designed to hold many broaching tools, usually concentrically, throughout its entire inside diameter. The pot is then pushed over the piece part to be cut, or conversely, the piece part is pushed through the pot broaching tool. An example of a pot broaching operation would be the cutting of external splines on a gear.
