The Benz LinA broach is designed to reduce machine cycle and setup times as well as costs, even for small lot sizes. According to the company, internal and external broaching can be machined by changing the style of insert and reversing the LinA spindle direction. Applications include keyways, torx, notches, spur gears, and ID and OD splines.
