*Can be off-set by
over-wrapping operation

Less tool pressure -especially on small diameter parts

One size can cover several socket sizes

Broach Tool Need to have tools for each socket size
  • Rotary-broach is an efficient way for Hexagon socket. But tool pressure is high and often times it pushes part too hard.
  • SHAPER DUO can make Hexalobular(6-lobe) socket faster and simpler.
