Broaching and keyseating are methods used to create the keyways inside of a gear. By offering both gear manufacturing operations, we are able to select the best method for an individual production run. For example, Hydraulic pull style broaching is best used for short production runs.
Buffalo Gear has many standard keyway broaches in stock. Internal splines, hex, square and various irregular shapes can be produced with broaching. We also offer keyseating for larger keyways.
