Ohio Broach & Machine Company has the capability to manufacture dual ram vertical broaching machines. Available in five- to 15-ton capacities, and 48- to 72-inch strokes, these rugged units have been designed with many best-in-class standard features, so they can perform well in many broaching applications.
Rugged: The machine ways for the models in this series are composed of high carbon steel, hardened and tempered, then ground to closely controlled tolerances. This ensures these durable units have a long service life.
Precise: The machine’s precision ram slide is manufactured from close-grain, high-tensile, cast-iron material. Slide surfaces are hand-scraped for a precise fit, and then flaked for maximum lubrication penetration.
High-performing: The unit’s fixed-displacement, vane pump is known for its high-performance, and is used with other high-performing valves and controls. This forms the basis of the standard machine drive system, which has a reliable, industrial “open-loop” design. The pumps and valves are mounted on an attached reservoir on the five-ton models, and on a standalone hydraulic reservoir for models larger than five tons.
Compact: The ram slide and table sub-assemblies are mounted on a rigid base weldment. The lower portion of this weldment serves as a coolant reservoir for the machine, which allows the unit to have a compact design that takes up a minimum of precious plant floor space.
All heavy-duty models in this series feature a pressurized, individual point lubrication system. Standard system features include low reservoir level indication, anti-start interlocking, and high-pressure indication for detecting an impaired normal flow condition.
The dual ram vertical broaching machine is just one of the many types of machines that Ohio Broach & Machine Company has the capability to manufacture. The company also produces horizontal internal broaching machines, heavy-duty vertical broaching machines, vertical surface broaching machines, table-up broaching machines and CNC shaper machines. In addition, it has the capability to rebuild and repair existing machines. This wide selection ensures the company is able to meet all of its customers’ broaching needs.
