Ohio Broach & Machine Company has the capability to design and build standalone or transfer type broaching machines. Its expertise includes the manufacture of horizontal internal broaching machines.
Key features and advantages
Ohio Broach can manufacture horizontal broaching machines with capacities ranging from five to 35 tons, and strokes from 20 to 90 inches. Its lineup includes the “HC” model, which utilizes a close-grained, high-tensile, one-piece cast iron guide head, and the “HF” model, which employs a continuously welded and thermally stressed relieved fabricated steel guide head. Each model is designed and constructed to assure the rigidity and stability required for precise tool tracking. In addition, each model uses hardened and ground alloy steel machine ways to guide the machine pull head, which is equipped with precision ground wear pads that are easily accessible for replacement when necessary. All pull heads can easily be adjusted for vertical tool alignment with the industry standard two-inch, eight-pitch female thread for broach puller attachment. The rapid return of the broach pull head to its starting position is a standard feature on all of the company’s horizontal broach machine models.
These units also feature an Allen-Bradley PLC, which provides consistent and reliable machine regulation for broaching operations. Ohio Broach programs the PLC at its factory to meet the specific needs of each customer’s application; however, it can be fine-tuned at the customer’s facility to adapt to changing production demands.
These horizontal broaching machines also feature a high performance, fixed displacement vane pump, which has the power and energy efficiency required for demanding broaching applications.
In addition to horizontal broaching machines, Ohio Broach can manufacture dual ram and heavy-duty vertical broaching machines, vertical surface broaching machines, table-up broaching machines and CNC shapers. These units are available with a range of strokes, tonnages and cutting speeds to meet just about every broaching need.
