Businesses all over North America trust The Ohio Broach & Machine Company not just for first-rate broaching services, but also for industrial broaching machines. The company began producing machines for customer use in the late 1960s, and this line has become a defining part of Ohio Broach’s success.
By designing, building, marketing, and selling its own machines, Ohio Broach enables customers to conduct their own broaching applications privately.
Vertical and horizontal options
Ohio Broach makes multiple types of industrial broaching machines. This includes numerous types of vertical machines, and three examples are:
- Heavy-duty vertical surface broaching machine. This machine has many features, such as high carbon steel ways hardened and ground for long lifespans, precision ram slides made of high-tensile cast iron, lubrication systems with operational interlocks, integral coolant reservoir with high efficiency coolant pump, and an integral hydraulic reservoir and hydraulic system including a high-performance, fixed-displacement vane pump.
- Dual-ram vertical broaching machine. This one is similar, but is two heavy-duty vertical surface ram and guide block assemblies on a common base. It is available in the traditional alternating ram operation or as two independently operating rams.
- RP/224 vertical surface broaching machine. With a compact design that uses up little floor space, the RP/224 is recommended for flats, slots, surface contours, and other secondary operations. No pit or platform required. This machine has solid-state programmable controls, a durable cast iron guide block, a point-pressurized lubrication system, and high-performance pumps, valves, and controls.
Ohio Broach manufactures horizontal internal broaching machines too. These industrial broaching machines come in three models: the HC and HDC, which includes a close-grained, high-tensile, one-piece cast iron guide head, and the HF, with a continuously welded and thermally stressed, relieved, fabricated-steel guide head. All machine pull heads have precision-ground wear pads that are easily replaceable and rapid returns to the start position.
Another two machine types available are the Table-Up internal broaching machine, which allows operators to load parts at floor level without a pit or platform, and the CNC shaper, a relatively new design that enables users to remove material in blind holes or up against shoulders.
