With a range of broaching capabilities unmatched by any other company – from building machines to tool sharpening – The Ohio Broach and Machine Company is a top North American source of broaching services. Another key advantage of working with Ohio Broach is its inventory of broaching machine accessories, which can broaden the machines’ abilities to suit unique user needs. The lineup of optional equipment includes machine tables, platforms, clamping systems for holding work, and conveyors for chip removal.
Making broaching efficient and profitable
First, Ohio Broach offers a variety of options for machine tables. All of these broaching machine accessories have cross keyways that help with fixture changeover. A typical machine table is a platen type with a large, obstruction-free perimeter, but Ohio Broach’s inventory also includes tip-back tables. With machine tables, users can tilt the work-holding fixture to get easier access when loading or unloading work pieces and then tilt the table forward automatically to ensure that the position is correct for broaching.
Another option available, the infeed shuttle table, allows users to make multiple, repetitive broach cuts that allow the machine to keep making passes until it reaches the depth required. Ohio Broach’s infeed shuttle tables can come with tip-back capability as well.
Ohio Broach also supplies upgrading options for applications that involve manual-type work-holding fixture clamping. The company’s air-oil booster-type power sources include electrical pressure switches and necessary tie-ins for electrical systems in machines. Another accessory available is a double-hydraulic power source for large-volume hydraulic cylinders and multi-cylinder applications. This device can also power automatic fixture movements.
In addition, Ohio Broach offers chip-removal conveyors for pit and floor-surface broach machines. These include drag-link conveyors for handling non-ferrous chips and magnetic ones for ferrous chips. The conveyors come with baffles and electrical tie-ins, and operator platforms – complete with durable construction, with heavy-duty grating and structural tubing – are also available.
With these broaching machine accessories, businesses can meet their needs in a way that makes the broaching process as efficient and profitable as possible. This is Ohio Broach’s goal for every customer, every time.
