Ohio Broach & Machine Company is known for expertise in many different areas of broaching — from the design and engineering of machines and tooling, to repairs, rebuilds and sharpening services. The company’s experience in these different areas also allows it to provide exceptionally flexible in-house production broaching services. For example, since the company makes its own machines and tooling, it can broach practically any shape.
Flexible production broaching
Ohio Broach & Machine Company can perform all types of broaching, including internal, surface, blind spline and irregular shapes. One key to the company’s versatile production services is that it uses a variety of machine types, including vertical, horizontal surface and CNC shaper machines. These are the same Ohio Broach machines that are used around the world and renowned for quality, so customers can be confident that their parts are broached using the best machine for the job.
Some of the different forms and shapes the company has experience producing on these machines include gear forms, keyways, involute splines, rectangular and octagon. The finished products have been used for such diverse applications as transmission gears, lineman pliers, saw blades and steering components.
Just some of the materials the company often works with include brass, bronze, copper, aluminum, stainless steel, carbon steel, plastics, fibreglass, graphite, hard rubber and wood composites.
Ohio Broach has drawn on its experience to meet the special requirements for unique production broaching projects. For instance, when producing lower receivers for AR-15 rifles, the company determined the best broaching arrangement to ensure the part remains within the tight tolerances required by military standards.
Its production broaching services can be the perfect fit for customers that do not have the demand or capacity to warrant a broaching machine in their facility.
