For more than 60 years, businesses across North America have relied on The Ohio Broach & Machine Company for its broaching capabilities and equipment. Broaching is an application that meets the needs of many industry applications, and Ohio Broach’s skills and expertise are trusted for all of them.
Among the markets that Ohio Broach has served over its long, successful history are the aerospace, oil and gas, automotive, military, medical, and hand-tool sectors.
A highly trusted name
With its high-quality broaching capabilities and superior service, Ohio Broach retains many loyal customers. But its versatility is what makes its client base so diverse. The company has mastered such services as contract production broaching, broach-machine construction and rebuilding, and broach-tool sharpening, reconditioning, and repair. With this wide range of abilities, Ohio Broach can serve a large spectrum of businesses.
The company can offer varied examples of its past successes and broaching capabilities. The Ohio Broach team has created stainless steel surgical implants for the medical field, as well as medical hemostats. Medical implants have been broached on a machine that allowed for various lengths, in a two-pass operation; serrations and one end radius were broached on the first pass, and then the operator rotated the part by 180 degrees and then broached the remaining serrations and radii.
Another unique example: Ohio Broach once constructed a specially designed Ohio H218X horizontal broach machine for a European manufacturer that created thrust bearings for engine crankshafts, supplying them to many automotive businesses. This machine was hydraulically driven and had a dual parallel hydraulic system, so that one side could run independently of the other.
Other special projects that Ohio Broach has undertaken include a ready-to-assemble broached wrench jaw for a manufacturing plant, as well as shaping and sharpening numerous broaching tools. No matter how unique the application, Ohio Broach can create a solution.
These superior design, manufacturing, production, and sharpening capabilities have made Ohio Broach a go-to source not only in many industries, but in many countries. Companies from North American to Europe, China, and the Philippines have benefited.
