The Ohio Broach & Machine Company is an ideal source for broaching machinery, with its comprehensive offering of equipment and services. Its new table-up broaching machine eliminates the need for pits and elevated work platforms. This design offers a number of advantages.
To operate without pits and platforms, the table-up machine can move workpieces vertically to engage the broaching tools. As a result, parts can be loaded at floor level as opposed to a platform. This makes the operator’s job easier, which in turn leads to greater productivity and fewer problems.
Many secondary operations can also be performed on the machine because the design provides the operator with easier access to inspect, drill, tap and mark the workpiece.
Ease of relocation
The “pitless” design of the table-up broaching machine also makes it easier to relocate for inclusion in manufacturing cells, and increases cell design flexibility with ergonomic workstations.
These machines are available in capacities ranging from five to 30 tons, and strokes from 36 to 72 inches. A variety of optional equipment is available, including magnetic and mechanical chip conveyors, shuttle tables, coolant lubrication, multiple fixturing, auto load and unload, and broach removal devices.
An experienced manufacturer
The Ohio Broach & Machine Company offers a full lineup of broaching machines and broaches. In addition to its table-up product line, the company offers a range of horizontal vertical machines, including dual ram and heavy duty types. A variety of services are also available, including contract production broaching, emergency broach repair, regular service and full machine rebuilds.
