The Ohio Broach and Machine Company has a wide spectrum of broaching equipment and capabilities. The company’s unique versatility enables its team to provide first-rate broaching solutions for clients in a wide variety of industries. One of these sectors is the medical industry – for which Ohio Broach can perform a broaching operation on medical implants, hemostats, and more.
With more than 60 years of experience under its belt, Ohio Broach has what it takes to meet the needs of this important group.
In-house production contract broaching services
The medical sector is vital to everyday life, and what enables Ohio Broach to contribute to it so consistently is its in-house production contract broaching services. Medical clients trust the company to produce a range of tools with internal broaching, broaching of irregular shapes, blind spline broaching, and surface broaching. The Ohio Broach team has the ability to work with almost every metal, such as aluminum, brass, copper, alloy steel, stainless steel, and more.
To perform its wide range of services, Ohio Broach has access to a good collection of in-house machinery. This equipment includes horizontal internal broaching machines, dual ram vertical broaching machines, heavy-duty vertical surface broaching machines, and even CNC shaper machines. With such a variety of equipment, the company can offer quality broaching for production sizes ranging from short to long runs.
How does the medical industry benefit from this? By the products that Ohio Broach can machine. One key example is medical implants, including stainless steel surgical implants, which the company’s machinists can broach on a machine that can handle the different lengths required. The project uses only two passes: the Ohio Broach team can broach serrations and an end radius in the first, and then the part is rotated by 180 degrees to cut the rest of the serrations and the opposite end radii.
Ohio Broach can also broach hand tools for medical professionals, especially medical hemostats. The joint areas of hemostats can be straddle-broached to create the ideal tools.
From medical implants to tools, Ohio Broach provides great solutions for medical users.
