Working with almost every metal
With its in-house production contract broaching services, Ohio Broach consistently contributes to the medical field, which is vital to everyday life. Customers in this industry trust the company to create a broad range of tools with such techniques as internal broaching, broaching of irregular shapes, blind spline broaching, or surface broaching. These engineering experts can work with almost every metal available, including aluminum, brass, copper, alloy steel, stainless steel, and many others.
Its strong collection of in-house machinery enables Ohio Broach to perform an unsurpassed range of broaching services. The lineup of equipment includes horizontal internal broaching machines, dual ram vertical broaching machines, heavy-duty vertical broaching machines, and even CNC shaper machinery. This amazing variety of equipment, unmatched by any other broaching company, allows Ohio Broach to provide quality broaching services for many production sizes, from long to short runs.
A key example of the products that Ohio Broach machines for the medical sector is medical implants. This includes stainless steel surgical implants, which the company’s crew of machinists can broach on a machine that can handle all of the various lengths required. Each of these projects requires no more than two passes. In the first pass, the Ohio Broach team broaches serrations and an end radius; in the second, the part is rotated by 180 degrees to cut the rest of the serrations and the opposite end radii.
In addition to implants, Ohio Broach can create medical hemostats and other essential hand tools for medical professionals. In these jobs, the company’s engineers can straddle-broach the joint areas of medical hemostats to form the perfect tools.
With these skills, Ohio Broach continues to benefit medical organizations.
