Industrial broaching machines are used to create various types of parts from metal. The machines have a number of different attachments, including shears and punches, that allow them to do their job quickly and efficiently. They are an important part of manufacturing processes, and can be found in a variety of industries.
Broaching machines are used to create a hole in a material by cutting through it with a rotating cutting head. The machine uses a broach to create the hole, which is then bored with a drill bit. The cutting head is also equipped with a cut-off wheel that helps to remove material around the broach. Broaching machines can cause injuries in three main ways: when the cutting head encounters resistance, when the machine becomes unstable, or when the cut-off wheel contacts someone. Resistance can occur when the material is too hard or too soft, and can result in a broken broach or welding defect in the metal. Unstable machines can cause injury when they suddenly start moving in unexpected directions, and can also generate sparks that might ignite material nearby. And finally, contact with the cut-off wheel can cause cuts, lacerations, and even amputations.
