Vertical Pull-Down Broaching Machine

Vertical Pull-Down Broaching Machine

Federal Broach’s turnkey Vertical Pull-Down broaching machines are offered in hydraulic configurations with pull-down tables. These highly flexible machines can produce various internal profiles such as parallel sided, involute splines, cam forms and various other internal profiles. Our selection of vertical pull-down machines are available in tonnage capacities ranging from 5 to 75 tons, with strokes up to and including 120 inches.

Facility Requirements

Smaller vertical pull-down broaching machines can typically be installed on a standard concrete industrial floor. However, larger machines, such as 25 ton 100 inch stroke models, will require a 12-inch, steel-reinforced foundation. Vertical pull-down machines require approximately 300 square feet of floor space and up to 25 feet of ceiling height if equipped with an optional tool change crane. Exact specifications will be supplied due to the large variation of machines offered in this style.
