Production Broaching For The Heavy Equipment Industry
The construction of sports stadiums, the extraction of raw materials from a mine, and the grading of metric tons of earth all require the use of heavy equipment vehicles.
These types of vehicles need to be able to run for thousands of hours without breaking down and maintenance in the field needs to be fast and effective in order to minimize machine downtime.
Parts crated for high production, high performance, and high stress environments like those found in the heavy equipment industry come directly from expertly designed broaching machines.
BMS creates contract broaching agreements for production broaching services with companies in the heavy equipment industry to help deliver the most reliable parts critical to machine operation. Let’s explore further the impact that production broaching has on the heavy equipment industry.
Heavy Equipment Machinery Parts Made During Production Broaching
Hidden behind tons of steel are some of the most mission-critical parts of heavy equipment vehicles, front end loaders, trucks, and more. Examples of the parts and components made during the production broaching process for this type of equipment are:
- Control valves
- Swing drives
- Transmission parts
- Parts for differentials
- Slewing Rings
- Final Drive components
- Cooling components
Why Companies Outsource Production Broaching
Companies outsource their production broaching to BMS because of the following key reasons:
- Cost containment
- Design expertise
- Overall Part Quality
Designing, building, operating, and maintaining a broaching machine is expensive. Companies whose core functions are outside of this domain have more effective control over their costs when these types of services are outsourced in the form of production or contract broaching.
Broaching machines can be designed for almost any production application. However, in order to achieve the end result of high quality part runs, the machine itself must be designed for such a task. BMS possess the personnel on-staff who are the most knowledge in the industry when it comes to designing broaching machines for a particular application.
Part quality matters, especially when the inner workings of heavy machinery are so reliant on each other. Proper machine design, construction, operation, and maintenance all play an equal role in delivering the end product of a production broaching campaign.
