The economical combination of various processes.

Hollow shafts transmit rotary movements and torques between parts that are firmly connected to them. Hollow shafts are used when weight is to be saved or the shaft is to have a high natural frequency.

Reduced use of materials and lightweight construction for resource-efficient results

For this Felss hollow shaft, a 90° shoulder was created using the forming process, whereby a large step jump had to be produced with the highest accuracy. The challenge was mastered through the economical combination of cold forming, turning, hardening and grinding. The processes used ensure increased component strength. Thanks to a cooperative development phase, this hollow shaft combines advanced functional integration with maximum resource efficiency.
