Central shaft

Felss Central Shaft

Fast and chipless spline forming

Central shafts can be found in the axle drive of commercial vehicles, where all other elements pick up their speed from the transmission. Felss is able to ensure the highest process reliability when it comes to adding the splines during central shaft production The axial forming process that is used offers consistently high spline quality and outstanding surface quality together with short cycle times. The continuous grain structure allows greater stability to be achieved. When manufacturing central shafts, axial forming enables internal splines to be added inside the blind hole – with high precision and without cutting.
