This Felss sun shaft offers considerable material and weight savings with simultaneously high precision.
The steering shaft is the connection between the steering gear and the steering column. It ensures that the relative movements that occur between the driver’s cab and the chassis have no influence on steering behavior while driving.
This Felss steering shafts are, in contrast to manufacturing using other processes, produced from one part. This complete processing is possible with the combined rotary swaging and axial forming processes. Due to the single-part version, the straightness of the piece is improved and production costs are reduced by dispensing with welding. The cost savings resulting from lightweight design steering are so massive that even intervention in a running series is worth it.
Reduced cycle time.
Complex geometries with the highest precision.
