Steering shaft with cloverleaf

Felss Camshaft

Ready-to-install steering shaft made from a single tube

The steering shaft connects the steering wheel to the steering gear and provides the driver with feedback from the road. Shocks and vibrations should not be conveyed in the process.

Potentials of cold forming for drive shafts

Felss steering shafts are made using the rotary swaging process to create one-piece solutions that meet the toughest of requirements with regard to the internal profile. Felss steering shafts are manufactured from a single tube using the net-shape process. The outer and inner contours are produced in just a few production steps and in a single operation without the need for any further reworking. This reduces production costs while improving the straightness and ensuring the highest geometric accuracy of the component. As a result, Felss can offer economical series production right through to the ready-to-fit component.

Special features of the implemented solution

Forming into a net shape in just a few processing steps
Production of the outer and inner contours in one operation
High geometric accuracy
Net-shape forming without further reworking
