AFH axial forming machine

Felss AFH

Precise and economical manufacturing solutions

Felss axial forming machines produce high-precision external and internal splines on solid, hollow, and extremely thin-walled parts – with short process times and in the highest quality. Discover several examples of axial forming machines from our assortment here.

Felss AFH

Cost-efficient production of external splines and contours

Thanks to a patented system, the AFH machines offer a reduction of axial forces, allowing extremely thin-walled tubes to be splined. The AFH machines thus offer excellent tool durability with short cycle times for economical production. The machine can be optionally equipped with further stations, such as a de-oiling unit or multiple testing devices, or even be integrated into a transfer system. The systems in the product family are available with and without a mandrel apparatus to enable the precise production of thin-walled components. Component load can be either via the infeed unit or directly via a robot.
