Precise and economical manufacturing solutions

The Felss axial forming machines produce high-precision external and internal gears on solid as well as hollow and extremely thin-walled parts – with short process times and to the highest quality. Discover some examples of axial forming machines from our range here.


Cost-efficient production of external gears and contours

Thanks to the patented system, the AFH machines offer a reduction in axial forces, allowing extremely thin-walled tubes to be serrated. The AFH machines therefore offer long tool life and short cycle times for economical production. The machine can be optionally equipped with additional stations, such as a de-oiling unit or multiple testing devices, or even integrated into a transfer system. The machines in the product family are available with and without a mandrel device, enabling the precise production of thin-walled components. The components can be fed either via the feed unit or directly via a robot.

Advantages of AFH machines

  • High precision and tight tolerances
  • Forming one or more high-precision gears in a single machining step
  • Short cycle times
  • Chipless manufactured blind hole toothing
  • Resource-saving thanks to chipless production
  • Highest repeat accuracy over the entire running time
  • High dimensional accuracy thanks to one-piece tool
  • Axial and radial clamping of components possible

Possible geometries

External and internal gears such as splines and involute splines as well as ball track and many other profiles.
