Precision and Diversity of Variants

The Felss axial forming machines produce highly precise external and internal toothing 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.*

Axial Forming Machine Aximus V02

About the Machine

The Aximus V02 is used to form one or more highly precise spline systems on hollow or solid parts with a total length of up to 400 millimeters. The vertical Aximus offers a sixfold tool changer and a patented system, which reduces the axial forces and makes it possible to tooth extremely thin-walled tubes. Thanks to the interlinkage of the Aximus with other stations, additional process steps, such as threading and deoiling are possible.

Axial Forming Machine Aximus H02

About the Machine

The Aximus H02 is used to form one or more highly precise internal and external spline systems on hollow or solid parts. Thanks to a patented system, the axial forces are reduced, which means that extremely thin-walled tubes can be toothed. The AXIMUS H02 model is mainly used for components longer than 270 millimeters. The machine can be equipped with a six-fold tool changer in order to, for example, carry out all splines for gear shafts in only one run.

Axial Forming Machines AFH

About the Machines

The axial forming machines of the AFH product family are suited for the cost-efficient manufacture of external spline systems and contours of the highest quality. Thanks to a patented system, the AFH machines offer a reduction of axial forces, which means that extremely thin-walled tubes can be toothed. The AFH machines thus offer high tool service life and short cycle times for economical production. The machine can either be equipped with further stations, such as a deoiling unit or multiple testing devices, or even be integrated into a transfer system. The systems of the product family are available with and without a mandrel apparatus and therefore enable the precise production of thin-walled components. The component feed can take place either via the feed unit or directly via a robot.
