The Process: Axial Forming

Axial forming enables the quick production of highly precise and resilient lightweight design parts. With axial forming, a matrix forms the desired profile on a hollow or solid workpiece. In this way, the manufacture of external and internal toothing systems, dropped centers, involute toothing, and the most varied profiles is possible. The forming is thereby highly precise. 

The Felss Process: Axial Forming

The Felss Process: Axial forming – external toothing

Axial forming even allows internal splines with blind holes without toothing run out, which means that less installation space is required. With a special forming process, Felss can manufacture extremely thin-walled tubes and shafts, for example, shafts with an involute toothing. Our spline elements ensure the necessary transfer of force, for example, with drive or transmission shafts. The steering shafts transfer the rotary movement from the steering wheel to the wheels.
