ADVANTAGES OF AXIAL FORMING

BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES

  • Close tolerance - very low pitch errors
  • Press-fitting of splines on thin-walled components (tubing) possible
  • Excellent surface quality, low roughness
  • Block teeth or missing teeth possible
  • Short cycle time (up to approx. 5 seconds)
  • Low tooling costs / high durability (approx. 50,000 units)
  • Cold-formed component / use of work hardening
  • Uniform residual stress / low distortion due to hardening
