World premiere at the TUBE 2010:
With the “Generation e“ FELSS sets new benchmarks in rotary swaging
Efficient, easy to operate and flexibly expandable: The swaging machine “Generation e” of the machine manufacturer FELSS sets new benchmarks in the field of cold forming. “With the ‘Generation e’ the numerous advantages of the resource-conserving manufacturing process can be used even more efficiently in future,” Managing Director Winfried Richter says. If transmission or drive shafts, airbag cylinders or piston rods for shock absorbers and many other applications more - with the ‘Generation e’ various shapes, highest precision and low material consumption are made easy.
Renaissance of a traditional manufacturing process
Scarcity of resources, environmental constraints and cost pressure - these current challenges above all apply to sectors like the automotive industry. And they make a traditional manufacturing process highly relevant. By means of rotary swaging the weight of components can be reduced. Thus, a vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emission are reduced. At the same time the manufacturers save money because rotary swaging (contrary to e.g. turning) does not produce any waste.
As global market leader and technology leader the swaging specialist FELSS again and again sets new milestones in terms of lightweight construction and resource efficiency. Various shapes and most exacting tolerances are a matter of course. With the „Generation e“ the machine manufacturer extends the possibilities of the process. Easy to operate with maximum process control the machine can be reconfigured and changed over with lowest efforts. Without any problems the “Generation e“ produces different batch sizes and reduces the production costs, not least due to low energy consumption.
Apart from the “Generation e“ the FELSS Group of course is also representing numerous further technologies and services at the TUBE 2010. On request, the subsidiary rotaform as a component manufacturer is able to undertake the complete production of components. On the other hand, the subsidiary FELSS Burger is specialized in highly productive manufacturing systems for the series production of pipes, tubes and sheet metal workpieces.
The FELSS Group not only considers itself as competent innovative machine manufacturer. The company supports its customers from the tool design over tests and prototyping to tailor-made production solutions - and thereby literally lightens your work.
