Flow Forming Center

Leifeld FFC 400/3

The vertical Flow-Forming Center LEIFELD FFC 400/3 is a flexible machine center for chipless forming of hollow parts with several forming operations in one clamping. Unlike the other machines that have been offered on the market, the FFC 400/3 is equipped with a closed support frame with 3 radial axes and 1 axial axis yet from three sides optimally accessible.

The design of the center optionally allows the combination of forming operations as splitting and profiling with spinning and flow forming via cylindrical, tapered, rounded and geared mandrels in one setting.


Main Characteristics

  • Low space requirements and good accessibility thanks to compact and ergonomic design
