Flow Forming Machine

Leifeld ST 560 H S Series

The LEIFELD ST 560 H S Series is the ideal solution for heavy duty flow forming of rotationally symmetrical hollow bodies with constant or varying wall thicknesses. The extremely sturdy and torsion-resistant machine construction enables a high level of precision with tight tolerances in processing.

The machine is applicable for forming processes like forward flow forming, reverse flow forming and shear forming. A wide range of workpieces can be manufactured from highly stress-resistant materials, such as steel, stainless steel, titanium, high temp alloys, inconel, and more.

Main Characteristics

  • Highest repeatability of parts production over years
  • Near net shape production
  • Highest precision and quality
  • Electricially positionable tailstock with ball screw drive
  • Loading and unloading can be performed by robots
  • Durable machine design and low maintenance costs
