Flow Forming Center

Leifeld RFC 400/4 C+H

The vertical LEIFELD Rotor Shaft Forming Center LEIFELD RFC 400/4 C+H is specially designed for the chipless forming of rotor shafts with different forming operations in a single setup.
This machine is equipped with 2 radial axes and 2 axial axes with the optional tool shifting device on both sides, which enables the flow forming, necking-in, and flange forming process. The preforms are clamped either by the clamping chuck which is installed on the main spindle or by the tailstock with a connected upper tool by axial clamping.

Various preforms, such as thickwalled and thinwalled tubes, forged preforms and blanks can be processed.

Main Characteristics

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