Orbital Cold Forging from Feintool Technologies AG.

The need for less force combined with excellent forming performance are the primary factors that make orbital forming technology a success. In just a single die-forging stage, you can produce workpieces of great dimension a land geometrical accuracy and with an outstanding surface finish.

Orbital Forming parts

  • Only part of die surface acts on workpiece material
  • The material is ‘rolled’ into the lower die by the orbiting motion of the upper die
  • Contact stresses and the force required are low, enabling substantial deformation of the workpiece to be affected
  • Final geometry is achieved in just one forming operation
