VEHICLE

Winkelmann Flowform Technology develops and produces drive elements ready for installation, e.g. inner and/or outer gears for many different applications in the vehicle industry. Examples include disc carriers, assemblies and hollow gears that are produced in different forming procedures, such as flow-forming, metal-spinning, “Grob”-forming and deep-drawing. Our procedures permit forming of various low-carbon steels, low-alloyed steels, as well as non-corrosive steels.

Flow-formed disc carriers

Disc carriers ready for installation with hub: Flow-formed components, made of sheet metal or forged parts, are best for highest strain. The cold hardening of the material leads to high component strength. Other benefits of this procedure are a high material utilisation and integrated cylinder surfaces.

Grob-formed disc carriers

Grob-formed inner disc carrier ready for installation: in the Grob procedure (named after Swiss machine producer Ernst Grob AG), cylindrical hollow bodies with inner and outer gears are produced by chipless forming. Additionally, there are applications where both gears can be produced at the same time.

Deep-drawn parts

Deep-drawn parts of various materials and with different wall thicknesses. In practice, this method is best combined with flow-forming, which permits complex component geometries.
