The axial feed cross roll complements the range of rolling machines. In contrast to cross wedge rolling and roll forging the tool geometry of the AVQ is not product-dependent.
The method is particularly suitable for the production of rotationally- symmetrical pre- and finish-forms, especially if flexibility is required.
The reduction of the unformed blanks in sections is effected by two radially advanced rotating disks (tools). At the same time the work-piece is axially pulled through the roller gap by tongs that grip the blank end.
The program-controlled movements of radial feed (tool) and axial feed (blank) produce the desired steps of the blank.
• Independent of work-piece
• Low tool costs
• Optimally suited for small batch sizes
