Cold Forming Machinery

Because you need flexibility in the reproduction and interchangeability of parts, you’ve selected cold forming machinery as your metal forming equipment. Because you desire flexibility in your process, select Grob.

Ernst Grob AG has been in business for nearly 50 years, and today, Grob specializes in two different processes: the cold forming of splines in bar stock and in sheet metal. Grob cold forming machinery is used worldwide by nearly every major automotive company, including Toyota, Ford, Mercedes, BMW, and GM, and the company owes its success to the Grob process for automatic transmissions.

The major advantages of the Grob process include, but are not limited to:

  • Accuracy
  • Repeatability
  • Flexibility

In a constantly changing economic environment, accuracy is a must-have as no company wants to waste time or resources, repeatability is another time factor, and flexibility plays a major role as volumes fluctuate. For many companies, volumes are down, and that is where the Grob process shines. Within the range of 500-1000 orders a day, the Grob process excels as it can be changed over quickly to make different processes, does not involve a lot of down time, and tooling is comparatively low in cost.

Spline Rolling Machine

Initially, Grob developed machines to form splines on solid shafts, but soon expanded to make a spline rolling machine for sheet metal components to serve the automotive industry. As of late, Grob has produced a new range of flexible CNC machines to trim, slot, and hole-punch splined clutches, and the company is constantly engaged in research and development to improve the Grob processes and to develop new parts.
