AX Series

The Thompson AX Series is designed for friction welding commercial vehicle drive and trailer axles for both OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers. The machines feature a new chuck design with simplified jaw fixings for holding larger diameter spindles and a new hydraulic system with improved pressure control for even better finished accuracies. The series offers hidden tie bars and Thompson flexiBase technology while moveable clamps ensure wide variation in overall lengths. An optional compact base design is available for smaller axles.
