Kingpin Production – Efficient and Low-cost

Kingpins are difficult to machine with a traditional machining process. EMAG turning centers and ball track milling machines are customized to the specific processing task required to produce Kingpins, guaranteeing excellent results.

Precise Manufacturing of CV Joints – focus on: Kingpins

Machining of kingpins is demanding on both the machine and the machining technology. Excellent quality of the ball tracks, tight tolerances in turning operations, and high volumes are required. EMAG meets these demands with optimized manufacturing systems based for the processing of workpieces for CV joints, such as kingpins, inner races and cages. Manufacturing processes are individually tailored to customers' workpieces, which ensures high productivity and availability.

Kingpin machining

The machines of the VSC series are designed for highly productive manufacturing of kingpins. By combining the machining operations of turning and milling, the kingpins are fully machined  in one clamping operation. The twin-spindle design ensures outstanding productivity.

Solutions for kingpin variants:

  • Kingpin processing – Fixed joint
  • Kingpin processing – Sliding joint


  • Internal soft turning of kingpins
  • Soft milling of ball tracks
  • Internal hard turning of kingpins
  • Hard milling of ball tracks

Other technologies from the EMAG Group

  • Induction hardening of kingpins on EMAG eldec induction hardening machines includingf the VLC 100 IH series

Hardening of kingpins – fast, controlled, ideal for line integration

The VLC 100 IH is an induction hardening machine for the hardening of kingpins that also utilizes the EMAG pick-up technique. The kingpins are picked up automatically by the pick-up spindle with center-drive chuck, and conveyed to the machining area for the hardening process, allowing the internal and external hardening of the kingpins to be complete in just one clamping operation

  • The double-wall construction (gantry design) of the machine ensures outstanding stability. The machine base is created with thermally stable polymer concrete
  • Both soft and hard machining can be done with just one machine
  • Hard turning and hard milling in a single machine; full internal machining in one clamping operation = no clamping errors
  • Fully automatic production, easy machine integration into production systems
  • Customized design of the entire production system: both single-spindle and twin-spindle available
