German term or phrase: eingeschrumpft
einschrumpfen?

"Der Wendekörper ist aus einem Stück gesenkgeschmiedet mit eingeschrumpfter Wendeachse".

Es handelt sich um die Beschreibung des Drehwekrs eines moderenen Dreh-Pfluges. Ich nehme an, dass der Ausdruch "eingeschrumpft" etwas mit dem Verfahren für Stahlbearbeitung zu tun hat, aber konnte keine Details finden. Kann jemand helfen?

Bestn Dank im Voraus!

shrink-fitted (into something)
Explanation:
Shrink fitting means that two parts are fitted together with zero or even negative clearance, with fitting being done by warming and/or cooling one or both of the parts (relative to the other) in order to cause the dimension of the opening to expand and/or the dimension of the inserted part to contract (shrink). After both parts return to the same temperature, they are firmly connected without using fasteners, welding or adhesives.

sample ref:

What is Shrink fitting ?
... Liquid nitrogen shrink fitting is one of the safest methods of assembly as it is inert ... This picture shows the end of the shaft immersed in the Liquid Nitrogen ...
