This paper presents results of numerical analysis of rolling process of internal toothing. Numerical simulations of the rolling process were made basing on finite element method (FEM), using commercial software DEFORM-3D in version 10.0. Geometrical models applied in FEM calculations were discussed in details. Calculations were made in three dimensional state of strain with consideration of thermal phenomena. During research works, geometrical parameters of obtained parts were analyzed,

Next, the influence of particular process parameters on tools durability and the possibility of presence of phenomena disturbing the process stability were discussed. Described results of numerical research confirm the possibility of forming of internal toothing by means of rolling methods and constitute the introduction for a more complex analysis of metal forming processes of internal toothing.
