HYBRID FORGED SERIES VFS-1
Please contact us if you are interested in this product.
Advancing the traditional casting process, the Hybrid Forged Series utilizes flow forming to cut down on weight and increase strength. Flow forming also allows for a great range of wheel widths within each design.
The flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design, while also improving the grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and considerably thinner forged-like rim barrel. Flow forming is the response to our market’s demand for lightweight wheels that are more durable and enhance the overall vehicle driving experience.
A cast wheel is mounted to the flow forming drum and heat is applied.
Hydraulic rollers stretch the wheel by applying pressure to to the barrel.
The wheel’s material is stretched and compressed to achieve the desired width.
Stretching the barrel material improves the grain structure of the aluminum, making a stronger and lighter barrel, similar to a forged wheel.
