HAXER - New, even more powerful wheels now available in our store :)
We are pleased to announce that our extremely wide range of aluminum wheels has recently been enriched with flow forming rims that are characterized by even greater strength and reduced weight. We will try to introduce the method of production of such rims and also answer why it is worth investing in such rims.
For some time we have received many questions about the availability of forged rims, which provide excellent impact resistance and above-standard weight of vehicles. In response to requests, we decided to expand the range with flow forming rims, which provide excellent resistance to deformation but also have a reduced weight compared to rims made in standard technology. Flow forming is the perfect compromise between durability and price.
This technology is one of the most modern aluminum components used in the production and is based on the application of pressure to which the formed rim is subjected, which is also heated to a high temperature.
In the first step, the pre-formed aluminum disc is placed on a machine that provides it with a rotational movement, during which the inner part of the rim is pressurized by a roller. This process continues for some time, which ensures stretching and thickening of aluminum particles. Below is a video showing the production of flow forming rims.
Strength tests indicate that the rim made in flow forming technology is about 20% more resistant to impact than the standard one. The same disproportion can be seen in the number of strokes that the rim can take before damage. In other words, we will be able to cover a greater number of kilometers before damaging our wheel :)
It is not difficult to notice that the entire production process of flow forming is very associated with the production of forged rims, which is why perfect strength was obtained, but also the weight was reduced, which is one of the basic advantages of aluminum rims. It should be emphasized that the use of such rims will make our car, in addition to better handling, receive a bonus in the form of slower wearing parts of the suspension and brakes. We invite you to familiarize yourself with our offer of FF rims, which we especially recommend to people who like riding on low-profile tires and those who value driving on roads of poor quality that are not lacking in our country :)
