Do you know the wheel manufacturing process?In the current market, there are four main types of wheel manufacturing processes: casting, forging, spinning forging and top carbon fiber wheels. In view of the high price of the latter, it has not yet been widely used.Casting is currently the process used by most of the original wheel hubs. It heats and melts the iron/aluminum alloy raw materials into a liquid, then pours it into a mold, and cools and solidifies to become a rim. The casting wheel hub is simple in process and cheap, but the disadvantage is that it needs larger and thicker "spokes" to ensure strength, so the weight is large, which will affect the control performance of the vehicle to a certain extent.Forged wheels are made by pressing aluminum blocks with a forging press (thousand tons or 10,000 tons). In the process of press forging, the bonding between metal molecules becomes tighter, so the mechanical properties are better than those of cast wheels, and they can be more lightweight.Spinning forging is a popular wheel manufacturing process in the past ten years. It transforms a cylindrical aluminum block into a round aluminum cake by forging and pressing; then, it is subjected to a spinning process, and the shape of the rim is obtained by spinning and stretching.Compared with casting, spinning forging has the advantages of higher strength, better toughness and lighter weight. Compared with forging, the price of spinning forging is more close to the people, so the consumer acceptance is higher.Luxury brands also use spinning forgingIn order to cope with a wider consumer group, many international brands have adopted spinning forging production technology, luxury refit brand is one of them.As one of the top ten famous luxury car modification brands in the world, wald is the leader of VIP modification in Japan. They have nearly 30 years of technology accumulation and are developed for luxury high-end models in Europe, America and Japan. The products have passed TUV, JWL, VIA and other certification standards, covering appearance kits, wheels, brakes, etc. It is worth mentioning that was also invited by Toyota to join MODELLISTA (Toyota Appearance Modification Department) and become the queen modification brand of Toyota and Lexus."Original Luxury" Wheels for Japanese Luxury CarsLooking a rich wheel products, they are more designed for "luxury" positioning, and their shapes are quite distinctive. In the last period of time, launched a new wheel model-F001. This wheel is currently mainly aimed at Japanese luxury cars, such as Toyota Century, Alpha/Wilfa, Crown, Prius and Granace, Lexus LS, Lexus RX and other models, and Mercedes-Benz V-Class and other models can also be adapted .For branded wheels, they don't have to worry about the manufacturing process and strength. The core difference lies in the product design. The F001 series was personally designed by the president of brand in Japan. You must know that the president of this brand also served as the pre-designer of Toyota Lexus. He has a unique view on Japanese luxury cars.Many riders think that the wheel design is similar to the clothes, just a simple appearance. In fact, as a component that carries the weight of the vehicle, the original design of the wheel is more important than the mechanical design. In the mechanics of the wheel hub, there are three product properties that are most critical: the rigidity of the ability to resist deformation, the strength of the ability to resist destruction, and the stability of the material balance ability. These directly affect the strength, toughness and long-term metal fatigue characteristics of the wheel.F001 design forged wheels adopt the "simple and gorgeous" design concept. Although the shape is more inclined to the original factory, it makes people feel a different luxury.It adopts a thick and thin close-width model, and the spokes are strong and strong. At the same time, the SBC tungsten bright vacuum plating process is added to the surface of the wheel hub, which is quite a test of the later manufacturing process.
