WHAT IS FLOWFORM?
Our FlowForm wheels are created using a unique casting and forming process that obtains strengths and weights similar to a forged wheel.
The process begins by pouring molten aluminum into a mold face-side-down followed by rapid cooling. By doing this, the aluminum alloy is condensed and in turn enhances the elastic strength and durability.
After the wheel is formed [a] it is pulled from the mold and placed into the flow forming tooling [b] which is similar to the concept of a potters’ wheel. This process stretches the barrel to a defined profile and thickness, ultimately giving the wheel its final shape [c]. This “stretching” improves the grain structure of the aluminum making it stronger, lighter and more precise than a non-flow formed barrel resulting in forged aluminum-like strength.
