WHAT IS FLOWFORM?
Our FlowForm wheels are created using a unique casting and forming
process that obtains strengths and weights similar to a forged
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 it is pulled from the mold and placed
into the flow forming tooling 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.
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.
