Facing the challenge of making the aluminum wheel ever lighter, for years the RONAL GROUP has successfully made use of flowforming, a technology that is popular in the OEM sector.
Flowforming is a process in which the rim well of the cast blank is rolled out over a die. The result is greater strength with a thinner wall and higher load capacities. This production technique makes it possible to reduce volume in the rim well, sometimes by as much as 50%. This substantial weight saving cuts consumption levels and thus benefits the environment at the same time.
The company is also able to offer the wide variety of designs that is popular with customers, while maintaining its high safety standard. Flowforming can additionally be combined with other technologies such as Undercut and Reverse.
