Forging also results in lightweight wheels offering maximum strength in all wheel areas, as well as larger wheel diameters, while weighing less than OEM cast wheels. They are characterized by a premium-quality surface finish, design details and scope for adaptation that aluminum cast wheels can only provide to a limited extent.
The ultralight monoblock wheel is cut from a forged blank to completely rule out any porosity and welds. The world’s leading aircraft manufacturers use one-piece forgings to ensure outstanding performance in critical constructions. And it is not only greater strength with a higher load capacity and reduced weight that speaks for this production method. Another benefit of forged lightweight wheels from RONAL GROUP is lower fuel consumption due to a smaller rotating mass.
