Our newest Advanced Rim Technology (A.R.T.) is the latest manufacturing process that incorporates traditional monoblock wheel casting methods with spin forming technology to drastically improve the material properties and enhances the overall strength of our wheels.
The A.R.T. process impacts the micro-structure of aluminum by utilizing three hydraulic rollers to apply pressure to form the inner rim area after the wheel has been casted. The rollers move down the barrel, applying pressures to stretch, compress, and form the entire wheel barrel, ultimately increasing the tensile strength and elongation properties.
The end product is a lighter, stronger wheel that has an increased load capacity and shock resistance over the traditional cast aluminum wheel. A.R.T. provides up to a 25% weight reduction compared to a traditional cast wheel.
