Flow Form

ACE FLOW FORM SERIES

The ACE Flow Form method uses an improved cast material that is denser, allowing for a lighter and stronger wheel than Low Pressure Cast (LPC) materials used by other flow form wheel companies. ACE applies the latest Cold Vertical Flow Form Technology, administering a steadier spin with consistent metal temperature. Thus producing a consistently higher quality wheel than hot horizontal flow form methods.

  • STEP ONE

    The Flow Form process is started by placing a pre-heated Casted Wheel on a specially designed inner barrel mold.

  • STEP TWO

    Dual rollers press into the wheel as it spins on the mold, flowing the aluminum thinner, and vertically forming the shape of the inner rim.

  • STEP THREE

    The inner rim profile is finalized to meet tire mounting specifications with desired width while becoming stronger and lighter.

COLD VERTICAL FLOW FORM VS
LOW PRESSURE CAST WHEEL

+25% Increased compressive strength

+100% More elongation characteristics

-25% Weight reduction

Made with Cold Vertical Flow Form Technology

* all data depends on the wheel model design and production result.

Wheel core contains less compressed material

Non-compressed barrel has less tensile strength

Prone to leaks or cracks on impact

Requires more material, making it heavier
