Hybrid Forged is Vossen-speak for flow forming their wheels.
The process of creating the best flow formed wheel involves a mix of complex engineering and high-grade technology. A balanced combination of heat and pressure upon the rim barrel alters the mechanical properties of the wheel to get the desired effect: increased strength and weight reduction of up to 15 percent.
The flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design, while also improving the grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and considerably thinner forged-like rim barrel. Flow forming is the response to our market’s demand for lightweight wheels that are more durable and enhance the overall vehicle driving experience.There are four steps to this process, first the heat and coating is applied to the flow-forming drum. The cast wheel is mounted on the drum and ready to be formed.
Second, pressure is applied to the rim barrel. Specially designated hydraulic rollers are used to stretch the wheel by applying pressure to the rim barrel. Next, the wheels’ properties are compressed and stretched to achieve the desired width.
Finally stretching results in an improved grain-structure of the aluminum, which makes for a stronger, thinner, and lighter forged-like rim barrel. The final product is more durable on impact and enhances overall vehicle performance.
