Flow Form

INTRODUCING

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

    Rollers press into the wheel as it spins on
    the mold, flowing the aluminum thinner,
    forming the shape of the inner rim; all while
    increasing the tensile strength.

  • STEP THREE

    The inner rim profile is finalized to meet
    tire mounting specifications. The final
    product is stonger, lighter, with increased
    metal yield and compressive strength.

  • STEP TWO

    *Dual rollers press into the wheel as it spins,
    moving upward to form the Lip.

  • STEP THREE

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

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
