Automotive wheel giant Wheels India Ltd said on Monday it has started exporting wheels made using flow forming technology to the US market.
The company said the flow forming technique involves applying pressure to the inner barrel of the wheel while it is spinning and after it has been cast. This process stretches and compresses the aluminum, increasing the tensile strength.
Wheels India has launched cast alloy wheels using the technology, the company said.
“Flow Form Technology will be a first for the Indian market and will be lighter, stronger, more elongated and more shock-resistant than conventional cast wheels. This may increase mileage, safety and longevity,” said Srivats Ram, Management said the staff director.
The company manufactures wheels for trucks, farm tractors, passenger cars and construction equipment; air suspension systems for trucks and buses, and industrial components for the construction and windmill industries in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh Manufactures are located in Uttarakhand and Uttarakhand.
