PDXX FORGED LINE
“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution;
It represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
– Design, Engineering, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) & Programming
Each wheel set undergoes a rigorous design and engineering process; doing so ensures a precise final product encompassing all of the dynamic needs of our client vehicles while infusing their personal tastes, from fitment and configurations to finishes. At this stage, each wheel set undergoes a full Finite Element Analysis (FEA) taking into account curb weight, dynamic cornering fatigue, dynamic radial fatigue, and simulated impact testing according to SAE, JWL, and VIA standards. Once completed and verified by our Engineers, the final model is sent to programming for lathe profiling and milling operations.
THE PERFECT FOUNDATION
–Highest Quality 6061-T6 Aerospace Grade Aluminum Forgings
Quality begins at the foundation of every product; a strong foundation is a basis for a quality result. Locally sourced and forged, we utilize PDXX Forged line raw forgings throughout the full line of our forged production.
The aluminum forgings are made with extreme pressure and temperatures to create a high integrity, multi-directional grain structure. The aluminum remains solid throughout the process as the forging dies to press the aluminum into the cylindrical shape of a wheel. The forging is then spun to create the rim section and the resulting radial grain direction places the highest material strength in the same direction as the operating loads. The result is ‘premium strength.’
The aerospace Grade 6061-T6 aluminum forgings guarantee the highest quality and predicable grain structure and are TUV and AS9100-C certified. The result is a superior foundation guaranteed to last, and a trustworthy, high-performing product that meets the highest standards of our team.
THE ART OF THE PROFILE
Each profile offered is a unique combination of lines, curves, and radii drawn up by our Engineers. At this stage, the raw aluminum forging is machined to the rough profile of the wheelset ordered and is carefully sculpted to maximize concavity or rim half depth depending on the application. Profiles are uniquely optimized to create tighter machining tolerances that minimize backspacing and excess aluminum, resulting in a lightweight forged wheel with the highest structural rigidity.
