Analysis and Comparison of Forged Aluminum Alloy Wheels and Ordinary Trucks

1. Lightweight Forged aluminum ring weight is only equivalent to half the weight of the ring to 22.5X8.5 for example; forged aluminum ring for 25 kg, the ring for at least 48 kg.

2.Save fuel. After the installation of forged aluminum ring, due to the weight reduction of the vehicle, reducing the wheel rotation inertia, so that the vehicle to improve performance, and a corresponding reduction in the demand for braking energy, thereby reducing fuel consumption,Coupled with the forging aluminum ring unique air flow and rolling resistance, so 100 km test savings rate for every 100 km minimum savings of 2 liters of oil(Replacement of aluminum forged and the use of air conditioning after 100 km fuel consumption than forged aluminum ring is not open air conditioning fuel consumption test, the former than the latter low 2.5 liters of fuel consumption).

3. Tire wear reduced by 26%. Due to the characteristics of forging ring, its balance value of 0, not easy to deformation, loose temperature (normal running temperature lower than the ring 20-30 degrees) on the suspension system protection is better, so the tire wear greatly reduced, So that each tire to run more than 5-8 million km.

4. Brake maintenance costs are reduced. As the characteristics of forging aluminum ring temperature is very fast, the normal running temperature is low, so the brake system is not high temperature materials and accessories have excellent protection effect, thus greatly reducing the braking system maintenance costs.

5. Carrying capacity is high, forging ring bearing energy is 5 times the ordinary iron. Forged wheels in the bear after 71200 kg deformation of 5 cm. Iron ring only to withstand 13600 kg has been deformed 5 cm, in other words, the strength of the forging wheel is more than 5 times the steel ring.

6. Improve the comfort of driving. Due to the characteristics of forged wheels, the installation of traffic after the direction of light, high-speed driving particularly smooth, thereby enhancing the driving pleasure.

7. Good security For high-speed cars, due to tire landing friction, braking and other high-temperature puncture, brake performance and other phenomena are common. The aluminum alloy heat transfer coefficient is steel, iron, etc., plus aluminum wheels because of its structural characteristics, easy to tire, car chassis generated by the heat scattered in the air. Even in the long-distance high-speed driving or downhill continuous braking in the case, the car can also maintain the appropriate temperature. Not only can make the tire and brake drum is not easy due to frequent high temperature and aging, can reduce the tire rate.

8. Impact test. Japan JWL test simulation of a truck to over 50 km crashed into the roadside stone, the equivalent of 910 kilograms of weight fell from the height crashed into the tires and wheels. According to the results of the Japanese standard test conducted by the Magnesium Aluminum Forging Technology Center, the forged wheels are only slightly damaged and the damage to the ring is very serious. Cast aluminum alloy wheels are broken into two parts.

9. handsome appearance. Forged aluminum ring design freedom, can be combined with models, so that cars, round one, filling the perfect.

China's truck or bus market needs a lot of lightweight products, energy-saving emission reduction is inseparable from the lightweight, lightweight car parts is the weight of parts, forging aluminum alloy wheel lighweightt the most obvious.

Forging aluminum alloy wheel lightweight will not reduce the safety standards to achieve the goal of lightweight, but scientific and rational use of high-tech means to strengthen the tensile strength and yield strength to ensure the effectiveness of the product.
