From the US rim manufacturer HRE Performance Wheels There is news about the production process for making rims. The whole thing is called HRE3D + and is a manufacturing process that is similar to the 3D printing process. It could revolutionize the manufacture of rims! With HRE3D +, the wheels are made from different layers of titanium powder, almost like in the 3D printing process. HRE has this procedure in cooperation with GE additives developed and already the first prototypes of the new 3D rims at the start. You can be up to date on the form next-2018 Fair be amazed in Frankfurt and allegedly is the series production already decided thing. Tip: New rims for the car? It is important to pay attention to this before buying!
EBM (Electron Beam Melting) process
Using the EBM (Electron Beam Melting) process, HRE3D + takes an electron beam that fuses the titanium powder together. The ready-to-drive rim consists of a multitude of layers of molten titanium. In our opinion, HRE has reached a completely new level with the HRE3D + in terms of titanium rims. Such a complex design, as the prototype shown here shows, is unthinkable with the conventional manufacture of titanium rims. For the tech freaks among you (us included) HRE has posted a video on the process and development of the rim that you need to watch (further down). Totally crazy what additive manufacturing (3D printing) allows for patterns and shapes.
maybe soon one piece
Currently, the rims are still made of several parts and finally screwed together. But most likely it's just a matter of time before a titanium wheel out of one piece created in this way. But even if you absolutely want to go into series production, you must not forget at the moment that the HRE3D + wheel is currently just a design and manufacturing concept. So you can be curious.
