The Rays Cast Flow Forming Technology RCF
They have effectively improved the RAYS 57 Transcends performance, as well as the other cast wheel commodities by making use of the spinning method utilized for forged wheels, specifically for cast rim embellishments and molding. This is called the RCF Method which is utilized for the 57Transcend, created and designed to boost the strength of cast wheels; this is done by developing tissues that are similar to fiber flow lines in the cast wheels structure a method in the production of cast wheels where RAYS greatly excels.
Six Steps of the RCF Method
- The process of Aluminum Fusion dissolves a certain mixture of varying metals into a molten state.
- Molten Metal Treatment a procedure where the impurities found in the molten aluminum mixture are removed thoroughly before reaching the next step.
- Casting Method – after the removal of impurities, the mixture is poured into a mold to form and shape the wheel.
- After the casting step, the barrel is flow formed by using the companys RCF technology to develop a barrel that has similar characteristics to its forged barrels.
- Once these have been formed and cooled, the wheels run through chemical or heat treatment, depending on their specifications; in some cases, machining also takes place to further decrease the wheels weight.
- Lastly, the wheels are finished off with specific types of shades which serve as the main shield and protection against corrosion.
The Delta-Shaped Spoke
RAYS 57Transcend makes use of a brand new spoke profile that features a delta shape, allowing a thinner top spoke while simultaneously keeping the strength, durability, as well as lightness throughout the whole wheel.
