RAYS Engineering has created the Rays TE37 in the year 1996 where the concept of producing a wheel for both street and motorsports has spawned; the wheels name, Touring Evolution, has been made to emphasize the connection between the world of racing and RAYS continuous development and advancement for the TE37, collecting all feedback and details the wheels have received from teams and professionals that have used the wheel. All these data being utilized to further improve the wheel to cater to the needs and requisites of its users.
The Six-Spoke Design
RAYS focused on two primary aspects when it came to creating the Rays TE37 and these were the wheels being extremely lightweight while displaying maximum rigidity and rigor; the TE37s six-spoke design gives the wheels the greatest stress diffusion over its inner and outer circumference while simultaneously taking the abuse and toughness of competitive racing or other similar motorsports today. Additionally, if you were ever wondering where the 7 on the wheels name came from, it was the companys target weight of the wheels entry level size 3.7 kilograms for the 15 x 6 JJ.
The Rays TE37 wheels are fully made out of aluminum which is unlike other so-called aluminum wheels that contain about twenty-percent of other elements. Surprisingly, the aluminum present in the Rays TE37 is not just simple aluminum because RAYS has created its own A6061-T6 mix that perfectly complements the process of forging and results in the stress strain, fatigue strength, tensile strength, and the specific elasticity that the company has been searching for.
Finite Element Analysis FEA
Before the company starts to produce wheels, RAYS utilizes a complicated FEA software to find out whether a specific design does not just come off as appealing to the eyes, but if it is also structurally sound and durable for rigorous use. When on the road, the outer rim of the wheel goes through large amounts of stress especially during cornering while the inner part is crucial to the wheels ability to keep the necessary tire grip on the road.
Rays TE37 is made from some of the finest aluminum with an aircraft grade 6061 and is created through a process called hot forging where a piece of solid aluminum is heated then shaped by applying compressed force on the spot.
