– Design, Engineering, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) & Programming
Each individual Brixton Forged wheel set is entirely conceived and crafted in our California based manufacturing facility. Since the beginning, Brixton Forged has voluntarily chosen to produce locally. As a result, we make full use of the outstanding talents of our Engineers and maintain full control over the quality of our wheels at every stage of the manufacturing process.
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
– APP 6061-T6 Aerospace Grade Aluminum Forgings
Quality begins at the foundation of every product; a strong foundation is the basis for a quality result. Locally sourced and forged, we utilize APP raw forgings throughout the full line of our forged production. APP is the same OEM forging supplier for supercar companies such as Lamborghini and Ferrari.
APP 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 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.’
APP 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 which meets the highest standards of our team.
