Forged 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers have better performance, and it eliminates a series of disadvantages that casting technology may bring. BONOSS chose forged 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 aluminum alloy for wheel spacers while offering forged SCM440 steel alloy wheel bolts. BONOSS believes forged materials have better performance and can provide more customer safety.
What Are Forged 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Wheel Spacers?
BONOSS produces the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and they are fitted with increased wheel clearance between the wheel and hub assembly. The manufacturing process of aluminum wheel spacers covers many metal manufacturing processes, which include cutting, folding, welding, machining, stamping, punching, shearing, and forging. But only forging and casting manipulate the shape of the metal within the metal, allowing for more significant reshaping.
Are Forged 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Wheel Spacers Better Than Casting?
The main differences between casting and forging 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers are as follows: Casting is heating an aluminum alloy in a furnace until it melts. The liquid aluminum alloy is poured into a mold or die to form the component shape when in the liquid state. Forging is applying heat and mechanical energy to an aluminum alloy to change its shape while in the solid state. BONOSS uses forging technology to produce high-quality 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers.
Given the complexity and size of some industrial parts, casting has become the main manufacturing process. It has many benefits, among which casting reduces the metal removal required to complete the finished part while machining complex components. It is suitable for producing large parts, with machine production, less labor, and fewer technicians, reducing production costs. Some manufacturers of 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers choose the casting method to produce their products.
Despite the many benefits of casting, there is the possibility of contamination when the metal is in a liquid state. In the cooled state, internal tearing or cracking defects may occur as the mass cools at different rates. Cast 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers tend to be prone to cavitation and have a weaker internal structure, creating a greater potential for fracture.
With forged 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers, the aluminum alloy is heated to the plastic stage. The machine applies compression to elongate the material and make it smaller in cross-section. It is possible to shape the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers to change the internal microstructure to disperse the alloy concentration and eliminate voids, resulting in a denser part. It gives 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers higher fatigue strength, enhances the mechanical properties and stress levels of the wheel spacers, and reduces the possibility of failure.
Are Wheel Bolts for 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Wheel Spacers Also Forged?
BONOSS offers forged wheel bolts for both the slip-on and bolt-on 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale wheel spacers, where the slip-on type wheel spacers require longer wheel bolts for fastening, and the forged SCM440 steel alloy has excellent ultimate tensile strength and proof load so that you can purchase the wheel spacers with longer wheel bolts. Bolt-on wheel spacers are also available with SCM440 forged wheel bolts as accessories, so you don’t need to spend extra money to buy them, but you need to install them together with the stock wheel bolts.
