Infini-Forge

Infini-Forge

A high performing, patented solution for vehicles operating in safety critical, demanding situations requiring durability and stability. Infini-Forge was developed as a result of major advances in process technology, allowing wheels to be manufactured through a hot induction forming (HIF) process. This enabled our engineers to produce wheels specifically for high load-bearing vehicles and high-pressure tyres, with the wheels achieving a lifespan 50% longer than conventionally manufactured, multi-piece wheels.

The revolutionary and patented Infini-Forge process achieves exceptional manufacturing accuracy, allowing material to be placed where it is needed (and taken out where it is not), leading to an increase in rim strength. And with the main contact areas machined at the end of the process, a 100% round wheel with perfect stress distribution is guaranteed. The process also means that the contact points between the wheel and tire bead are perfectly smooth, with the rim design featuring extended flanges to further protect the tire.

As part of the development process, the moveero R&D team have subjected the wheel to rigorous on- and off-site testing with several manufacturers, operating laden and unladen vehicles over extensive periods of time.

Launched in 2019 and already being specified by customers worldwide, Infini-Forge wheels can withstand high loads and provide improved life-expectancy. Tested and verified the Infini-Forge wheel is a great solution for high-load and safety-critical applications, with its benefits translating directly into increased durability and therefore vehicle up-time. Operating in extremely demanding environments, a vehicle breakdown of any description can severely affect both operational and financial performance, but with tyre-pressures of 10 bar, a failure of the wheel or tire could have catastrophic consequences. In Infini-Forge, we have developed a product that not only delivers technically, but also provides a reassurance of quality and safety, major considerations when the consequences of failure are so severe.
