Zo ziet de eerste geprinte titanium velg eruit

De velgenset waarmee u beslist geen stoeprandje wilt pakken.

We bespeuren de laatste tijd veel innovatiedrang op het gebied van velgen. Van geïntegreerde remschijven tot de doorbraak van carbon rimjobs bij grote autobouwers. Deze week gaat velgmaker HRE daar overheen met de eerste 3D-geprinte titanium velg. 

Reguliere lichtmetalen velgen worden vervaardigd uit een aluminium monoblock, waarbij ruwweg 80 procent van het materiaal wordt weggehaald. Bij deze printvelg is het andersom: alleen het titanium dat daadwerkelijk nodig is wordt gebruikt. En dan krijg je dus dit soort voorbeeldvelgen die we niet echt als fraai kunnen bestempelen, maar hé, het gaat om de techniek. 

Omdat titanium sterker (én corrosiebestendiger) is dan aluminium is er meer mogelijk qua vorm en stijl, waardoor de velgboeren veel creatiever met hun designs kunnen worden. Een beetje zoals in de stijl van Graf Weckerle, maar dan met meer, eh, stijl. Over de prijs is nog niets bekend.
