Quality and design

Top quality wheels

The quality of our wheels is our number one priority - from the very first sketch through to series production.

Our AUTEC lightweight metal wheels are manufactured in high-tech production facilities in line with the latest technological standards.
We carry out extensive quality control at every stage of production. The QM systems of all our manufacturing operations have been certified as DIN EN ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 compliant and all of our wheels are tested to German standards by the TÜV.

Furthermore practically all wheel types are covered by an ABE.

 

 

AUTEC is a place of innovation and creative designs that add an individual flair to any vehicle.
We always have our finger on the pulse and our ingenuity and love of detail is reflected in attractive designs that suit every taste.

Multi-spoke, double spoke, cross spoke or premium-quality finishes such as hyper silver and black metallic - the design possibilities are practically endless.

Throughout the development our designs we are always striving to create the perfect combination of form and functionality.


Wheel program

Development and production

The production process

When developping wheel designs, AUTECs internal design and technical department uses the most modern CAD programs.

Already during design process the wheels are technically evaluated.
By means of the FEM analysis, the optimum weight and maximum carrying capacity of the wheel is calculated previous to production process.
This ensures short development times.

All wheels are produced in low pressure or gravity die casting technology. After a 100% x-ray checking the wheels are heat treated and  mechanically treated in CNC machines.
Then a 100% leakage test is carried out. In the fully automated paint line the wheels are covered with powder primer, paint and clear coat. After a final quality control, they are packed in covers and boxes designed by AUTEC.

When receiving the goods in the warehouse, in-house quality checks are carried out again using the most modern measure and testing methods in order to fulfil our wish to satisfy even the highest demands.
