Kühl Wheels: STAMPED DESIGNLos Gatos, CA Epilogics is pleased to announce a new Kühl Wheel design which integrates the hub and spokes into a one-piece stamping. This simple, cost effective, configuration simplifies the manufacturing process and reduces the number of components.
Designed for high volume production, the stamped Kühl Wheel demonstrated very low stress levels in FEA (finite element analysis) simulations. Prototype fabrication and test are planned over the next few months.
Invented in Switzerland, the Kühl Wheels patent pending technology saves weight with a unique spider (center section) design comprised of a series of spokes with a rectangular cross section. Utilizing standard steel rims, Kühl Wheels weigh approximately 20% less than conventional steel wheels.
Founded in 1988, The Epilogics Group develops products based on proprietary, patented technologies, and licenses these technologies to manufacturers in the automotive industry. Epilogics is currently seeking to partner with qualified wheel manufacturers to commercialize its new Kühl Wheels technology.
