These chunks of raw forged billet are the base for all of their wheels (except for their flowformed series). HRE has an impressive CNC milling process that take these shapeless pieces of metal and slowly and methodically carve them down into their wheels.
Their CNC maching is broken down into a number of areas. This is the outside of their monoblock machining area.
Here you can see some blank raw billet pieces waiting to be machined into a set of monoblocks. The odd chunks leaning up against the post on the floor are the off-cuts that are left over from the machining process.
Here you can see a raw forging that is about to be machined into the center section of a multipiece machine. You can see the amount of material that is taken off on the machine’s cutting head above the forging.
Once the forgings are machined into their respective components, they are brought over to their finishing services areas. Here you can see a rack of all black.
Once the wheels are assembled and meet HRE’s guidelines, they are boxed up and ready to ship to their customers around the world. Here you can see HRE’s stock of their FlowFormed wheels and lips and barrels ready to be shipped or made into a set of wheels.
