Our aluminium flywheels are made of the highest quality 6061 T6 aluminium. The material is fantastic for strength, heat dissipation and of course reduction in weight. The friction surface we use is an incredibly strong 1045 steel. The plates are milled to meet our high specifications. The flywheel can mate with any type of clutch material, including organic, kevlar, ceramic, metallic and sintered iron. We attach the replaceable friction surface with military grade aerospace fasteners. With these replaceable plates there is no need to replace the entire flywheel when the clutch or flywheel is at the end of its life, saving time and money. The ring gears we use are also made from
1050 steel and are heat treated for durability. The gears are heated then pressed on and secured with grade 8 button screws. We were the first to utilize a stepped dowel system in most of our flywheel applications. This doweling method ensures that once the pressure
plate is installed the dowels cannot be removed because they become locked into place. No steel flywheel can compete with the awesome serviceability, strength and superior design of our aluminium flywheels. If there was a better material out there, we would be using it.
