  1. Carbon fiber material and air bladders incoming, we use Toray T700 and T800 carbon fiber material, and a special material air bladders which produces smoother rim walls;
  2. Applying DSC tester to inspect physical properties;
  3. Storing in a refrigerating equipment (-5°C) to maintain the activity of resin;
  4. Prepreg cutting, cutting to desired angles and shapes;
  5. Precise layup & pre-modling, each rim carries its own layup schedule documents which are meticulously by experienced layup workers;
  6. Hot press molding, PC hydraulic molding machines with pressure temperature and time control;
  7. Raw finish rim quality control (QC-1);
  8. Remove the air bladders through the valve hole with a unique process;
  9. Drilling holes in 4D-direction using PC controlled drilling machine;
  10. Quality control (QC-2), check and test;
  11. Smoothing, surface treated by experienced workers;
