ENVE Composites Factory Tour

Once a panel is created it is ready to be cut. Autometrix cutting machines cut out the pieces required to assemble the days production. ENVE has the first autometrix machines with print heads, which allows them to serialize every carbon component that goes into a rim or component kit. This process of serialized kits ensures all required components are accounted for. Once all the wheel kit pieces are cut and collected in their respective bins, the kits are weighed as a QC check to ensure that the kit is complete and within spec prior to layup. Rim channels are assembled and vacuumed to remove air from the laminate prior to cure. Each and every wheel has complete traceability that this is stored in a database and used to track and ensure quality. Photo by Ian Matteson
