STEEL Vs. ALLOY WHEELS Which One Is Stronger? Hydraulic Press Test!


Welcome to the Hydraulic Press Channel Today we have very really interesting video We are going to test which is stronger Aluminium rim, or steel rim and the idea is pretty simple, We are going to just put the rim and the tire in the press and then we will crush them and see how much pressure it takes and then we can calculate the force the we needed to crush the rims and this video is done in cooperation with with Valtavalo They gave new LED tubes for our workshop, and I also have couple of as in filming lights They should be really good filming lights because they have good color rendering index and, they don’t flicker at all. If you want to learn more about the lights, I have video on BeyondThePress Channel where we change the lights to our workshop and do some tests with high speed camera at the lights and, they don’t really flicker at all on any frame rate and we are also going to use our Chronos 1.4 high speed camera today And I really like my new setup where the lights are attached to the blast screen They give really soft light because they are so large compared to my old spotlights… so Nice to see how the picture is going to look today Yea! But, uh let’s start with the aluminium rim I think this is going to be harder than the steel rim, but Let’s find out. And this is really dangerous, don’t ever try anything like this at home *Press noises* And here we go! *Air escapes and tire pops* Yeah it broke from the back And from the front, so I think that’s finished And I don’t know what was the big pressure But, it was this amount of force I see to the edit Yup, and I don’t know how strong it was, but I think it wasn’t like stupid strong Aaand I’m bit disappointed it first broke in the back But I have more of these So I’m going to switch new one there And then we are going to crush it again So you can see how it breaks from the behind But, eh, let’s check the damage from this one And I think we are going to use this one as in like reference on the force, so here is the end result It’s pretty broken
