Lynk & CO Wheels

Geely Design chose Escenda as their partner for surface designing wheels. We have Surface Designed more than a dozen wheels for Lynk & CO so far.

THE CHALLENGE

  • Interpreting 2D design sketches and capture the design intent into the surface model
  • Following the technical limitations with draft angles, minimum radius sizes brake caliper clearance etc.
  • Constructing for diamond cut surfaces with all the considerations that demands
  • Some quite complex designs, like the wheel in the picture above

THE SOLUTION

  • Close collaboration with the designer to make sure to capture the design intent and to find solutions to technical issues or design improvements
  • Constructing the surface model logically so that changes are easy to implement
  • Keeping to the specific tolerances for the different gateways and releases. Too low quality is of course not accepted, but constructing details with too high tolerances too early is not time efficient since there will certainly be changes
  • Experienced team members make sure we deliver high quality and find the correct design faster. After modeling many wheels the team has knowledge about common weak spots, how to construct for diamond cuts, undercuts etc.

THE RESULT

  • High quality A-class model deliveries following the designer’s intention

  • On time and with the correct tolerances for the gateway

  • Production ready with all technical input taken into consideration

  • Flexibility for the client to ease the workload for their design team
