Motorcycle footpegs are where you keep your feet to give yourself a steady feeling of balance and comfort. When you have a nice set of footpegs where you can keep your feet steady, your ride will feel more comfortable and youll be a bit more confident when it comes time to make turns.
Normally, there are two kinds of material options to produce motorcycle foot pegs. One is cast stainless steel, and the other is cast aluminum. Cast aluminum foot pegs are lighter, but not quite as durable as stainless steel, especially when coming into contact with the ground or rocks. As cast stainless steel motorcycle foot pegs are extremely durable and corrosion-resistant, which are popular in the market.
Motorcycle Foot Pegs Manufacturing Process
CFS Foundry, the top leading stainless steel inevstment casting manufacturer in China, can supply OEM manufacturing service for different motorcycle foot pegs. Typical cast stainless steel grade used to make foot pegs can be 17-4 ph. Heat treated stainless steel foot pegs are built to last, and come with a lifetime warranty. Here, let’s introduce the main steps of the manufacturing process in detail.
Step 1: Investment Casting
Investment casting, sometimes precision investment casting or lost wax casting, is a manufacturing method used used to create complex and detailed industrial parts and shapes. While motorcycle foot pegs made using the stainless steel investment casting process are often produced one part at a time, they are produced in multiples for larger volume production. Cast stainless steel motorcycle foot pegs with complex geometries and intricate details can be created with little worry about die wear or dimensional changes.
Other advantages of investment cast stainless steel foot pegs include: excellent surface finish, high dimensional accuracy, no flash or parting lines, etc.
Step 2: Solution Heat Treatment
Stainless steel motorcycle foot pegs are generally heat-treated to eliminate the inner stress caused during the casting process. Moreover, the ductility and corrosion resistance properties can be strengthened.
Step 3: Machining
The thru holes of motorcycle foot pegs are generally cast out directly, but as the tolerances of the holes need to meet +0.1mm, the foot pegs has to be further machined.
Step 4: Surface Finish
Surface finish of cast stainless steel motorcycle foot pegs can be electropolished or mirror polished. Electropolishing is a chemical polishing process that can make the foot pegs look more shinning. And mirror polishing is the mechanical hand polishing process, which can achieve a mirror finish, but it costs high and lead time is also much longer. Electropolishing can polish all the areas of the foot pegs, while mirror polishing can only polish outer surfaces that can be touched by wheel.
