A Day Inside aFe POWER
This entry was posted on June 23, 2017 by Josh Biggers.
It's hard to convey here what all we do at aFe POWER. The company has grown leaps and bounds since its introduction in 1999, and even in the last 5 years. Take a look inside at some of the different departments and product lines aFe manufactures here in Southern California for a wide variety of vehicles.
Proud employees using the latest technology to bring you performance parts designed to transform your driving experience.
We design and produce all of the aFe Air Filters in house, with dual production lines that allow for both automated high production, and another manual line which allows us to do custom and low-run filter batches. We even have the ability to allow you to Build Your Own Custom Air Filter for those special needs.
Take a quick look at the aFe Automation Oiling Robots at work. The robots are specifically controlled to apply the perfect amount of oil to each filter.
Cold Air Intake Systems
This is really where aFe POWER excels with the large engineering staff on board. From conception of the product, being able to 3D scan the engine bay, CAD design the parts and estimate airflow, to physically 3D printing the prototype parts to check for performance and fitment, refining until the Intake System is perfected and the design sent to build tooling.
Here is a short video of the new 2017 Duramax L5P 3D printed intake system being installed for testing. This kit even works with the factory ram-air hood developed by GM.
Whether you drive a new Corvette C7 Z06, an F-150 Raptor or even a Civic Si, aFe POWER has an exhaust system designed to improve the sound and flow of your vehicle. Featuring in-house mandrel bending for smooth airflow, and specifically sized systems will improve horsepower and torque, all bolting up with minimal install time.
aFe has a multitude of benders on site, handling anything from 2.5" piping all the way up to 5" used on large diesel applications. All of the bending is CNC computer controlled for perfect replication. See our Herber electric bender in action here working on a Grand Cherokee SRT Exhaust.
Much, Much More...
This is just a sampling of some of the products aFe POWER designs and builds here in California.
