Instead of using traditional casting methods typical of tripod construction, SIRUI is a pioneer in using forging technology in manufacturing. During the forging process, the deformation and recrystallization of metal causes the structure of the metal to be more welded together and compact - greatly increasing its strength-to-weight ratio.This enables SIRUI to build products with exceptional strength and durability that are surprisingly light. Forging ensures the integrity of metallic fibers so that it remains consistent inside & out. Good integrity allows for a longer lifetime as well as better performance. In fact, the forging process can create parts that are much stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process.
