How Are Hot Wheels Made in Factory?

  • 82 views

How hot wheels are made starts with a sketch. This first step in the process has been practiced since 1968 and until now. The car designers are given the freedom to come up with a design that echoes Hot Wheels’ reputation. Once a design has been approved, it will be sent to automotive designers to determine what to paint on the body of the car. From this, a Hot Wheels design will be solidified.

The next step would be to draw the “bucket”, also referred to as “silhouette”. This is when the exact size, shape and measurements of the interior, body, chassis and window will be laid out. When the overall design has been approved it will be sent to a 3D modeling machine so that a prototype will be produced. The prototype will then be sent to a test lab where they will be tested not just for durability. The newly designed cars will also be tested for speed on the race track. It will also be tested how much it will hurt when a person step on it.

Other factors that will be taken into consideration before it goes through the production process are the hot wheel’s weight distribution and clearance. When the prototype passes all the tests and guidelines, it will then be sent to the manufacturing plant for mass production.
