AREVO has announced that the company will display the first 3D-printed carbon fiber unibody production bike frame of the world at the Eurobike 2019 that will be held from 4th September to 7th September. Also, the company will come up with the first 3D printed thermoplastic rim of the world that has been designed by Bill Stephens of StudioWest, who is a Eurobike Gold Award-winning industrial designer.
The company will announce a new e-bike frame design next week. A bike industry leader based in the Netherlands will have the opportunity to display this new e-bike at the exhibition hall of Eurobike.
AREVO, through its unique technology, “AREVO DNA”, is making a significant impact on the bike manufacturing industry and also in other areas such as urban mobility. It is not only unique but also features patented software algorithms enabling generative design techniques, free-motion robotics for “True 3D” construction, and direct energy deposition for virtually void-free construction all optimized for anisotropic composite materials.
There are many more benefits such as a replacement of a laborious manual process with a fully-automated, “lights out” production model, delivering on the promise of localized manufacturing or “on-shoring”, which creates greater independence for bike brands, and a much greater “freedom of design” for manufacturers that creates the possibility of fully-customized bikes made on an “on-demand” basis, an approach AREVO calls “DESIGN. PRINT. GO.”
“AREVO DNA offers a new paradigm for product designers, it forever changes how we can design and build anything. This technology allows us to push design boundaries in a way that was impossible until now. AREVO is changing the paradigm to ‘Manufacturing for Design’.” Mr. Stephens from AREVO quoted this and will elaborate more on the concept in a presentation entitled as “3D Printing Carbon Fiber Frames for Production”, on 5th September.
