"Arevo's continuous carbon fibre technology is very impressive as it affords numerous design possibilities and provides excellent strength and durability," said Arno Pieterse from Pilot in a press release by Arevo. "The technology truly is a revolution in composites manufacturing and enables us to offer all the high-performance qualities we envisioned for Eve."
"We thank Pilot for the confidence they have shown in the Arevo DNA technology, which is unique in the additive manufacturing (AM) world," said Hemant Bheda, co-founder and chairman of Arevo. "We feel we are making a significant impact in the bike industry and see near-term applicability in other areas of green urban mobility, from electric scooters to e-vtols, or flying cars."
Arevo's unique AM process 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 optimised for anisotropic composite materials.
"As this manufacturing technology offers such unique possibilities, it enabled us to redefine the way we design bicycles," said Bastiaan Thijs of bicycledesign.studio. "The technology gave us the ability to create a truly one-piece design, carbon fibre-reinforced, fully-integrated eBike frame for the Eve9. Furthermore, it is truly remarkable that this frame is 100 per cent recyclable." (PC)
