Surveying and Digitization
Before the actual product development is the acquisition of the existing basis on or on which our parts are built. For very complex parts that are not easy to measure, e.g. Measure frame or motor digitally. From countless measuring points, point clouds are created, from which three-dimensional forms are created in an elaborate process of calculation. This is the perfect starting point for our product development.
CAD Product Development
Even at the design stage, you can view newly developed parts directly on the virtual bike in three dimensions. Design, proportion and function become so clear that you can pretty much imagine how it will look real afterwards. This greatly facilitates the work, especially in complex assemblies, where many parts interlock.
We use current CAD programs from Solidworks. Thus, all work in the construction can be handled. Here we can construct individual components (e.g., a footbrake lever), place them in an assembly (e.g., rearset), and simulate the function. This assembly can then in turn be virtually fixed to the vehicle to also check there function and design simultaneously on the bike. This type of construction is ideally suited for vehicle construction. It gives us the flexibility to quickly make changes without violating existing constraints. In this way, new parts are constantly being created, the individual parts of which can be realized as laser cutting, turning or milling products with state-of-the-art machines.
CAD / CAM Programming
Once a product has been finished in CAD, another process takes place for the actual production of the parts. Based on the CAD data, we create machine-readable CAM files taking into account the material, blank blank, machining tool and processing machine. We also use Solidworks with its current CAM version.
