Hexcel has helped Arevo to produce a 3D-printed commuter bike using its carbon fiber.
Hexcel has helped Arevo to produce a 3D-printed commuter bike using its carbon fiber.

Hexcel Corporation, a well-known advanced composites manufacturer, has helped Arevo to produce a 3D-printed commuter bike using its carbon fiber.

To demonstrate its software and robotics at work, Arevo partnered with StudioWest to create a true 3D-printed carbon fiber bicycle. A reimagined form factor removed a seat stay between the seat and back wheel, adding strength and simplicity.

Conventional 3D printers typically print in two dimensions on a stacked horizontal plane. Arevo’s robotic arm makes all axes available enabling true 3D printing, removing design constraints and providing the freedom to create.

With the 3D-printed bike, Arevo demonstrates the potential of the technology, which will be used to produce lightweight parts with superior strength for applications where designers want to make carbon fiber parts but are hesitant due to the high cost and labor-intensive process of making them.

“With companies like Hexcel as partners, we are certain that we have the technology, team and tools in place to commercialize our software and fabrication process to build high strength parts that the manufacturing industry hasn’t been able to conceive and construct before,” said Arevo CEO Jim Miller.

Brett Schneider, Hexcel President – Global Fibers, said, “We congratulate Arevo on this technological leap forward. We’re excited to be part of the project and appreciate the trust they have in our products. We look forward to continuing to be a supplier for many more projects like this one.”

Based in California, Arevo is ushering in the next era of 3D printing and is transforming the way manufactured products are conceived, designed, built, and maintained.

Arevo recently secured financing to build on the full-scale commercialization of its technology across a diverse set of industries such as aerospace, defense, transportation, automotive, consumer electronics, sporting goods, medical, and oil and gas.
