AM is going downhill - fast!
Downhill mountain biking is an adrenaline-fueled sport with a simple objective - to get from mountain top to valley bottom as quickly as possible. Competitors negotiate twisting, rock-strewn, tree-lined tracks that include drops, berms and enormous jumps. The demands on both rider and bike are extreme, and now additive manufacturing (AM) is playing a critical role in driving performance to new levels.
The introductory bike range will be manufactured from carbon fibre tubing and lugs produced on a multi-laser high productivity RenAM 500Q metal additive manufacturing (AM) system, at Renishaw's Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre located in Staffordshire, UK.
