ARION4 project - University of Liverpool team (jpg)
With the help of Renishaw's AM machines, the ULV team designed and additively manufactured the CTS, a vital component for the ARION4. The part attaches to the headtube to hold the layshaft and front wheel in place. The 3D printed component weighs less than 600g and maintains stiffness due to the mechanical properties of titanium. The component is the backbone of the ARION4 transmission system, allowing riders to put in as much power as possible without worrying about the structural integrity of the front of the bike.
