NOWLAB Develops NERA, The World’s First Fully 3D-Printed E-Motorcycle
Implementing 3D printing innovation for front line e-portability arrangements, NOWLAB the BigRep innovation consultancy has built up the world's first completely (FFF) 3D-printed and utilitarian e-motorcycle, the NERA. As a refinement from comparable models, all NERA parts, barring electrical segments, have been 3D-printed, including tires, edges, casing, fork and seat. "The NERA combines several innovations developed by NOWLAB, such as the airless tire, functional integration and embedded sensor technology”, clarifies Daniel Büning, Co-Founder and Managing Director of NOWLAB. "This bike and our other prototypes push the limits of engineering creativity and will reshape AM technology as we know it.”
NERA, designed by Marco Mattia Cristofori and Maximilian Sedlak, outlines the enormous advantages that 3D printing offers for the generation of end-utilize parts, especially for cluster sizes between parcel estimate one to little arrangement by decreasing lead times and costs, advancing supply chains, and constraining reliance on provider systems. In building NERA, the specialists didn't just adjust existing cruiser structures, rather imagined a bicycle for vast organisation FFF innovation, setting a benchmark for genuinely imaginative plan; breaking the points of confinement of customary mechanical designing. Among the numerous advancements highlighted in NERA are the airless tires with altered tread; a lightweight rhomboid wheel edge, adaptable guards (rather than suspension) and the electric motor, which is fitted in an adjustable case.
