E-mobility technology firm JAMADE has launched its latest 3D printed underwater scooter called AMAZEA. Fans can find the scooter at boot Duesseldorf. This is at the German global water sports boat and trade show. 75% of the scooter was additively made by the use of the BigRep ONE.
The AMAZEA is a watersports machine that draws a driver by the sea. The designers of JAMADE were motivated by the manner a dolphin slides in the water. The aim of AMAZEA is to be an environmentally-safe, emission-free, and low-noise machine for undersea investigation doubled with swift liquid motion.
The additively manufactured has a weight of 25 kg has an easy to use control board. Its electric BI engine drive is run by two turbines, each 3.1 KW. There is also a rechargeable lithium-ion battery installed in the front of the scooter. The machine can be run at a depth down to eighteen meters. The utmost pace is 20 km/h underwater, or 30 km/h gliding over the water.
The body of the scooter and other structural parts are created by the use of the 3 BigRep ONE huge-format 3D printers. The founder of JAMADE, Janko Duch said the following:
“We opted for the BigRep ONE due to its cost efficiency, accuracy, and quality when compared to the extremely high investment for traditional tools, particularly in the first year’s lower quantity.” Duch thinks that AMAZEA has the possibility to transform marine motor technology. He also thinks it has the opportunity to change the consumer participation in water sports across the universe.
JAMADE utilizes BigRep’s Pro HT filament. This is because it is for marine settings with a softening resistance up to 115 °C. Therefore, it provides a notable rise in temperature resistance and also minimal shrinkage and warping.
Also, Pro HT suits the ecological theory of the product for the fiber is CO2 neutral and environmentally-friendly under the correct conditions. Furthermore, the full-format printing makes sure the scooter’s water-proof, acknowledging that if it was collected by use of many small pieces, holes would be a possible risk for leakages.
High versatility, pace, time, and affordability, and operating dependability are among the advantages provided by the 1m 3 print size BigRep ONE 3D printer.
“This scooter is a BigRep showcase of our digital solutions empowering production by leveraging the full potential of large-format 3D printers with high-performance filaments,” says Managing Director of BigRep, Martin Back.
Furthermore, additive manufacturing as a production option allows additional customization such as shapes or size changes. It also allows customization of requests or feedback. All these go directly to the product.
“The project also signifies the rapid progress of 3d printing into the serial production of consumer end products, opening a new dimension for am in similar niche but high-tech markets as well,” adds Back.
For the initial year, AMAZEA scooters’ a 3-digit number are scheduled to be 3D printed. The cost of the scooter is EUR 7950.
