Also this month, It repeats monthly appointment GIVEN, where you can meet among motorcycle enthusiasts, designer, or friends.
This month we present a beautiful CR&S VUN deeply updated aesthetics, the “Sporty”.
In conjunction EICMA, The event will be held on the Friday of the fair, after a day of meetings and beautiful motorcycles, what better than a good party to collect ideas?
As usual, admission is free, beer, sausages, good music and fun are guaranteed, this edition is Free registration required through EventBrite.
In GIVEN do not just motorcycles, but design projects in general, We realized for the company EJOT a prototype very unusual, it is a screw on the size never seen, whose height is 1,60m for weight 290kg. This project has served the company to beat a World lifting records, and I would say that we were able to meet the customer's expectations both from the weight standpoint reached, obbligatorimente 300 kg, with the ability to change it to + -20kg, both from the point of view of aesthetics final.
As a first step, we first carried out a study of design ed engineering. This was a mandatory step but crucial since it allows to better evaluate the possible procedures to be carried out for the realization of the object; especially if, as in this case, They are required many operations and many processes. The approach differs depending on the project you have in front, in our case allowed us to evaluate a realization through a mix of techniques and materials.
The soul of the screw is composed of a block of steel settled, They have been pasted on the surface of stampe 3D that are going to reconstruct the appearance of the vine. These external parts were printed in PLA da November “in home” dove, After a few weeks of release, They have been sanded, pasted steel, grouted and finally painted. During the assembly and construction of the screw, a continuous weight monitoring has enabled us to keep under control the screw, while confirming the engineering studies previously.
The same procedure was done for the trolley, the beams of steel They have been welded among them (so as to be able to act both as a support for the screw that transport) and subsequently painted red.
Here are the images that illustrate the various steps undertaken to implement the prototype.
Stay tuned and stay up to date, a similar project ( if not even more bizarre) could knock on our door at any moment.
A beautiful gallery of photos of the event EICMA at the UM Global stand that saw us partakers of the creation of the prototype that you can see in the pictures and the preparation of the "Customization Corner". The aim of both projects was to assess the Italian market response to the motion produced UM and also to analyze the new possibilities offered by customization "on demand" linked to modern prototyping and 3D printing techniques.
The results in terms of public response has been extremely rewarding.
Thanks to those who went to greet us and to see what we did.
The historic brand Moto Guzzi, belonging to the Piaggio group, He received the Motorcycle Design Association Award, a testament to the quality of the direct style center from Miguel Galluzzi.
The awards ceremony, It held mercoledì¬ morning in the Scorpio room inside the conference center EICMA, It made about the Italian style and the quality and professionalism of the Piaggio design center. It 'was the president of the Motorcycle Design Association in person, Glynn Kerr, to deliver into the hands Dario Lopez, on behalf of 'graphic area of the Piaggio Group, the coveted award that annually gives recognition of the design world to the best motorcycle product in terms of innovation and style. Present at the ceremony were Donato Cannatello, designer and member of the international.
For the edition 2009 the awards, the organization design (boasting 165 members across four continents) It decided to grant the award not for a single model, but three belonging to the same brand, in this case Guzzi. The award is therefore went to the V12 Strada, the V12 and V12 LM X.
Motorcycle Design Association brief description
"Motorcycle design is a unique and highly specialized area, yet there has previously been no central body to represent the cause, an omission which has been to the detriment of both designers and manufacturers alike.
As a result, the Motorcycle Design Association was created in 2001 by co-founders Glynn Kerr and Francois-Marie Dumas. The aims of the association are to bring together motorcycle designers of all nationalities, to promote their activities and to ease communication between designers and potential clients. We are also effective in promoting students' work, and helping create links between colleges and the motorcycle industry.
The Association now boasts a membership of over 150 members, including freelance designers, engineers, modelmakers and design studios all over the world."
