STILRIDE has been awarded the Best New Technology prize from ISSF, the International Stainless-Steel Forum, for its robotized steel origami to manufacturing for lightweight applications.
STILRIDE’s clean energy-powered personal mobility devices are created using a flexible and sustainable production technology. The STILRIDE electric scooter, made from flat stainless-steel sheets, takes advantage of ancient origami techniques – folding paper to a 3D object – to open for complex designs by simply folding sheet into amazing 3D structures. By using industrial origami, there’s a reduction in parts needed and the ability to create sustainable products based on metal with unique shapes and forms.
The goal of STILRIDE has been to challenge the traditional view of manufacturing by using robotic industrial origami to create from a flat plate in accordance with the material’s properties and geometric nature. And, in this way, to create a safe, attractive and sustainable production and transport platform. There is the potential to create a new cost-effective value chain based on sheet metal materials, enabling manufacturers to design products at a significantly lower weight, with fewer components resulting in cost savings.
