Editor's note: We have just learned that JEC World 2020 has been postponed to May 12 to 14 because of the coronavirus.
Arevo, a Silicon Valley company transforming composites manufacturing through digitalization and automation, has selected 3DPC as its new partner in its composite manufacturing-as-a-service (“MaaS”) program for the on-demand production of ultra-strong, lightweight thermoplastic composite parts. To demonstrate its capabilities, the company is introducing the e-Moto personal mobility device (PMD), said to be the world’s first composite e-bike/e-scooter hybrid at JEC World (Villepinte Center, Hall 5, booth S-92) .

MaaS-produced parts are made possible by Arevo’s Aqua platform, the world’s first industrial-grade, fully automated robotic system capable of making thermoplastic composite parts of up to one meter cubic volume, and Arevo’s Xplorator software, the first, fully integrated composite tool chain that accelerates product development from concept to production.
With breakthroughs in software, robotics, and materials science, Arevo is able to provide composite parts with unprecedented low cost, true production scale and reduced design cycles for a wide range of products. The e-Moto concept vehicle results from a collaboration between Arevo and StudioWest and represents a solution to urban transport problems: an easy to ride, energy efficient personal mobility vehicle.
“At JEC World we look forward to meeting with representatives from the consumer, industrial and aerospace sectors to demonstrate how our MaaS service can produce truly innovative thermoplastic composite parts, as shown by the e-Moto,” said Hemant Bheda, Co-Founder and Chairman of Arevo. “Our easy to use Xplorator software accelerates design cycles for composite parts from months to hours. Our MaaS infrastructure significantly improves the time-to-market and ROI in the development and production of new micromobility vehicles, sporting goods, eVTOLs, commercial drones and satellites.”
In addition to the e-Moto, Arevo is exhibiting samples ranging from custom composite sporting goods to aerospace pieces engineered for extreme performance, all done in collaboration with global market leaders.
