News: Materialise contribute to Lewis Hamilton’s prize bike


When F1 driver Lewis Hamilton was awarded the Graham Hill Trophy at last year's British Driver’s Club awards, he was also promised one of the first Factor 001 bicycles. Developed by BERU f1 systems, a specialist supplier of performance engineering solutions to the Motorsport, Automotive and Marine Industries, the Factor 001 aims to be the most advanced road bicycle ever built. Materialise, leader in rapid prototyping and manufacturing solutions, produced the visual prototype for BERU f1 systems using their patented Mammoth stereolithography and selective laser sintering machines to create a model which was fully representative of the final production bike. Belgian company Materialise launched its manufacturing HQ in Dinnington, Rotherham in 1999 and have been working from the Innovation Technology Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park since 2007.
