E-mobility tech company JAMADE unveiled its new 3D printed underwater scooter, AMAZEA at boot Duesseldorf, the international water sports trade and boat show in Germany. Seventy-five percent of the scooter was additively manufactured using the BigRep ONE.
The AMAZEA is a watersports device that pulls a diver through the sea. JAMADE’s designers were inspired by the way a dolphin glides through the water. The AMAZEA’s aims to be an environmentally friendly, emission-free and low-noise device for underwater exploration – coupled with swift fluid motion.
Scooter - Kg - Control - Panel - BI
The 3D printed scooter weighs only 25 kg and has a user-friendly control panel. Its electric BI motor drive is powered by two engines, each 3.1 KW each, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery set up in the scooter’s front. The device can be operated at a depth down to 18 meters. Maximum speed is 20 km/h underwater, or 30 km/h gliding above the water.
The scooter’s body and other structural components are produced using three BigRep ONE large-format 3D printers. Janko Duch, founder of JAMADE said, “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 believes that “AMAZEA has the potential to redefine maritime vehicle technology and the consumer experience in water sports around the world.”
JAMADE - BigRep - Pro - HT - Filament
JAMADE uses BigRep’s Pro HT filament as it is suitable for marine environments with a softening resistance up to 115 °C, which offers a significant increase in temperature resistance, as well as minimal warping and shrinkage. Pro HT also matches the environmentally friendly concept of the product for the filament is CO2 neutral and biodegradable under the correct conditions. In addition, the large-format printing ensures the scooter’s water-resistance, considering that if it was assembled using several smaller...
