Composite specialist, Lamiflex uses the VISI suite of design and manufacturing tools from Vero Software to put a modern spin on the traditional exercise bike, creating an innovative piece of luxury fitness equipment using composite materials. In 2009, Lamiflex were involved in the development of an innovative piece of fitness equipment designed by Italian product designer Luca Schieppati. The Ciclotte is a unique exercise bike with an ultra-modern carbon fibre frame, touch screen display and reduced pedal distance to ensure the correct bio-mechanics throughout the complete leg rotational movement. The Ciclotte has been designed to accurately reproduce the dynamics and performance of on-road pedalling and is ideal for high intensity aerobic training such as 'spinning', which is all possible because of the innovative epicycloid crank system. To coincide with the Ciclotte project, Lamiflex also took time to evaluate the software market and invest in a new integrated CADCAM system. "Previously at Lamiflex, we used a parametric CAD system that we found difficult to use and quite restrictive when working with complex organic surface forms. After extensive benchmark testing, we decided to implement VISI from Vero Software as we believed it offered the best balance between performance and price. We are currently
running multiple licenses of VISI Modelling and VISI Analysis for Design, and VISI Machining with Compass Technology for 2D through to 5 axis milling", explains CAD designer, Marco Perani.
