STILRIDE launched a parent company called STILFOLD, through which it will sell its “industrial origami” manufacturing technology to industry.
Through STILFOLD, designers and manufacturers will be able to use specially-designed fittings for robotic arms to fold sheets of steel over curves, significantly reducing the environmental impact of production. STILFOLD’s specialist software will enable designers to simulate folding and unfolding their desired structure from a metal sheet, before programming the robotic arms to carry out the complex folding process.
STILRIDE is already using STILFOLD to build a hotly anticipated e-motorbike – the Sport Utility Scooter One (SUS1) – which will go on pre-series release this autumn.
STILFOLD aims to empower designers, architects and manufacturers with the tools to design and engineer everything from buildings and bridges to kitchen appliances in a sustainable way, using cutting-edge steelwork, robotics and innovative design.
STILFOLD was officially incorporated on 25th May and the software and hardware will be made available to the market in 2023.
