Individualized radiator covers for the participants of the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy Central Asia 2018 – thanks to additive manufacturing

A generative design algorithm was used to individualize the radiator covers of the 114 BMW R 1200 GS Rallye bikes: the rider’s names and start numbers were added to the existing CAD data of the part. Subsequently, the radiator covers were printed by using additive manufacturing.

Munich. Experts of the BMW Group Additive Manufacturing Center have teamed up with BMW Motorrad to individualize the bikes of the Int. GS Trophy 2018. A generative design algorithm was used to individualize the radiator covers of the 114 BMW R 1200 GS Rallye bikes: the rider’s names and start numbers were added to the existing CAD data of the part. Subsequently, the radiator covers were printed by using additive manufacturing.

 

In the selective laser melting process aluminum powder is fused by powerful lasers. As no tools are required, every produced component can be different, thus making it the perfect choice for individualization. At the same time, the resulting parts are of a very high strength – perfect for rough conditions like the Int. GS Trophy which took place in Mongolia from June 3 till June 10 2018. An additional milling process was used to create greater contrast and surface quality of the design.

 

As a souvenir from the 2,350 km journey, the individualized radiator covers were handed over to the participants at the awards ceremony.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
