Swiss manufacturer BMC produces carbon frames for racing bikesMarch 2017
Carbon frames for racing bikes with BINDER technology
Carbon comes into play when something has to be extremely lightweight and highly stable. In Grenchen, Switzerland, automated manufacturing is used with the help of BINDER Drying and heating chamber (FED series) to produce carbon frames for racing bikes for the first time ever. In 2011, Australian Cadel Evens won the Tour de France on a BMC racing bike thanks to the enthusiastic support of his team members, who contested the world‘s most difficult stage race on carbon racing bikes.
The "Stargate" is a high-tech radial braider and forms part of a complex automation system. Using it, BMC is the first organization in the world to manufacture complete carbon frames in an automated process.
