How is the AddBike+ produced?
Our manufacturing process in 4 steps
The manufacturing process
The production of AddBikes starts with ordering the metal components that make up our chassis. his first step is carried out with several partners each one having complementary know-how in cutting, drilling, bending, welding, threading, reaming. All these steps create the required form for every part. The main objective is to make sure dimensions are correct and to ensure material quality.
The material protection
Each steel component is shipped to relevant partners for protective overlay application. This well-known process is called electrophoretic deposition (ED). It brings additional resistance to the material in question, especially against corrosion. In addition, the AddBike’s main part of the frame undergo a painting completion in order ensure both shock and scratch resistance as well as esthetics.
The product finalization: Assembling
Components are now ready for assembly. To assemble the AddBike, the required parts are sent to our manufacturing partner
which is a French Support and Work Assistance Establishment (ESAT) located in Chaponost, near Lyon.
Wheels, brakes, screws, hardware, compact plates and other remaining parts required for the assembly of an AddBike are supplied independently and are stocked in the assembly workshop of our partner.
