Siemens and OCC Create an All-Electric Chopper

Tue, 10/19/2010 - 7:33am

Siemens challenged Orange County Choppers (OCC) to build an all-electric chopper that showcases each industry that Siemens is involved with. The all-electric chopper features new and recycled materials, LED lighting by OSRAM SYLVANIA, and an on-board charger that can be plugged into any 110-volt outlet.

The chopper has a range of 60 miles on a single charge, and a recharge time of 5 hours (1-2 with a charging station). It is the first all-electric bike built by OCC, and it promotes the message of sustainability and green technologies.

The video takes a look at how OCC uses the AF-6080 Five-Axis Waterjet system and the Siemens SINUMERIK control to create some amazing 3D work for OCC choppers. People are still surprised that you can cut metal with water.
