Float on

A leading prototyping company is making a big splash after helping to create an innovative rowing machine that could leave regular gym equipment trailing in its wake. 

 Ogle was asked to build a prototype of the FloatRower™, a pioneering rowing machine which emulates the sensation of rowing on water and helps people to accurately hone their technique.  

 The parts and prototype needed to be high-quality and robust so they could be vigorously tested by rowers and gym-goers, before commercial production began. 

 The project was complex and for Ogle to meet its brief, a series of technical approaches were applied including vacuum casting, SLS, CNC and SLA masters.
