Lightweight Design in Production

The aim of the product-neutral forum is to provide new impulses and to support the development of new approaches or solutions in the use of lightweight construction techniques in production. In addition to this exchange platform, the working group will collect and convey specialist information as well as inform about trends and current developments. In addition, contacts meeting the demands can be established within this framework.


Lightweight construction in its various forms offers enormous potential for saving weight and energy and for integrating new functions in components. However, some questions need to be answered in order to be able to use the benefits of lightweight construction in production. Key words in this context are, for example, material-appropriate construction, material selection or the consequences for subsequent areas. This is the aim of the "Initiative for lightweight construction for production", in which various institutions have come together to provide practical answers to these questions.
