Lightweight solutions from a single source
As an engineering service provider, we take a holistic approach. We assess the lightweight potential of components, make the material selection, design the components and their production in accordance with the material, and realize prototype construction and testing – all under the aspects of safety, economy, and sustainability.
Our innovative lightweight design concepts, materials and technologies are proving their worth above all in mobility, especially in rail vehicles. However, they also create desired effects in many other sectors.
Examination of assemblies for lightweight design potential. LCC analysis of lightweight structures. Evaluation of development processes.
System analysis of components or assemblies. Development and systematic evaluation of design concepts.
Material- and production-oriented component design as well as detailed design of lightweight systems with a focus on energy and resource efficiency.
Simulation of components under load. Natural frequency analyses, drape simulations and simulation of manufacturing processes.
Adaptation of manufacturing processes for the efficient production of lightweight structures. Further development of production processes.
Prototype manufacture and test
Manufacturing of individual components and larger assemblies. Design of manufacturing and assembly fixtures. Prototype testing.
Mechanical material characterization. Determination of characteristic values for fiber-reinforced plastics, plastics, metals, wood, foams, etc.
Qualified and IPMA-certified project managers. Implementation of diverse research projects in international cooperations.
