KIT Lightweight Design Network


Large-scale processing of lightweight structures is technologically challenging up to today, though the industrial application is capturing conventional applications. Taking advantage of the design concept’s lightweight capability comes along with the concerted development of suitable, cost-efficient manufacturing, handling and finishing technologies.
