With increasing technical requirements, everything must get lighter. Especially in the automotive industry, light construction plays a decisive role. However, this is also becoming increasingly relevant in other industries. At the latest when operating costs can partially be saved through consistent reduction of the total weight. Strong polymers have become a perfect alternative to conventional plastics.
We carry out our Quick Check, whilst taking the requirements of our customers into consideration. This allows us to assess where to fine tune in order to reduce the total weight of the solution.
A decisive factor for weight reduction is the material. Especially when it comes to redesigning metal parts in plastic. Every component must be made straight away from the right plastic that matches the material. In addition, the MuCell® and the ProFoam® process allows us to develop solutions that have additional functions with the simultaneous benefit of having reduced weight and cost control. Organic sheets, which can even be combined with MuCell® components, are another future-oriented possibility – for even lighter results.
