Development, design and technology: lightweight construction is a key technology for the future of the automotive, aerospace and architecture segments. From 19 to 21 September 2017, the Lightweight Technologies Forum at COMPOSITES EUROPE 2017 will for the second time cover issues and questions of user industries concerning modern multi-material systems. Because of its hugely successful premiere in 2016, the second edition of the forum in Stuttgart will be expanded.
Reducing energy and material consumption is essential for long-term economic success in virtually all industrial sectors. Lightweight construction offers a sustainable solution for that, along with great growth potential. The lightweight construction forum tackles the issue from this perspective. Up to 20 exhibitors, more than 30 presentations and several panel discussions make up the content of the Lightweight Technologies Forum 2017, with the main focus being on multi-material lightweight construction.
Combining an exhibition and a presentation forum, the event thus serves as the cross-material interface between metal and fibre-reinforced composite technologies in structural components. In several application-focussed modules, experts will present their real-world experiences with issues revolving around material composites in the automotive, aerospace and architecture segments. Also on the agenda will be cross-industry thematic blocks emphasising manufacturing and production technologies such as the joining and combining of different materials.
