Welcome to Working Group Hybrid Lightweight Technologies
With the formation of the Working Group Hybrid Lightweight Technologies the VDMA is engaging with a promising field of technology. Multi-material design sees materials increasingly being combined in lightweight applications. The 180 VDMA member firms in the former Composite Technology Forum will therefore also concern themselves with composite-metal bonding. The aim of the Working Group is to match the VDMA’s existing machinery manufacturing skills in lightweight construction, which are not confined to any particular material, with the needs of customer industries. User and supplier industries and research institutes active in the field are therefore also invited to take part in this important exchange.
