CHEMNITZ UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOL., DEP. LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURE

The scientific work is focused on the development and investigation of integrated plastic processing technologies for the resource-efficient manufacturing of lightweight structures and systems. In order to produce complex, highly integrated, competitive parts, originally separated technologies in varying thermoplastic and thermoset based processes are merged together. Numerous inventions of highly loaded hybrid components, active lightweight structures and structural systems with natural fibres emphasise the competences of the SLK. Main fields of research are: green technologies for sustainable environmentally-friendly solutions, computation and design of fibre-reinforced structures, integrated lightweight technologies for complex hybrid components, coupling of polymer based processes for energy-efficient production technologies, manufacturing cells and machines for metal-plastic devices, process chains for manufacturing parts with renewable primary products and recycled materials.
