The automotive industry is in a state of upheaval. The resulting challenges are numerous. One answer is lightweight design, since making weight savings has a major impact on fuel consumption. This reduces fleet consumption and increases competitiveness. Moreover, this saving of resources also reduces the CO2 footprint of each vehicle. This will make your target market happy. With us, you’ll realise lightweight design in the best possible way, because we have developed innovative solutions for your challenges.
Our formula for success in inspiring solutions is an experienced team that develops and optimises components with passion and curiosity, using the latest design and simulation tools and methods.
We do lightweight design under cost pressure.
Thanks to our many years of expertise in lightweight design, we have a very high level of understanding of how components or even entire systems can be made lighter with the help of composites. Thanks to our experience from other industries such as shipbuilding, wind energy and aerospace engineering, we can offer you solutions for a wide range of challenges.
We support you throughout the entire realisation process – from conceptual design, to simulation and optimisation, to production planning, while maintaining quality standards.
This approach not only reduces your material and process costs, it also ensures the successful production of your lightweight components - in accordance with the quality requirements.
We’ll find the last gram.
Thanks to our experience gained from over 150 lightweight design projects, we know how to find and exploit potential for weight savings. For component optimisation along the entire value chain, we use in-house, high-end simulation tools such as Ansys Mechanical & LS-DYNA or Altair HyperMesh & OptiStruct. To achieve the best possible results, we not only apply our simulation expertise and leverage analysis automation, we also develop our own calculation tools to find the best solution for you.
This is how we optimise your component in terms of weight, stiffness or strength, thereby making the desired resource savings possible while maintaining quality and reducing testing and production costs.
With us, it is really fast and safe.
In addition to our many years of expertise in lightweight design and innovative component optimisation, our professional handling of your project makes an important contribution to its quick and successful fulfillment. We achieve this by maintaining close and regular communication with you in order to react quickly and flexibly to your wishes and offer solutions.
Speed and quality are also made possible by our 10-strong team, which is equipped with all the necessary in-house resources. We are constantly developing – we do not just apply or implement state-of-the-art digital engineering, we also further develop it, meaning that unique simulation/calculation tools are available. All of this leads to short development cycles and maximum component safety for you, while adhering to the budget framework defined by you.

Development & Calculation Engineer
Cool that my component improves the driving pleasure of a super sports car.
Developing the rear wing of a supercar was an exciting and challenging task for me as I had lots of freedom to set up the complex development process: In the course of the project, I determined the optimal layup of the fibre composite structure in more than ten iterations.
