The prerequisite for innovation and an important driver of growth is effective and efficient development. In interdisciplinary teams, we work on innovative tools, processes and products for a sustainable future. With lightweight solutions for the automotive industry, we secure our long-term business success. We pursue a holistic approach from brainstorming to product launch together with our customers.
Case Study „lightweight battery concept“
In collaboration with our partner TGM Lightweight Solutions and National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) we developed a LiFePO4 battery demonstrator project.
In a hypothetical scenario we screened the vehicle for weight saving opportunities and derived a qualified solution concept. Focus was to estimate the cost for manufacturing and forecast the primary lightweight cost.
Our main task was the co-development of a lightweight starter battery housing and the potential industrialization.
