We always take an integrated approach to developing structures – because we not only look at design but also at the functional demands placed on the new product, such as stiffness, crash safety and requirements relating to NVH. This approach significantly sets us apart from the competition because our innovations and development processes always focus on the entire vehicle. At the moment, we are particularly concentrating our efforts on the subject of lightweight construction.
We are consistently expanding our expertise in this field in numerous internal projects – with our experts examining the properties of CFRP for potential applications in vehicle concepts, as well as aspects relating to simulation, design and testing. This is where we work with specialized partners and channel our findings directly into current client projects.
