Our visitors will experience...


forward-looking approach

The development of lightweight material systems will go more on individual material groups and be an optimal configuration of different material components in future. The Lightweight Technologies Forum deals with current and future issues of hybrid lightweight construction. 


Combining an exhibition and a presentation forum, the event will serve as the cross-material interface between metal and fibre-reinforced composite technologies in structural components and offers product presentations, knowledge sharing and networking.

practical orientation

In several application-focussed modules, experts will present their real-world experiences with issues revolving around material composites in the automotive, aerospace and architecture segments. Also on the agenda will be cross-industry thematic blocks emphasising manufacturing and production technologies such as the joining and combining of different materials.

Lightweight Technologies Forum Partners

Automobil Industrie/Vogel Business Media GmbH & Co. KG
AVK - Industrievereinigung Verstärkte Kunststoffe e. V. - Federation of Reinforced Plastics
 AZL - Aachener Zentrum für integrativen Leichtbau

The existing partner network of the COMPOSITES EUROPE and ALUMINIUM trade fairs, consisting of leading organizations and associations of the lightweight industry, supports the exchange of information and the development actively with their expertise.
