Hannover Messe 2019: Lightweight design

Smart solutions to join carbon fiber reinforced plastics and metal

Research News / 1.3.2019

The engineering of lightweight vehicles requires manufacturers to combine functional metal components with lightweight, highly durable carbon fiber reinforced plastics. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a variety of solutions for joining such disparate materials – and will be showcasing their technology at this year’s Hannover Messe on April 1-5, 2019 using an e-scooter demonstrator (Hall 17, Booth C24).
