KraussMaffei advances the development of new hybrid materials and processes in collaboration with the Dresden University of Technology.

Hybrid processes and materials made of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) and metal for the automotive lightweight construction of tomorrow are the focus of the LEIKA research project, which KraussMaffei is advancing in collaboration with the Institute for Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology at Dresden University of Technology and other partners from industry and research academia. A new lab system at the Institute for Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology stands at the center of the development work. This system allows FRP-metal hybrid materials to be formed and back injected in one step.
