Company profile

The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is Austrias largest non-university research institute. As a subsidiary of AIT LKR Leichtmetallkompetenzzentrum Ranshofen GmbH forms the Business Unit Light Metals Technologies Ranshofen in the AIT Center for Low-Emission Transport. The business focus is centered around new aluminium and magnesium alloys and their application with steel parts and composites on vehicles. When developing lightweight components, one of the main challenges lies in the ability to reduce weight while also ensuring passenger safety during a crash.

The use of lightweight materials is one of the fastest growing trends in the automotive industry, which is reflected in the increased use of this technology in vehicle design. The application of light metals instead of steel means a huge reduction in weight, which in Turn has a positive effect on the energy efficiency and CO2 emissions of vehicles.
