Lightweight construction is a key technology. Industrial enterprises world-wide are striving to reduce the weight and improve the quality of their products. Coupled with innovative design, new lightweight materials save energy and materials, reduce CO2 emissions, while at the same time enhancing the robustness and efficiency of the product. Smart, lightweight systems are acquiring ever greater importance throughout industry – in the automotive sector, in mechanical and plant engineering, and in the energy sector.
Less weight - better performance: intelligent lightweight construction systems for a reduction of energy and material requirements.
Integrated Lightweight Plaza
Why not benefit from the experiences of other sectors? Successful lightweight engineering solutions depend on interdisciplinary collaboration in materials, design and construction, and manufacturing technologies. The Integrated Lightweight Plaza is the ideal place for your highlight exhibits, project studies and live demonstrations. A Speakers' Corner at the Integrated Lightweight Plaza hosts talks on lightweight construction technologies for a wide range of sectors.
Speakers‘ Corner - Call for Papers
In the Speakers' Corner at the heart of the Integrated Lightweight Plaza, the subject of lightweight construction will be examined in all its facets across all industries and the entire spectrum of modern lightweight construction will be presented: from lightweight material construction to lightweight construction and innovative joining techniques. In short presentations, speakers from industry and research will present their developments, products and research results in a compact and precise manner.
Lightweight construction summit with Federal Economics Minister Peter Altmaier
The Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology has invited visitors to the first lightweight construction summit at HANNOVER MESSE 2019 - and the interest could not have been greater. With more than 350 decision-makers from industry, politics and research, the 1st Lightweighting Summit was a successful premiere. Federal Economics Minister Peter Altmaier called lightweight construction a game changer technology whose full potential cannot yet be estimated.
Preparations are currently underway for the continuation of the Summit as part of HANNOVER MESSE 2020.
