The VDMA’s Working Group Hybrid Lightweight Technologies, Frankfurt/Germany, deals with production processes of hybrid lightweight components by using fiber-reinforced composites and metals. In 25 technology profiles, members of the working group have summarized the current status of production and joining processes in hybrid lightweight construction.
The guide gives a quick overview of the established processes. Every technology is summarized in a short profile and explained using a schematic diagram with the processes’ basic conditions and parameters as well as their limitations of use. They are supplemented by specifications on possible material combinations, recyclability and application examples.
