Company description:

As a leading research facility in the field of lightweight system construction, the institute develops and tests new technologies for an emission-free tomorrow.

Our research portfolio includes high-performance materials, analysis methods for the entire life cycle, characteristic value-based functional lightweight designs, efficient manufacturing processes for fibre composite structures on an industrial scale and the end-to-end digitalization of the entire process chain.

Adaptronics opens up opportunities to provide lightweight structures with additional capabilities. For example, CFRP structures can be enabled to change their shape, actively reduce vibrations, reduce sound radiation from the vibrating structure or diagnose their own condition using materials and technologies from adaptronics.
