Field of innovation: Lightweight construction

Lightweight construction is a technique, which minimizes the weight of parts.


Lightweight construction aims to save weight through clever engineering. Reasons might be the reduction of cost, of weight and/or achievement of a special design. Other than with metal replacement, the target is not to substitute metal with plastic in order to reduce weight, but to create a lighter plastic part with the same functionality through a smarter design / construction.
