The Lightweight Engineering Campus: In addition to an office complex, it also comprises three buildings equipped with an extensive range of specialist manufacturing and testing facilities:
- The Lightweight Innovation Centre (LIZ) – Numerous machines used for static, dynamic and highly dynamic material and component testing
- Polymer Application Centre (KAZ) – State-of-the-art preform and infusion technology
- Process Development Centre (PEZ) – Demonstration and refinement of fully automated processes integrated into the prototypical manufacturing of fibre-composite structures at series-compatible cycle times
The range of machines and systems available at the Lightweight Engineering Campus is unique within Germany and throughout Europe. All technologies required for the manufacturing of fibre-composite structures can be demonstrated using industrial or near-industrial processes.
