Lightweight design from Lusatia: A key technology with a bright future

Lusatia has become a hot spot for lightweight design, now home to both companies and research institutes. Both benefit from the synergies that Brandenburg creates. In the video, Dr. Kai Winkelmann from SMT describes the research goals pursued by the company together with its partners, such as, for example, the Panta Rhei.

Leichtbau – wie viel Hightech in Bushaltestellen steckt

Lightweight design – high-tech bus stops

Team Tejbrant designs and builds bus stops. Ordinary and yet truly special constructions. Why are aluminium profiles increasingly replacing steel? Boards made out of aluminium honeycombs and metal foams are technologies of the future, and are already being used today.

Leichtbau – in der Luftfahrt zählt jedes Gramm

Lightweight design – every gram counts in the aviation sector

The company KAPI Electronics manufactures flight recorders and safety systems for small aircrafts on-site at the airport grounds in Eberswalde. The use of lightweight design fabrics in the aviation sector is self-explanatory—it’s easier to fly with less weight. Some of the flight recorder housings have been manufactured by 3D printers.

Leichtbau – im Tiefbau

Lightweight design – in civil engineering

In cooperation with the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, the company LKT has developed the Flexreha procedure. This procedure is used for the renovation of crumbling and damaged concrete shafts; it utilises composite materials and can be used at any time of the year.
