Our objectives

The challenge of reducing CO2 emissions is more and more becoming the driving force behind the development of lightweight structures in engineering, automotive and aerospace
industries. Environmental aspects and economic efficiency are calling for a combination of new technologies and smart material systems.

JOINING TECHNOLOGIES FOR AFFORDABLE LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTIONS IN LARGE-SCALE PRODUCTION!
FÜKOMP_hybrid offers intelligent solutions in terms of both materials and technologies for establishing lightweight materials in large-scale production.

JOINING WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL MATERIAL INPUT!
This also means generating integrative component solutions that will render expensive and material-intensive joining technologies unnecessary or reduce the number of assembly steps.

THE OVERALL SYSTEM IS IMPORTANT!
Successfully applying new lightweight materials requires a
thorough re-thinking in the overall system of “material – structure -process – function”. This is the reason why our network does not only consider the joining process by itself, but starts out by developing new material systems with a maximum integration of functions.

 

I. Material

  • targeted selection of the suitable material mix with regard to the physical/technical characteristic values ​​of the component to be achieved AND the joining of technical questions from the very beginning of the development

II. Structure

  • development of integrative building solutions while reducing the technically necessary steps by means of targeted functional and component integration

III. Process

  • Development of intelligent and, above all, cost-effective joining technology solutions:
    • with short cycle times,
    • with high reproducibility
    • with high adaptivity (plug&join) for subsequent (joining) processes
    • without additional material
