New materials and production techniques are a key to sustainable mobility, as they allow a resource-efficient production of car bodies or drive systems. These key technologies for the automotive construction of the future are developed at the research campus “Open Hybrid LabFactory – material development and production technology for economic and multi-functional lightweight construction” in Wolfsburg. The focus is on vehicle segments from series production, as they provide the greatest potential for the economic handling of finite resources. In the context of the Open Hybrid LabFactory three institutes of the TU Braunschweig (the IK, the IWF, the ifs) investigate new production technologies within the framework of publicly sponsored projects, with
the aim of realising the “democratized lightweight construction” for series production. A selection of projects is listed in the following:
The BMBF project ProVor, for instance, deals with the process chain for the prefabrication of hybrid semifinished products by functionally integrated handling devices. In the IWF, mechanical processing methods, such as drilling and punching, are investigated for FVK metal hybrids and the occurring damage mechanisms by FEM modelling. In the project TR Closed Box, innovative welding procedures are developed for fibrereinforced thermo-plastics. The project MuliMaK 2 deals with the development of optimized automotive part concepts for large scale production in accordance with ecological aspects.
