Lightweight design is one of the major topics for mobility, e.g. the automotive industry. The combination of different materials often leads to optimum solutions in terms of mechanical properties, costs, processability and weight. Here plastic/metal hybrid is a successful and established technology. Replacement of metal sheets by thermoplastic composites offers additional advantages concerning weight reduction and functional integration. The development of several applications is shown. A holistic development approach including simulation capabilities leads to optimized part performance. Finally an outlook on customized composites and overmold material is given.
