DLR Center for Lightweight Production Technology in Augsburg

The building complex of the Center for Lightweight Construction Technology (ZLP) at the Augsburg location was opened in May 2013. In the ZLP, the DLR Institute of Structures and Design in Stuttgart cooperates with the DLR Institute of Composite Structures and Adaptive Systems in Braunschweig and the DLR Robotics and Mechatronics Centre in Oberpfaffenhofen.

Resistance welding – The Institute at JEC World 2019 in Paris

Since the welding process has a high automation potential, it is well suited for efficient series production. In addition to resistance welding (picture), ultrasonic welding is currently being industrialized as a suitable joining technique at the Institute of Structures and Construction Technology.

The research activities in the Institute of Structures and Design are concerned with the development and implementation of composite materials with polymer and ceramic matrix in innovative, high performance structures. The developments are not only for aeronautics and aerospace applications, but also for general technical applications within alternative energy technologies, transportation and mechanical engineering. Design and construction principles are hereby developed and validated, which under the given boundary conditions of the application, offer economical solutions with high reliability.
