Lightweight construction with Formula 1 technology: Efficiency and innovation for outstanding products
When it comes to making something more efficient, faster and lighter, there is no way around Formula 1 know-how. Fiber composites such as CFRP (carbon fiber-reinforced plastic) and the combination of the latest materials shape our everyday lives and also enable you to optimize your product through innovative lightweight design.
Read on to learn more about our professional services in lightweight construction with Formula 1 technology and discover the benefits of these revolutionary approaches.
Efficiency and weight reduction through fiber composites
The use of fiber composites such as CFRP is a key component of lightweight design with Formula 1 technology. These materials offer exceptional strength, while being lightweight. CFRP consists of carbon fibers embedded in a plastic matrix.
By using CFRP, products can be made significantly lighter without sacrificing strength. This leads to improved efficiency, energy savings and performance optimization.
Innovative material combinations
Formula 1 technology has also led to advanced material combinations that can be used in lightweight construction. By combining different materials such as metals, plastics and composites, optimal properties such as strength, stiffness, and corrosion resistance can be achieved. These innovative combinations open up new possibilities for the design and optimization of products in various industries.
Weight reduction and energy efficiency
Weight reduction is a key aspect of lightweight design. By using lighter materials and optimized design methods, products can save a considerable amount of weight. This has a positive impact on energy efficiency, as less energy is required for transport and operation. Moreover, weight reduction enables better acceleration, maneuverability, and handling of products in various applications.
High strength and reliability
Although light weighting aims to reduce weight, it does not mean that the strength and reliability of products are compromised. On the contrary, Formula 1 technology has led to innovative design methods that ensure high strength and rigidity without sacrificing lightness. By using simulation techniques and advanced analysis methods, we can determine the optimal structure and material distribution to ensure high strength and reliability of products.

for wheelchair athletes
We were commissioned to develop the world’s fastest wheelchair for the Olympics in Tokyo. We used state-of-the-art CFD simulations, wind tunnel tests, 3D printing in plastic and metal as well as the latest knowledge in carbon production to build the OT FOXX M1 with which Marcel Hug won four Olympic gold medals.To the story
