SuPLIGHT: Sustainable and Efficient Production of Lightweight Solutions

Rationale:
– Lightweight component and solutions increasingly important
– Aluminium have large potentials for dramatic weight reduction

Goals:

  • New industrial models for sustainable lightweight solutions
  • 75% recycling in high-end structural components
  • Product and process optimisation with up to 50% increased weight/performance ratio
  • Bridge from atomic-scale to continuum FEM simulations
  • Novel business models with a holistic life cycle view and higher reactivity to customer

IMS Activities:

  • Development of community and definition of targeted actions
  • International collaboration workshops
  • Industrial Test pilots

Participants:

  • EPFL
  • NEMAK
  • SINTEF
  • KITECH
  • CUPRUM
