WE DEVELOP SAFE PRODUCTS THROUGH SAFE PROCESSES. LIGHT. SAFE. DIGITAL.
Sustainable mobility and lightweight construction have been the focus of the Fraunhofer LBF for more than 80 years. In that time the institute has amassed expertise in SHM, ice protection, the research and development of new materials, as well as the testing of components such as wheels, batteries and doors. In addition to many years of experience in operating load measurements and collective creation, the experts at Fraunhofer LBF also offer consulting services for digital product development (e.g. digital twins).
The aviation sector is currently facing new R&D challenges, such as intelligent energy recovery strategies, functionally integrated or systemic lightweight design concepts, and production process monitoring. Fraunhofer LBF is an expert research partner for the development of innovative solutions for customer-specific problems faced by aircraft manufacturers, manufacturers of propulsion systems, aircraft electronics and landing systems, as well as for suppliers from various fields for the upstream stages.
