Lightweight Industrial Structures

Since the mid-20th century, the aerospace industry played a major role in the development of lightweight materials and structures. The need to reduce the weight of aircraft in order to increase fuel efficiency led to the development of materials such as carbon fiber composites, which are now widely used in a range of industries.

Today, the lightweight industry encompasses a wide range of sectors including automotive, aerospace, construction, and consumer products. Advancements in materials science, manufacturing processes, and design technologies continue to drive innovation in this field, with a focus on creating lighter and more efficient products that meet the demands of a rapidly changing global economy.

With more than 40 years of experience in this sector, Broetje-Automation provides a wide range of products for industrial, automated production and assembly of light weight structures.
