High-performance high-tech materials
Leitz has the right solution for every challenge
The rapidly growing need for mobility worldwide has a magnetic effect on new material qualities and attracts new applications. This new dynamism is reflected in high volume growth in products and lightweight materials.
Lightweight and composite materials are the winners due to their favorable ratio of weight to strength.
Lightweight, future-oriented materials
Components made of fibre-reinforced materials, such as CFRP or GFRP, are cost-intensive to manufacture compared with metal components of the same load-bearing capacity. Therefore, they are mainly used in areas where their advantages (usually weight savings) result in at least a high cost saving potential. In order not to negatively influence this potential through costly machining, tool solutions are required that are specially designed to optimize processes in terms of efficiency and productivity.
