The purpose of alloy development is to optimize lightweight materials in terms of their requirements profile or to realize new fields of application. The cornerstones are process experience, the continual development of material characterization and the numerical simulation of phase transformations on a thermodynamic and thermokinetic basis.

Due to several years' experience with aluminum and magnesium alloys and their processing, the AIT is able to draw on a large pool of knowledge in the field of alloy development. Its industry-based infrastructure enables the AITto verify alloy development safely and easily and to make proposals for optimization. This allows the results to be promptly channeled into production and the customer to reap the benefits.
