Researchteam Material Based Design
APA-Science visited the LKR Ranshofen and was impressed by the numerous light metal innovations. The highlight was the demonstration of the welding torch in the new Additive Manufacturing Laboratory.
WAAM research at LKR: the new smart wire production route
In LKR's own wire production route, small quantities of melt are first cast into bolts after alloy development, which are then formed into individual wires in the company's own extrusion press, joined and wound up in a cleaned condition.
LKR researches to advance light metals for future industrial applications.
The LKR research area „Material-based structural design“ is developing special alloy filler wires, protope components and component systems with the maximum mechanical performance and high potential for lightweight design and construction using light metal materials.
TOMORROW TODAY 02/2018
In mid-June, the Ranshofener Leichtmetalltage light alloys conference tookplace for the 10th time in Linz.
"We’re on the right path, but we haven’t reached our goal yet!"
The TRA (Transport Research Arena) 2018, the largest European transport research and technology conference, will take place this year in Vienna for the first time and will be addressing future development trends. AIT is responsible for the contents.
Light metal alloys will play an even bigger role in industrial manufacturing in the future.
