3D Light Trans
Our missionThe 3D-LightTrans low-cost manufacturing chain will make textile reinforced composites affordable for mass production of components, fulfilling increasing requirements on performance, light weight and added value of the final product in all market sectors.

Environmental impact

3D-LightTrans equipment and solutions do not only support extremely low cost manufacturing, but also decrease the impact to the environment and contribute to sustainability. In the first place, 3D-LightTrans supports the use of more abundant materials like plastics in substitution of metals, as well as less energy intensive manufacturing processes and decreased logistic efforts in the supply chain.

 

3D-shaped, multilayered products also offer the possibility to improve the strength and reduce the weight of structural parts due to the tailored properties and to the low density of polymer composites in comparison with other materials, like steel. Consequently, this supports the current trend in the automotive sector to enable CO2 emission reductions through lighter weight vehicle structures

 

The society will thus profit from the reduced use of raw materials and energy as well as enhanced lifetime of industrial products, which are the outcomes of the lifecycle approach. Further on, the reduced CO2 emissions will provide sustainable mobility maintaining the high quality of life of EU citizens.
