Lightweight construction is the key to success. Due to the transformation of the drive system
and the requirements of the legislators to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the car body in particular offers opportunities to save weight. This means that new lightweight construction concepts and the combination of materials and processes are becoming increasingly important. New processes such as mega-casting or giga-casting offer opportunities to revolutionise the entire production of automobiles. Huge die-casting machines have been moving into the factories primarily of car manufacturers for some time, replacing entire production lines. The goal: to replace as many parts as possible with one large cast die-cast part.
