    • WeightWorks engineering – Lightweight Construction Development and Products for Motorsports

      WeightWorks Engineering from Allensbach on Lake Constance has dedicated itself to lightweight construction and, in addition to tailor-made vehicle components made of fibre-reinforced composites, also offers solutions for all aspects of power supply.

      With "RapidVacMold", WeightWorks engineering has developed a mould making process with which negative moulds can be produced quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly and almost any initial mould made of forged, cast or plastic can be copied in fibre composite.
      The process can be used to produce both (very) small series and prototypes. In addition, WeightWorks Engineering examines how its customers' products can be replaced by lightweight fiber composite components to optimize their efficiency and performance.
      WeightWorks Engineering also sees itself as a development service provider. The company develops ideas, plans processes from the first sketch to the finished component and advises companies on the economic use of CFRP components.  
      In the field of engineering, WeightWorks Engineering develops products, creates simulations and scans any geometry (2D / 3D scan). The product portfolio also includes the construction of prototypes and master models using 3D printing and CNC machines.
