Your engineering partner for

bionic lightweight design

We merge design, technology and functionality

into holistic lightweight solutions.

Shaping the future of lightweight products

Lightbau Engineering develops customized and highly efficient lightweight components across industries using disruptive approaches. We think “additive” from the outset, break down the limitations in product design and use the innovative power of bionics to minimize the material usage. In doing so, we support our customers along the entire engineering process – from the idea to the finished product.

Experience bionics in lightweight optimization

Our simulation-based process chain can be flexibly adapted to your requirements and optimization goals. Geometries tailored to the application are created in several iteration loops. The highly efficient bionic design is characterized by high performance with minimal material usage. Thus, a direct dependency between material application and functionality of the component is created.
