Alexander Busse from the automotive research company Forschungsgesellschaft für Kraftfahrwesen (fka) in Aachen presents the Lightweight Forging project and his work in a video.

One of the aspects under analysis is the lightweight design potential of forged components in the powertrain and chassis of a hybrid car – a vehicle type which will become increasingly important over the next few years up to the complete electrification of passenger cars. Furthermore, an additional focal point will be the transmission and powertrain with the drive shaft and differential of a heavy commercial vehicle (truck).
