Lightweight construction has evolved to become the innovation driver of the future and is securing clear competitive advantages across sectors. Today, standardised solutions for numerous applications in lightweight construction are already available, whereby innovative tool solutions are scarce commodities. The lightweight construction growth market is therefore perhaps the most significant catalyst of innovation for manufacturers of precision tools in the coming years. We need to rethink established tool solutions for the classic areas of steel and aluminium machining, and implement new, innovative solutions. KOMET's objective here is to achieve a high level of process reliability and stability in the interests of the customer. Even more so than with conventional materials, the following applies for lightweight construction: The solution that is optimal for the application must be developed and implemented as an economically feasible tool concept.
