Lightweight Engineering

With a extensive range of expertise and capabilities, we provide a holistic approach to Lightweight Engineering.

We support you at all stages of your product's development and evolution to create parts with optimal weight.

Driving the Future: Unleashing the Potential of Lightweight Engineering in E-Mobility Excellence

In the dynamically evolving e-mobility landscape, we recognise the vital importance of lightweighting. Our expertise extends to proactive and accurate mass control, a critical aspect in achieving not only reduced weight, but also a wide range of benefits for electric vehicles. The adoption of lightweight materials and creative design strategies not only improves energy efficiency but also plays a central role in extending the range of electric vehicles.

Proactive and precise mass monitoring are integral to achieving optimized vehicle mass, ensuring a harmonious design that seamlessly integrates efficiency with top-tier performance. In the pursuit of Lightweight Engineering,

From concept to vehicle study to production-ready product. Shape the future of mobility with RLE! We support you with:

  • Optimisation of vehicle mass
  • Reduction of mass through design efficiency and material selection
  • Benchmarking of competitor vehicle and system masses
  • Determination of vehicle mass and CoG forecast during the development phase
  • Certification of vehicle mass at the end of development

Our services and solutions for design and development with a focus on weight optimisation and lightweight design.


Lightweight Manufacturing

We improve your components by using bonded blanks or patchwork techniques that strategically combine materials to optimise weight distribution, promoting improved performance and efficiency.



We guide you in your choice of materials – from high-strength steel, aluminum, titanium and  magnesium to advanced composites – to ensure the optimum lightweight solutions for precision and performance.


Concept Lightweight Construction

We blend inventive ideas, advanced materials, and innovative structures, placing conceptual creativity at the forefront for unmatched efficiency and sustainable mobility solutions in vehicle design.
