The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) of RWTH Aachen University was established in 2012.

The founders are Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Hopmann, head of the Institute of Plastic Processing (IKV), and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Brecher, ordinary Professor at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University as well as Director of the Department for Production Machines at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT.

At the AZL Development Center at the Campus Melaten of RWTH Aachen University continuous process chains will be investigated and implemented in collaboration with the partner institutes. This enables a mass production of lightweight components, especially multi-material systems.
