Close Bonding with Hybrid Technology

Another key issue at Weber: Plastics-metal hybrid technology as an alternative to metal alone. Whereas in practice, metals and plastics in traditional design are often in competition with each other, hybrid technology combines the advantages of both materials with the respective processing systems.

The development of load-bearing, multifunctional plastics-metal hybrid structures opens up new types of design possibilities. Savings in costs and in weight are excellent arguments for innovative hybrid technology from Weber. One successful example is the steel-plastics roof frame developed by Weber for the Audi A6.
