5th Colloquium on Production Technology: 10th anniversary of ZLP Augsburg

The Center for Lightweight-Construction-Technology (ZLP) in Augsburg celebrates its birthday! 10 years ago, the first DLR researchers began their work in Augsburg. In cooperation with many partners, DLR created a research facility that is unique in Europe, with a robot platform only available in Augsburg. Today, almost 60 employees and students are shaping the future of automated lightweight production at ZLP on the grounds of the Augsburg Innovation Park. At the 5th Production Technology Colloquium on 15 May 2019, they will give exciting insights into their current research topics.
