• Lightweight Engineering

    Lightweight engineering through a combination of alternative lightweight materials, novel production processes and optimised geometries.

  • Composite Engineering

    Optimally using the tensile strength and stiffness of the fibers by utilising fiber plasement. 

  • Design for Additive Manufacturing

  • Topology Optimisation

    Creating lightweight components and structures by adapting the geometry using generative design tools such as Topology Optimisation.

Lightweight Solutions

Fransiscó is an Engineering & Design company passionate about lightweight engineering. We design & develop lightweight products and structures for clients in automotive, motorsport, aerospace, marine and industrial.

Why lightweight

Lightweight products are more efficient, perform better, result in a higher throughput and lower operating cost. Furthermore, by applying lightweight techniques, less material is used, saving on valuable resources. Our focus is on reducing weight, increasing functionality & performance while keeping cost on target.

The route towards lightweight

Lightweight can be achieved by changing the material, using novel manufacturing processes, changing the geometry or developing a total new concept:

  • Lightweight concept development
  • Design for composites
  • Design for Additive Manufacturing
  • Topology optimisation studies
  • FEA consultancy

Being at the leading edge of technology is in our DNA. A combination of practical hands-on experience and analytical knowhow makes Fransiscó the desired development partner for your challenging projects. Please contact us for more information.
