HybridRTM terms a publicly funded project, which aims at the development of a processing technique for manufacturing of lightweight structural components from hybrid materials. In particular, components involving metal as well as fibre-reinforced polymer composite materials are manufactured in a single processing step by means of the resin transfer moulding (RTM) technique. Project activities include material development and characterization, modelling of thermally induced residual stresses, process simulation, mould development as well as model-based process control in order to ensure consistently high component quality. This paper outlines the fundamental idea of the project and summarizes the most important results gained during the first two years of project activities.
