The goal of the LightMe Project is to create an open, innovative ecosystem aimed at increasing the scale of production processes of composites based on light metal alloys (aluminum, magnesium and titanium).

As part of the project, Łukasiewicz – PIT will develop a technology for the production of Ti-SiC powder plain bearing sleeves using the SPS method and profiles of composite AA7075 alloy matrix reinforced with B4C boron carbide particles using the SPS-KOBO method.
