Lightweighting excellence programme

The Lightweighting Excellence Programme (LX) consortium is seeking to enhance capability within the UK automotive supply chain to manufacture composite components in medium to high volumes, at affordable costs, by connecting the key functions of material supply, design and manufacturing.

The LX Programme is a strategic co-operation led by Sigmatex and supported by Axillium Research, in partnership with Cranfield University, Engenuity, Expert Tooling & Automation, Granta Design, Group Rhodes, LMAT, Surface Generation, Tilsatec, Liberty Advanced Composites and Sheffield AMRC.

Three UK-based automotive OEMs – Bentley Motors Limited, Emerald Automotive LLC and Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd – are working closely with the LX partners on the provision of three technical use cases with realistic commercial potential.
