Lightweight building materials are currently placed at a premium due to restrictions in fuel consumption and resources, and this collection of research papers on small batch production systems for lightweight space frame structures stresses the need for more innovations during the manufacturing process. Editors Weinert (machining technology, Technische U. Dortmund, Germany), Fleischer (production science, U. Karlsruhe, Germany), Tekkaya (forming technology and lightweight construction, Technische U. Dortmund, Germany), Zah (industrial management, Technische U. Munchen) and Schikorra (forming technology and lightweight construction, Technische U. Dortmund, Germany) have collected papers describing the lightweight manufacturing techniques such as cutting on the fly, five-axis machining, hybrid laser welding, high pressure tube forming and three- dimensional rounding during extrusion. These highly technical papers are aimed at materials science engineers, technicians and researchers in the field.
