Sustainability demands materials and energy saving. As a consequence light weight engineered products are a must. This paper approaches the possibility to substitute heavy weight metal design by multi-material light weight design considering polymeric materials and employing manufacturing techniques which are optimal adapted to the materials, e.g. assembly injection moulding. The needed necessary steps for such a development are described and the conceivable result is discussed exemplarily with regard to a novel and weight saving pump housing construction.
