ThyssenKrupp Magazine themed around materials
The new issue of the ThyssenKrupp Magazine takes readers on a journey through the world of industrial materials. For a leading technology group like ThyssenKrupp, working with materials and tailoring them to customers` needs has always been a core capability.
With its vast potential, steel continues to be the number-one industrial material. For the automotive industry, for example, the engineers at ThyssenKrupp have succeeded in building an extremely light body known as the "NewSteelBody"; another innovation is the newly designed "assembled camshaft" offering an enormous weight saving. And then there is the ever expanding range of stainless steels. Here, too, ThyssenKrupp is thinking the future of the material - with applications in the home, in food production, construction and even in the high-speed sport of bobsleighing.
Magnesium is another material undergoing development at ThyssenKrupp, although research into potential applications is still in its infancy. However, with new vacuum technology materials could be developed to meet the highest demands of the aerospace industry.
The Magazine takes an in-depth look at the fascinating world of ThyssenKrupp. It can be ordered from the Company`s internet website under "Publications".
