The driving dynamics of a vehicle are essentially defined by the properties of its suspension: in road vehicles, the suspension plays a key role in determining the driving experience – in motorsport, it is decisive for victory or defeat. The suspension tuning is therefore of utmost importance. The demands on suspension development are growing, particularly in times of increased cost pressure and ever shorter development cycles. With a new innovative vertical dynamics test rig, suspension specialist thyssenkrupp Bilstein is opening up new and urgently needed opportunities for suspension analysis and development for its partners – automotive manufacturers and racing teams.
Without the components produced by thyssenkrupp Presta AG in the cold forging process, nothing would work for many car manufacturers. Today, the "Coldforging" business unit contributes significantly to the successful business of thyssenkrupp Steering.
Martin Graf works as a software engineer at thyssenkrupp Steering in Liechtenstein. The area of responsibility that Martin Graf and his team work on is very extensive, ranging from pre-development projects and design studies to series development and international implementation.
Peter Gliga has started his career at thyssenkrupp as an expert for electric/electronic (E/E) steering systems. He shared with us how he and his team at thyssenkrupp Steering are influencing the future of the automotive industry and how a robot tournament allowed him to get his foot in the door and join the corporate family.
The automotive industry is still one of the most exciting sectors for young engineers. This is also the case for Nikolett Marton from Hungary. Today she enjoys a challenging but fulfilling job where she even gets to be an inventor.
