Steel in everyday life

What does steel have to do with art, good wine and agriculture?

Over Steel and Stone: Hiking Season in Bavaria

Many natural phenomena are only accessible thanks to the highest engineering skills. One example is the Höllentalklamm, which can be visited again thanks to a steel bridge from thyssenkrupp.

Modular Research Platform: From good to even better

thyssenkrupp's valuable tool Modular Research Platform (MRP) experiences a directed progression.

Smart Helmet Display: a trip computer for a motorcycle helmet

What motorbikes lack, thought 18-year-old Johannes Lodahl, is the kind of trip computer that is standard in cars. So without further ado he set about developing a system of his own. With the support of thyssenkrupp, he created the “Smart Helmet Display” – a trip computer for motorcycle helmets.

Driving the digital transformation

Tobias Eckhoff's goal: making work easier for his colleagues through jointly developed digital solutions.

TUM Boring – A tunnel for Musk

Beat The Snail – That is Elon Musk's challenge. 60 TU Munich students are willing to accept it.

Slewing Bearings in Tunnel Boring Machines – Keeping the World Turning

Slewing bearings are used in machines where movement and drive need to interact – for example, in the construction of tunnels.

Underground giants: our six most impressive tunnel systems

Underground streets, train connections and metro lines – gigantic tunnels have to be built for that. Worldwide, tunnel boring machines equipped with thyssenkrupp rothe erde® high-performance components come into action.

A European journey weighing several tons: From the blank to the large-diameter antifriction bearing

It's a long way from a solid piece of steel to a fully functional slewing bearing. Because the production journey begins with a cylindrical steel strand and finally ends at thyssenkrupp rothe erde as a ready-to-use centerpiece of various applications.

Pimp my kart: thyssenkrupp students develop hybrid kart

The idea of a hybrid upgrade kit as a university project comes to life after thyssenkrupp students visit a go-karting place.

Silence as strength: Magnetic bearings for computed tomography

The background noise of a computed tomography is often unpleasant. A new magnetic bearing provides relief.

Probably the most advanced skateboard in the world – made by thyssenkrupp!

For an apprenticeship project at thyssenkrupp Camshafts in Ilsenburg, the apprentices Sarah Vogel and Max Jäger developed a skateboard equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Technical know-how and pioneering spirit: engineer Patrick Tlauka embodies both

Patrick Tlauka, project engineer at thyssenkrupp Steel, is working with his team on the selectrify® project

#roadtripsweden: The man with foresight

In March 2019,18 of our colleagues set off for the far north of Sweden. Their goal? Find out whether our automotive components can withstand extreme conditions. Exactly where major car manufacturers test their vehicles: on snow and ice.

TechCenter Additive Manufacturing: New opportunities for industries

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | innovation | trends of technology | The market for private and semi-professional 3D printers is booming. Now, the new revolutionary processes are also conquering industrial production, under the term "Additive Manufacturing". But what is essential when printing highly sensitive components for industrial machines – instead of action figures? We asked someone who knows: Andreas Stapelmann, Head of the thyssenkrupp TechCenter Additive Manufacturing in Mülheim, Germany.

Groundbreaking discoveries: five Nobel Prize winners who have made our technologies possible in the first place

Every day, thyssenkrupp's engineers use the achievements of numerous Nobel Prize winners as the basis for the development and production of our innovations

International cooperation at thyssenkrupp rothe erde2

Using the advantages of a manufacturing alliance in a global organization: an example from wind energy.

Dream job in the desert

The Yamama cement plant - seen through the eyes of Antony Maria John, Civil Quality Control Engineer.

Worldwide location communication via Smart Glasses

Digital dialog instead of analog business travel: Smart Glasses improve processes and save time and money.

smartform® – enormous potential for cost reduction of complex components

The two-stage deep drawing process enables cost savings between 10 and 15 percent per manufactured part.

Submarine components from 3D printers go into series production

Additive manufacturing bridges the limits of conventional processes. Entire process steps can be eliminated.

Automation in car body construction

In Mühlacker, car body manufacturing takes place in a fully automated production line with up to 220 robots.

Carbon2Chem: when emissions become valuable substances

With our innovative technology Carbon2Chem we convert climate-damaging CO2 into valuable raw materials.
