Women are still outnumbered in technical professions? Sadly, that's still the reality. To mark International Girls' Day, we present three female engineers from thyssenkrupp who have found their passion in the technical world.
At thyssenkrupp rothe erde, Thomas Handreck can pursue his passion for tinkering. The engineer has been developing calculation methods for slewing bearings for over 33 years. With his latest project, a 3D viewer, he is making the interpretation of data even faster and easier.
Slewing bearings withstand extreme forces, for example in wind turbines. However, their replacement and repair is often quite complex. The Smart Roller from thyssenkrupp rothe erde, enables a better understanding of the application and can avoid repair work and downtime.
Wind energy is considered as the most important renewable energy source in Germany. Thanks to our slewing bearings, everything runs smoothly in the giant wind turbines. With a patented process we are now making the turbines even more efficient.
Robot Process Automation (RPA) is an automation technology for business processes. Bots take over repetitive, rule-based and manual process steps – and thus take the burden of employees. They are left with more time for challenging tasks.
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.
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.
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.
