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.
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.
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.
