Working with an innovative spirit
engineering. tomorrow. together. Engineering is key to making thyssenkrupp’s brand promise a reality. The best way to understand what ‘engineering’ means for us and our customers is to take a look at the work of our engineers.
The binding element
It is a high-strength material, yet in the event of a crash it absorbs the energy generated upon impact. thyssenkrupp Steel presents tribond®, an all-new steel composite for hot forming. Car manufacturers should take note.
Made in Germany
Produced locally, delivered globally: Special steel from thyssenkrupp Steel is a giant leap for innovation in many sectors.
Car of the future
With its InCar® plus development project, thyssenkrupp presents over 40 new drive, chassis and steering control and body technology.
Improved field of vision finally
The InCar®plus ‘Thin A-pillar’ project from thyssenkrupp Steel Europe delivers better visibility.
More than just good ideas
With InCar® plus, thyssenkrupp has continued to build upon its comprehensive development project in the area of automotive manufacturing, and in doing so, the company has combined expertise from three different business areas. Axel Grüneklee is the overall coordinator for all individual projects and employees.
“We offer customers the perfect solution.”
InCar® plus is a forward-thinking, all-round package for the automotive industry.
A new bumper system has been developed as part of the InCar®plus initiative. The steel girders not only save on weight, they are cheaper too.
A growing business: hot forming
thyssenkrupp Steel Europe shares its expertise and is rewarded for its efforts, for example in customer Gedia’s transition to hot forming in its production process.
thyssenkrupp is preparing for the World Solar Challenge: The world championship for solar-powered cars will take place between Darwin and Adelaide this October. The thyssenkrupp team will hit the road in its ‘SunRiser.’
Attractive outer paneling made easy
Steel Europe has now brought two highly effective corrosion protection coatings to maturity – for use with visible car body outer paneling parts.
“We see the automotive industry as driving forward technology.”
Steel is the dominant material in cars. What is thyssenkrupp Steel Europe doing so that it stays this way?
Customers save time and money
Steel Europe bundles its hot forming activities with a unique modeling and simulation system in Dortmund.
Designer wheels made from steel
Sleek rims and attractive wheels: The steel-CFRP hybrid wheel developed by thyssenkrupp Steel Europe is contributing to reducing costs and weight – while also making the product more environmentally friendly
Simulation in action
thyssenkrupp Steel Europe uses simulations and crash tests to study vehicle safety. This is an ongoing process that provides a critical basis for product development.
A revolutionary hose coupling from Austrian-based manufacturer HENN is successful across the globe. Steel Europe supplies the material.
The sandwich effect
Lighter, more affordable, higher quality: Steel Europe develops hybrid material litecor® for car bodies.
“It’s in the Mix”
Why do Volkswagen and thyssenkrupp Steel Europe cooperate so closely in the area of lightweight vehicle construction? And why is it so important, here in particular, to get the customer involved at an early stage? An interview with Dr. Martin Goede, Head of Technology Planning and Development at Volkswagen.
Gearing up for electromobility
New types of electrical steel make it possible: The torque of the electric motor is increased, while a modified rotor shaft decreases the weight of the entire rotor.
“Knowledge creates ideas. Industry creates solutions.”
Hans Jürgen Kerkhoff, President of the German Steel Federation (WV Stahl), and Matthias Kleiner, President of the Leibniz Association, spoke about the significance of research and the economy for our society.
thyssenkrupp Steel Europe regularly overhauls its plants and systems to help guarantee the quality of its products.
Sun worshippers in the wind tunnel
By the time the ThyssenKrupp SunRiser heads to the World Solar Challenge, it will have completed a whole battery of tests – in the wind tunnel as well.
Great new products
We team up with large (family-owned) companies as well as small and medium-sized businesses to support them in developing new products. Tag along with our customer service representatives as they head out to meet clients.
Compact quiz – Family-owned companies and SMBs
What are the largest and oldest German companies, and where are they headquartered?
The Winkelmann Group is one of the leading companies in the metal forming industry. Long-term thinking and planning while remaining innovative and flexible is all in a day’s work for the family-owned company.
The complete range
2015 – time for something new: a new look, a new design, a new structure. thyssenkrupp Steel Europe has completely updated and redesigned its product catalog.
500 meters of cold strips per minute
The company Risse + Wilke from Iserlohn can now offer higher precision manufacturing than ever before with a new, ultra-modern Duo re-rolling stand.
Harder and thinner than steel armour plate
The new high-grade manganese steel is extremely strong, and can still be processed easily – for example to build high-security cash transporters. This material is now an award winner.
Steel has many shades of green
