Innovative steel materials and surface finishings based on scientific skills
We develop new materials and coatings - from the idea, through preliminary studies to production readiness. The following are also included: The optimization of surfaces and materials over their life cycle, as well as the maintenance of the production specifications of cold-rolled and coated products.
A permanent component of the research and development activities of the steel business of thyssenkrupp is pilot plants for the development of materials and coatings. We can, for example, carry out the physical and numerical simulation of materials. This is supported by the development areas of the company, the various plants and Sales. The material parameters required for the simulation in the automotive industry are determined and recorded in a database. This means that our customers have up-to-date and reliable data available for our products. The extensive know-how is also used throughout the group for various projects.
