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.
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.
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.
Steel Europe bundles its hot forming activities with a unique modeling and simulation system in Dortmund.
A coking plant becomes a bakery
A modern testing facility belonging to thyssenkrupp Steel and Industrial Solutions can transform coke oven gas into baking powder.
Focused efficiency at 0.18 millimeters
The amount of electricity used by Denmark in half a year: That’s how much power Europe’s transformers alone have to save by 2020, a job that calls for highly efficient, grain-oriented electrical steel.
Always stay flexible
How can complex production methods be optimized? The international research project RECOBA explores this question.
It pays off
How can you determine quality and what role do the casinos of Monte Carlo play in simulating mechanical properties? Andreas Kern, Head of Quality Assurance in the Heavy Plate Business Area, provides an explanation.
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.
If you sow wind, you shall reap power
Innovative steel products such as non-oriented electrical steel are helping to make wind turbines more efficient – and they go easy on natural resources.
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.
