thyssenkrupp forges plans for the future in Homburg: 16,000 tons of premium quality for automotive components
Automotive-sector | Company | Worth knowing | Construction work at the thyssenkrupp site in Homburg is currently in full swing. By 2021, not only the world's most modern forging line but also the largest eccentric press for forged components is to go into production here. At around 80 million euros, it is the biggest investment in the history of the Saarland site - and an important sign for its future.
Automotive-sector | Engineering | mobility of the future | People at thyssenkrupp | They do research on e-mobility, design huge industrial plants, develop software that allows production plants to communicate with each other, and work in the most remote places in the world: engineers ensure progress - and hardly any job is as multifaceted as theirs. During the official "Engineers Week" we focus on their pioneering spirit and show the many different fields in which our engineers work. Patrick Tlauka, project engineer at thyssenkrupp Steel, is working with his team on the selectrify® project: an innovative steel solution made of ultra-light and high-strength steel that makes e-mobility more cost-effective and thus sets the course for a successful energy turnaround in the auto industry. In an interview, he tells us what inspires him about his job each and every day.
energy concepts | mobility of the future | Smart energy | Sustainability and climate protection | Urbanization | Car journeys, air travel and shipping are an integral part of our globalized world, but they also pose a threat to our climate. Alternative fuels made from biomass or based on hydrogen offer promising solutions for the mobility dilemma: with the right technologies, they are climate-neutrally producible and thus a great hope for the energy turnaround.
Automotive-sector | future of production | mobility of the future | For the future of thyssenkrupp, our colleagues around the world are working to make our company more flexible, efficient, and powerful. Our new #newtk strategy focuses on this performance idea. For example, when good research ideas significantly enrich the work of customers and suppliers – the modular research platform (MRP) is on its way.
Automotive-sector | Engineering | mobility of the future | People at thyssenkrupp | On their road trip to Arvidsjaur, Sweden, our automotive experts test their high-tech components under extreme conditions. But who really cares about turning promising concepts into real solutions for the road? The answer: technology managers like Julian Beckmann. He also travels to northern Sweden with us and has told us which innovations could decisively shape the future of driving.
