Engineering | innovation | (Disclaimer: This has been our April Fools' Joke for 2019!) In 1959, the first ever steel roller coaster was created for Disneyland California. Today, our engineers introduce a new era of roller coaster excellence: the MULTIcoaster. Based on our revolutionary MULTI elevator technology, the cableless ride is going to shake the theme park business forever. Chief Engineer Ela Vadoro gives us the first exclusive insights into the spectacular technology!

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 – high-tech dampers from thyssenkrupp Bilstein included. However, who decides how sports, comfort or off-road driving profiles should feel in practice? The answer: colleagues like Matthias Grünig. The test driver is part of the team that travels to northern Sweden. He has told us why the dampers of the future not only look ahead but could even prevent diseases.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | Smart factory | Worth knowing | What will work look like in the future? There is no clear-cut answer for this difficult question. However, it is possible to say how it might look like – that is what we do with our foresight series: In our second scenario, efficiency is everything: production is highly automated, factories are deserted. Human workers are only required for monitoring and emergency purposes – everything else is performed by machines.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | trends of technology | Worth knowing | What will work look like in the future? This is a difficult question for which there is no clear-cut answer. However, it is possible to say how it might look like. In our first scenario, companies are mainly concerned with administration, while teams of specialist freelancers complete the project work via the digital cloud.
