Engineering | innovation | To this day, the world's oceans and their seabed are largely unexplored. The conditions on the seabed are too extreme for humans – such as the very high pressure that exists in the depths of the oceans. These extreme circumstances have turned the deep sea to a fascination for mankind up to the present day. Above all, researchers, navies and utilities are interested in exploring the great unknown. The goal: comprehensive mapping of the seabed - a kind of Google Maps for the sea floor.

Automotive-sector | Engineering | future of production | innovation | In Europe alone, more than 20 million vehicles roll off the production lines every year, and almost 100 million worldwide. One thing is clear: At volumes like these, even small savings can have huge effects. thyssenkrupp Steel has developed an innovative process to production readiness which can achieve enormous savings in the manufacture of high-strength cold formed parts. But the two-stage deep drawing process known as smartform® offers further advantages: It reduces raw material requirements by up to 15 percent on average, improves quality and also reduces reworking and maintenance requirements. Per manufactured part, this can save between ten and 15 percent in costs.
