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.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | Engineering | future of production | innovation | Smart factory | trends of technology | Technology has never before developed so fast as it does today. One trend replaces the next - that won’t change in 2020 either. Analog and digital worlds are merging, vast amounts of data provide the foundation for pinpoint production decisions, companies are merging digitally, product and production are in digital dialogue. Industry 4.0. thyssenkrupp is already using the Top Tech Trends of 2020.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | innovation | Industrial components from state-of-the-art 3D printers have decisive advantages over conventionally produced components. The naval experts at thyssenkrupp in Kiel are therefore working intensively to make 3D-printed components economical for submarine construction as well. The necessary quality and safety standards have already been set - together with a team of specialists from thyssenkrupp in Mülheim, they are now focusing on a major goal: the first series-produced submarine components.
