Automotive-sector | Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | All over the world, our colleagues at thyssenkrupp are working to safeguard the future of our company by making it more flexible, more efficient and more high-performance. In our new strategy #newtk, we are putting performance center stage. One concrete example of this are the autonomous transport vehicles at our Fameck and Terre Haute sites. These vehicles control the flow of goods between Production and the high-bay warehouses fully automatically. The result: greater efficiency, improved safety, lower costs and higher productivity.

Automotive-sector | Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | innovation | All over the world, our colleagues at thyssenkrupp are working to safeguard the future of our company by making it more flexible, more efficient and more high-performance. In our new strategy #newtk, we are putting performance center stage. One specific example is the multifaceted Smart Glasses project: Thanks to these digital data glasses, we have dramatically reduced travel time for our colleagues in the components business and brought about a decisive reduction in plant downtime. In this way, we not only save time but also money – and are able to structure work at our locations far more efficiently.

energy concepts | future of production | Sustainability and climate protection | To make steel production more sustainable, thyssenkrupp is already working on promising hydrogen-based technologies. Because the production of hydrogen requires a lot of electricity, the expansion of renewable energies is a decisive factor for large-scale industrial implementation. During her visit to our Duisburg steel site, Germany’s Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek pointed out that this challenge could only be met by working together. She was impressed by thyssenkrupp’s two-pillar strategy for green steel.

energy concepts | future of production | Sustainability and climate protection | trends of technology | Sustainability – one of our main topics for many years. Climate protection plays a key role in this. For the third time in a row, the non-governmental agency CDP awarded us the highest rating and placed us on the "Climate A List" – an award for our climate protection. Therefore, it is only logical that we have set ourselves a particularly ambitious target for the future: be climate-neutral from 2050 onwards. We have summarized which technologies play a special role in this – and where we are today.

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.
