A wide range of innovations means thyssenkrupp is always a step ahead: Our strength is our ability to continuously improve state-of-the-art processing technologies and high-quality materials.

Our range of steel products extends from plain carbon structural steels to premium special steels with extreme hardness. Applications include production machinery, process equipment, and other engineering uses.

Our wear-resistant XAR® steels are available in various grades and thicknesses. This innovative solution is in demand both for mining equipment and for steel and cement production plants.

Almost all thyssenkrupp materials are available in an extensive range of products throughout the world. In Germany alone we deliver around 150,000 articles from stock to our customers – just in time and in the required grades and sizes. A sophisticated warehousing, logistics, and IT system makes this possible.

Manufacturers of tracked construction machinery around the globe rely on thyssenkrupp as their strategic partner for undercarriage components and systems . In addition, thyssenkrupp produces various engine components such as crankshafts, connecting rods, and camshafts, as well as custom slewing rings for use as turntables.

thyssenkrupp also designs and builds slewing rings for machinery, construction equipment, and cranes. The rings are custom engineered and manufactured in close consultation with customers. Optimized designs, an excellent power-to-weight ratio, an open center, and integrated gearing make thyssenkrupp slewing rings the ideal choice for bearings in industrial machinery. With our closed and segmented versions we are the world’s leading industry partner.

Whatever the project, our customers also profit from our vast experience and engineering expertise. Our global engineering and service network can always be relied upon.
