Without escalators, urban mobility would look significantly different today. Over the years and decades, we have perfected the golden idea that Jesse Reno had 125 ago step by step. Regardless, all our escalators were still fabricated from parts on each individual job site until 1950. It was this year when we made the move into industrial production – with our plant in Hamburg. Today, our engineers are getting help by various robots to meet the challenges of the continuously growing escalator market. However, as we configure them all according to our individual customers' requirements, they cannot replace the human expertise of our colleagues.

A few years ago, our engineers aspired a unique transportation system with high capacities and high speeds, but no waiting times for the passengers. With ACCEL, this ambitious mission has become reality. While you step onto the innovative moving walk at normal walking speed, it smoothly accelerates you up to 7.2 km/h – or even 12 km/h, if you continue walking. But don't worry, right before you leave the pallet band, it decelerates to normal speed again. Thanks to this permanent flow, airports and metro stations can move 7,300 passengers per hour and direction. And totally eliminate waiting times. So, no more excuses for missing your next train or flight. Sorry!

Like a giant puzzle, airplanes are constructed of millions of individual parts. Each stage of the production process has to flow into the next. The same applies to @Boeing's planes. Since 1998 we organize the entire supply chain for their aluminum and titanium materials – it's one of the most comprehensive contracts of its kind worldwide. As an experienced system integrator we are reducing complexity and centrally coordinate material deliveries. Over 500 component suppliers to Boeing from all over the world contact us directly when they need metals. With over 40 service centers in 20 countries on five continents, we are able to cut, package and ship the material to precisely meet each supplier’s needs. That's why we can proudly say there is no logistics puzzle we can't complete.

In the aircraft industry, there is a certain process that is the heart of every production: the positive joining of structure parts by drilling and countersinking. Wouldn't it be nice to automate these crucial steps in full precision to save time and reduce errors? With "arcade" we can. Firstly, our robot-aided tool positions itself highly accurately on the specific part using a stereo camera. Then it is ready to drill holes with a diameter of up to 12 mm within a maximum of 10 seconds. A spindle with a speed of up to 20,000  rounds per minute allows for a very accurate hole of almost any material stacks. Such a flexible little helper...

Since 2008, the Algarve International Circuit in Portimão, Portugal, demands everything from professional racers. Apart from the track's downhill slope sections and many unconventional turns, it’s the undulating surface that constantly challenges both the drivers and their cars. Good that this bolide of @astonmartinracingofficial has @bilstein_official. Because thanks to their multi-way adjustments, our high-quality dampers give all our partners maximum flexibility to master even the most bouncing track section.

Today, the clinker for the cement production is combusted almost exclusively in rotary kilns which are directly attached to towers like this one on in the picture. Long story short: Within this tower, the clinker comes to life. However, because the energy-intensive process causes around 7 percent of the human-made CO2 emissions worldwide, we have invented Oxyfuel. The technology enables us to capture and recycle the gas. It can also be retrofitted into existing cement plants – an argument that should not be underestimated, as such facilities are generally designed for a lifespan of 30 to 50 years.

When it comes to elevators, everyone thinks of skyscrapers, railway stations or shopping malls. In a unique project thyssenkrupp has installed a spectacular stage elevator at São Paulo's opera house Sala São Paulo. The system enhances the experience of the opera and elevates the instruments and musicians from underneath the stage to the levels of the spectators. A truly spectacular project that connects engineering, art and culture in a unique way.
