With passion for new automobiles

Our services along the value chain

For our customers in the automotive industry, we are the system partner for all key components in the car body and powertrain process chains. We have more than 100 years' experience in overcoming technical limitations through innovation. We achieve this with quality, comprehensive engineering skills and a great deal of passion for projects.

Workflow
Serial Production
Lightweight specialist for highest automobile performance

We offer series production in the automotive sector for some very sophisticated systems and components. This includes car body construction in particular. Especially where our high level of materials expertise within the group meets our considerable experience in systems engineering and die manufacturing. Conventional materials as well as lightweight products for series production start up and ending or for customers spare part needs are processed.

Engineering Solutions
Planning with a vision

The direction of a project is set in the initial phase. Therefore it is even more important then, that decisions are made with an eye on the entire production process. It begins with highly-qualified project planning and proposal preparation, and is not complete until together with our customers we are sure, that all processes are optimized within the Budget.

Prototypes
The entire process chain under one roof

Unique in this form in Central Europe: thyssenkrupp System Engineering covers the requirements for the entire spectrum of prototype body construction with its about 150 employees and the equipments at its Wadern-Lockweiler location. The entire process chain can be handled or implemented at a single location – from engineering, to forming dies, parts manufacturing, to fixtures and assemblies even the setting up a system as well as retrofitting a system.

Dies
Specialist in exterior car body shell parts – the absolute ultimate

The exterior shell of a car body must be perfect, and when painted must not exhibit any direct unevenness. We therefore like to talk of the "absolute ultimate in automotive engineering". Dies must be constructed, which guarantee this high level of manufacturing quality can also be reproduced in volume manufacturing – a standard only achievable with mature die construction expertise.

Body in White
How the fascination with cars takes shape and structure

The timely response to the demands of today and tomorrow – this is what counts, especially in automobile production. Quick change of types, shorter innovation cycles and increased competitive pressure require unique flexibility and in-depth knowledge from us as manufacturing partners. We know this and this is what fires us up.

Final Assembly
Know-how across the board

Technically complex final assembly tasks are our specialty. As a system supplier with distinctive competencies in prototype construction, tool making, plant engineering and service, we can offer expertise across the board. From manual assembly fixtures to the fully automated integration of pre-assembled modules: We will support our customers by offering appropriate solutions right up to the finishing touches.

Battery Industry
Emergent expertise for the market of the future

Environmentally friendly energy storage and low emission electrical drives are set to shape the future of tomorrow. New ideas and intelligent approaches are required. As a system integrator we are poised to shape the future with our experiences and best practices. When new technologies and processes are required we are eager to develop and realize their impacts.

Electric Motor Assembly
E-mobility: We manufacture the future

Faster, quieter, more independent: Ongoing development is the hallmark of electric mobility. This also changes the demands for assembly lines for electric motors. Serial and parallel hybrids, range extenders or straight electrical drive trains; compared to the production of combustion engines, there are quite a few differences. Many insights and processes may, however, analogously be applied in e-motor assembly. This is our clear advantage.

Powertrain Assembly
Powertrain assembly systems

We feel at home in the technical implementation of complex assembly systems for internal combustion engines and drive systems -and that worldwide. We know how fast our customers must respond to new markets and market developments. As we have already been accompanying and advising them early in the planning phase, we can also support them with comprehensive engineering services. Since we are close at hand, we are in a position to understand the issues and offer customized support.

Powertrain Testing
Quality control? But of course!

We at thyssenkrupp System Engineering are both: a manufacturer of turnkey test facilities, individual test stands and test systems and supplier of valuable know-how. Together with our customers, our engineers are constantly improving test scenarios for combustion engines or transmissions. Optimal parameters for product testing are set mainly in our own development centers in Bremen and Hanover. Intensive product management dictates that we put our own products to the test bench every day, consistently working on improvements and innovations.
