Our cities are growing rapidly. Forecasts estimate that in the next 30 years, so within one generation alone, a further three billion people worldwide will move to metropolitan regions. This presents massive challenges, not only for transport and traffic, but, above all, for the infrastructure and construction of buildings.
Here at thyssenkrupp rothe erde, we are actively participating in shaping the cities of tomorrow with our innovative products: whether this is through passenger transport or the implementation of construction projects.
Sectors in the field of construction and infrastructure
Construction and infrastructure
Excavators are put to use wherever the reliable movement of earth is required. From gardening and landscaping to road and house construction and mine work, excavators are reliable helpers.
As flexible modes of freight transport, lorries are at the centre of global logistics. These transport vehicles must be particularly mobile on the narrow roads of our cities. Slewing bearings by thyssenkrupp rothe erde are a key component for controllable axes.
Tunnel boring machines (TBMs) are used in transport and infrastructure projects. Alongside projects related to the construction of underground and overground railways and street tunnels, these also include water supply and sewage disposal projects. The main applications of these machines are cutting-head bearings, which are also called main bearings.
Cranes and lifting devices
The central function of cranes is to securely transport goods and people in ever more sophisticated ways. Here, the following principle applies: Bigger, higher, faster and further. This principle applies irrespective of whether a wind turbine is to be built on the high seas, ships are to be efficiently loaded and unloaded, or whether a record high skyscraper is to be erected.
In order to complete construction projects in as little time as possible, machines such as soil drilling devices, skips, concrete pump cantilevers, vibrating rollers, wheel bearings and pivot bearings are indispensable. rothe erde ® slewing bearings from thyssenkrupp rothe erde are developed to withstand the tough operating conditions on construction sites around the world.
