Stay cool: Thermofluids for E-mobility and data centers
Charging times of just ten minutes? This could soon become a reality for electric vehicles. It is all made possible by immersion cooling, in which technical components are fully submerged in FUCHS thermofluids. The process can also be used for heat management at data centers.

“FUCHS’ business is based on its knowledge of lubricants. And this knowledge can be transformed into logics. Logics that can be used to predict the behavior of a lubricant in a customer’s planned application, for example.”
Dr. Matthias Marquart, Chief Digital Officer, Fuchs Petrolub SE
DMG MORI and FUCHS - two powerful partners

Fine cutting oils of the highest quality
Mannheim · 01.08.2021
The internationally active company FEINTOOL with its headquarters in Switzerland is the market leader in the field of fineblanking. This process is used to produce high-precision components from strips and sheets, for example for drive trains in vehicles. The demands on production and thus on the necessary lubricants are constantly increasing, partly due to the growing complexity of the parts. Together, FUCHS and FEINTOOL have developed oils that are as powerful as they are tailor-made - and ensure the quality of the components.

Sectors in focus: Efficiency by looking at things as a whole
The world is becoming ever more complicated. As a supplier to industry, it's no longer enough simply to offer individual products. Solutions are needed for ever more complex challenges. FUCHS is responding by realigning its organization into business segments. In this way, the solution provider is taking the complexity out of lubricant supply for its customers. An example: the cement industry.
Developed locally, used globally
For the first time ever, Toyota Motor Europe, Brussels-based European subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan, is developing a lubricant for one of its European plants. The cooperation with supplier FUCHS is key here – and has led to a product that Toyota is now even set to deploy worldwide.
FUCHS in space
Today’s space industry is vastly different than it was just a decade ago. Gone are the days when space exploration was limited to government-funded missions.

The future of aviation is easy – FUCHS flies ahead
·
Lightweight construction is the future of aviation. Because if you want to reduce the environmental impact of an aircraft, you have to lower its weight and thus its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This is made possible by carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) and glass fibre reinforced plastics (GFRP), which are 30 percent lighter than aluminium alloys. In order to make the wet machining of CFRP and GRP in particular efficient, FUCHS has developed a water-miscible high-performance cooling lubricant for wet machining: ECOCOOL GLOBAL S 240, which, like the cutting oil PLANTOCUT 22 SR, has just been approved by aircraft manufacturer Airbus for machining and drilling applications on components made of metal and CFRP. "Lightweight construction is a key technology for a sustainable future," says Executive Vice President Industry Division Dr Thomas Christmann of FUCHS. "With our solution, we are paving the way for the uncomplicated integration of new materials into established production processes."

“We now enjoy intensive exchange of knowledge, experience, and ideas at all levels of our two companies. As partners, this clearly makes us both stronger.”
Christian Thönes, Chairman of the executive board at DMG Mori Aktiengesellschaft
One thing is absolutely indispensable: Vision
Following 90 years of rich company history, FUCHS is now entering a new phase of development. The Group is moving forward with full force into the digital and global future. Two generations of Executive Board Chairmen, Dr. Manfred Fuchs and his son Stefan Fuchs, discuss the keys to their family business, where it is rooted, and the plans to take it into the future.
“We took matters into our own hands, which is typically FUCHS.”
The FUCHS Group began its journey toward the new FUCHS2025 business strategy in early 2019. Having already enjoyed highly successful and fast growth in the preceding years, the Group was also keen to secure its future growth with this step. One and a half years later, CEO Stefan Fuchs and Rouven Acquaviva, Head of Strategy Development, explain what FUCHS2025 means for the company, its customers, and its employees – while also describing the path to the ultimate goal. A chat about new perspectives, cultural diversity, and team spirit.

Learning during Lockdown – FUCHS supports social project
We are all feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the consequences are even more acute for those who quit school early and are now returning to complete their school-leaving qualification. Yet it is not all bad news. In fact, various forms of help are available here, such as "Emerging Stronger from the Crisis" – a social project in Mannheim which helps students deal with their fears and recently won the FUCHS Sponsorship Award. This is just one example of how FUCHS adapts to local requirements and accepts social responsibility.
The power of the sun
FUCHS has been producing lubricants of the highest quality for 90 years. But now, some sites are producing something completely different: electricity. This is not just good for the environment. It also shows how FUCHS thinks, as entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to get started are deeply embedded in the group's DNA.

What makes a product environmentally friendly?
Products should be environmentally friendly: cars, packaging, washing machines – and lubricants. One of the goals during production is to keep consumption of energy and raw materials as low as possible. However, is it only a good carbon footprint during the manufacturing process that counts when it comes to picking the best solution for the environment? We spoke to Stefan Fassbender, Director Components, Business Management EMEA – Fuel and Lubricant Solutions at BASF, and Wolfgang Bock, Head of Product Management Industrial Oils at FUCHS. The two of them believe the issue to be more complex.
