Automobile inventor: 1885 Carl Friedrich Benz

In the 1880s, the time was ripe for an invention that would fundamentally increase people's mobility and change society: the automobile. The German Carl Friedrich Benz went down in industrial history as the inventor of the first automobile. His Benz Patent Motor Car Number 1 “had a gasoline internal combustion engine, clutch, carburetor and gear shift. The vehicle reached 16 kilometers per hour. Benz ‘Kraftwagen had at least one important difference to today's automobiles: It only had three wheels, two larger ones on the rear axle and one smaller one at the front. Gottlieb Daimler built the first four-wheeled motor vehicle in 1886.

Cross rolling process for seamless steel tubes - inventors: 1885 Max and Reinhard Mannesmann

Welded steel pipes were a major safety problem in the 19th century. For example, high pressures arose in steam engines, which sometimes burst pipes and caused serious accidents. In 1885, the German brothers Max and Reinhard Mannesmann developed the cross-rolling process, with which seamless and therefore low-risk steel tubes could be produced. The workpiece (the steel block) was first drilled, then rolled and stretched. The finished pipes had comparatively thick walls.

Reitwagen (motorcycle) - inventors: 1885 Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach

After the German automobile pioneers Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach had built a revolutionary gasoline engine as early as 1883, the way was clear for numerous mobile applications. The "Reitwagen" from 1885 was probably the very first vehicle with a combustion engine and can be regarded as the forerunner of the motorcycle. The idiosyncratic construction was a kind of bicycle with training wheels, gear drive - and gasoline engine. The engine developed half a horsepower at 700 revolutions per minute.

Dry battery - inventors: 1885/86 Wilhelm Hellesen and Carl Gassner

The German inventor Carl Gassner owed his wealth to defective doorbells: In the 19th century, doorbells were initially operated with so-called wet cells, which often dried out and then failed. So Gassner solved the problem with a new type of dry battery and could no longer save himself from placing orders ... Important preparatory work for this invention was carried out by the Dane Wilhelm Hellesen, who replaced the previously liquid electrolyte with a soft mass. This “zinc-carbon battery” with electrodes made of zinc and manganese dioxide has long embodied the basic technical principle of dry batteries.
