Top training bears fruit

Young SCHUNK specialists have won the German championship of WorldSkills Germany in the discipline Robot Systems Integration. Prize winners Tim Vogel and Lukas Röser will be allowed to compete in the European Championships in Danzig next year.
WorldSkills SCHUNK The SCHUNK talents Lukas Röser and Tim Vogel delivered an impressive performance at the German championships of WorldSkills Germany in the discipline Robot Systems Integration.

From November 28 to 30, 2022, the German championship of WorldSkills Germany in the discipline Robot Systems Integration was hosted by FANUC Deutschland in Neuhausen auf den Fildern. A total of ten participants in five teams faced the competition over a period of three days. The two SCHUNK mechatronics engineers Tim Vogel and Lukas Röser took part where they ended up winning the competition. In 2023, they will be able to demonstrate their skills and expertise at the European Championship in Danzig.

The age limit for this competition is 25 years. In future, trainees will also be able to compete in the Robot Systems Integration discipline. "We'll be there," says Hans Krauss, mechatronics trainer at SCHUNK. "Because by participating in this competition, we are already showing our trainees during their training that they can achieve a lot in their profession," Krauss affirms. "Our trainees regularly celebrate successes in national competitions. This spurs them on and specifically promotes their skills. The WorldSkills Vocational Olympiad consolidates young people's commitment in a special way. They realize that they can work out a great goal for themselves and even participate in an international championship. We want to support that."

SCHUNK talent factory

SCHUNK traditionally focuses on training. The family-owned company regularly invests in holistic and future-oriented training for its young talent at the Lauffen/Hausen, Mengen and St. Georgen locations. Basic craftsmanship skills, digital learning content and working with state-of-the-art machine and plant technology are part of the training program, as are social commitment, involvement in inclusion projects and individual, personal development. At SCHUNK, young people can find their profession for life and actively shape their future. It pays off: More than 95 percent of the trainees stay with the company once they have successfully completed their training.

WorldSkills SCHUNK During the three-day competition, Lukas Röser and Tim Vogel implemented an intelligent handling process at FANUC in Neuhausen: from the structure, wiring, programming, vision integration, and the creation of a digital twin to the final documentation.
