The German free state of Bavaria is known all over the world for its car and machine manufacture. In 2001 the Bavarian government launched an offensive to become a high-tech centre.
Technologie Centrum Westbayern (TCW) was established in 2001 as a part of this action plan. TCW is a leading institute for production mechatronics in close collaboration with the academy in Augsburg. The students at the academy can study for a bachelor's or master’s degree.
X-Guard protects the students
The school recently installed a new R&D robot facility. Two robots from Kuka are in place and Axelent has supplied X-Guard machine guards. The X-Guard system protects the students during the practical parts of their education. Bavarian companies also book lessons at TCW for their machine specialists.
Josef Wolf, MD at TCW:
“I prefer X-Guard because it's simple to install and adjust. I’m also very satisfied with the service and support provided by Axelent from the very first meeting right up to the implementation.”
Harald Steidle, MD at Axelent in Germany:
“As a representative of Axelent I feel very proud to have supported a first rate institute such as TCW. In addition, at Axelent we enjoy giving young people a leg up into the business world.”
