KUKA Roboter at the open days of HTL Paul-Hahn-Straße - Linzer Technikum
On January 13th and 14th 2017 the technical school HTL Paul-Hahn-Straße – Linzer Technikum (shortly LiTec) held its annual open days.
January 25, 2017
Highly-motivated students and teachers welcomed over 700 guests and answered all possible questions during a guided tour through the school.
An extraordinary highlight of that tour was the robot lab with creative applications, all programmed on KUKA robots by the students themselves. One robot, for example, mixed non-alcoholic drinks for the visitors whereas they could play some kind of table tennis game on another robot.
“Our robot lab is a world full of Industrie 4.0 applications. Learning becomes literally an adventure for students who are hungry for knowledge.” say Dr. Christian Hinterreiter, head of department, and Ing. Bernhard Venzl, both responsible for the educational administration of the robot lab. The robot lab hosts five KUKA robots of low as well as high payloads. Robotics is part of the curriculum in all disciplines containing the focus area automation engineering.
