The annual Robo Cup is played to determine the best football-playing robots. Several US universities developed the Darwin-OP robot in co-operation with South Korean robotic specialist Robotis and won both, the RoboCup 2012 and 2013. Europe‘s largest plant for protective gas hardening is located in Bochum- Riemke. Machine parts up to 5.2 m in diameter and 5.0 m height are engulfed in one furnace. Gears can even be treated vertically therein and thereby remain highly customized and dimensionally stable. Reason enough to send for an American gear manufacturer to send their 21 -ton gear on the long journey from the USA to Germany. Four rotary impellers, mounted one above the other on the left and right, propel the snow as far as 40 m. Up to 8,500 t of this white “cargo” can be moved efficiently each and every hour.
