From June to July 2024, two students from abroad repeatedly spent 8 weeks at Stoof International GmbH gaining an insight into the complex manufacturing processes, methods and techniques of specially protected vehicles. As future engineers, they independently developed solutions, designed custom-made assemblies in the 3D CAD program and successfully manufactured them with the help of various machining and joining techniques. This is our contribution to international networking, we are pleased that this program is so well received and that the students can take a lot of new things home with them.
