VCU Robotics



Short name


The VCU TCD machine factory is specialised in the provision of technical services and the performance of repairs, revisions, (large-scale) renovations, dismantling and construction of all kinds of vessels. One of VCU TCD’s strongest qualities is that these activities can be performed on-site aboard the ship.

VCU Robotics supplies customer-specific automation solutions to take the production process to a higher level. With these solutions, staff shortages are no longer a problem and the production process becomes more efficient, reliable and transparent. VCUR specialisation lies mainly in supplying hygienic pick-and-place machines for the food processing industry.
