Within the scope of the collaborative research center 414 "Computer and Sensor Based Surgery," the surgical robot system RobaCKa for craniofacial surgery was developed. In 2003, we started with first patient treatment at the medical center of the University of Heidelberg after numerous tests with plastic skull models and experimental pigs. This paper shows the advantage in terms of reachability of complex trajectory geometry. Additionally the real-time behavior of the end effector could be improved. The project is funded by the "Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung" in the special program "Neue Ingenieur-Teams." Authors: J. Raczkowsky, H. Peters, C. Kubler, D. Engel, H. Worn, University of Karlsruhe, Karlsruhe, Germany.
