Training as a precision mechanic
Responsible for all technical refinements
Precision mechanics are specialists for precision devices in tool and machine construction. They produce components for machines and precision devices and install them together with electronic measuring and control components to assemble functional units.
The production of punching tools and steel templates also requires highest accuracy.
Precision mechanics often work on computer-controlled machine tools, but some of their work is manual. They plan work flow, adjust machine tools, perform the work (e.g. turning, milling, drilling grinding) and evaluate the work results. They are used to handling a variety of measuring tools. They adhere to the standards and technical documentation and strive for continuous improvement of the work processes, including economic aspects.
