Metal technicians in machining technology are involved with the planning, manufacturing and processing workpieces by means of machining (e.g. drilling, milling, turning, filing, grinding), turning, filing, grinding). Their workpieces include machine parts such as axles, shafts, rollers, bolts, wedges, rollers, gears or pulleys, as well as specimens for further
They plan the work steps, select the required materials and and standard parts and manufacture the workpieces according to technical plans and specifications. In the process conventional machine tools (e.g. lathes, drilling machines, milling and
grinding machines), but above all computer-controlled (CNC) machines are used.
You will program and modify production programs for CNC machine tools and transfer CAD designs into the the production programs (CAM). They inspect the finished workpieces for errors and defects and, if necessary and, if necessary, make corrections and adjustments to the production programs.
Machinists also carry out fine manual work on the workpiece, such as precision work on the workpiece, such as filing, sawing, polishing or thread cutting.
