Apprenticeship as a Cutting Machine Operator (m/f)

Cutting machine operators construct tool elements, e. g. from a workpiece. This is normally done at the computer-controlled milling machine. With the creation of programs for numerically controlled production systems, the set-up of machines and the choosing of efficient milling tools, cutting machine operators not only monitor their own work, but also ensure the quality standard determined for the products at the same time.
