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.
- The vocational training includes at least the following skills and abilities:
- Operational, technical and customer-orientated communication
- Planning and control of work flow; control and evaluation of work results
- Quality management
- Testing and measuring
- Manual milling and forming
- Machine processing
- Maintenance of operating materials
- Classification, allocation and handling of processing and auxiliary materials, tempering
- Programming of numerically controlled devices, machines and systems
- Machining on machine tools using different production methods
- Development and testing of hydraulic, pneumatic and electro-pneumatic controllers
- Installation and initial operation
- Maintenance of technical systems
