Detailed information on the job offer

Job profile: The job description as a CNC cutting machine operator (m/f/d)

Machining mechanics generally manufacture precision metal components, which can be produced using processes such as milling, turning, drilling, grinding, etc. A CNC program is created on the basis of a technical drawing or a 3D model, which controls the machining of a component on a corresponding milling or turning machine. The special feature of CNC machining is that the machining process is based on computer-aided machine control (“Computerized Numerical Control”). With CNC processing machines of this type, components can be manufactured with micrometer precision. The operation of these machines is the responsibility of a cutting machine operator, who also monitors the machining process and carries out quality checks during production, among other things.
