Detailed information on the job offer

Job profile: The job description as a tool presetting employee (m/f/d)

An important part of all our production processes are the right tools, without which professional machining would not be possible. In tool presetting, suitable tools are selected, assembled into complete tools and prepared for production. This includes, for example, assembly and disassembly, precise measurement on optical tool measuring systems, monitoring and documentation as well as evaluation and optimization. Tool presetting therefore makes a valuable contribution to smooth and optimally coordinated production processes.

Kersten Maschinenbau GmbH as an employer

Kersten Maschinenbau GmbH manufactures ready-to-install machine parts and assemblies with the highest precision according to individual customer specifications. On a production area of over 9000m², we offer our more than 120 employees a secure and varied workplace, whether in the turning shop, milling shop, quality assurance, welding shop or metalworking shop. We invest both in state-of-the-art technology and in our employees, who can experience a friendly and familiar working environment with us. 10 trainees are currently gaining their first professional experience and benefit from a collegial and instructive atmosphere in which personal initiative and professional development are encouraged.
We reward commitment: in addition to the shift allowance, we motivate our employees with a performance-based bonus system and external events such as our annual summer party or Christmas party.

What qualities does a tool presetting employee need to have?

Completed technical vocational training, for example as a cutting machine operator, as well as practical experience in handling and selecting cutting tools are required. In addition, an accurate, clean and independent way of working is an advantage, as tool preparation is an important basis for the subsequent production processes, in which errors can quickly be repeated. Knowledge of tool measuring systems is therefore also desirable. To ensure optimum coordination between preparation and production, our presetting department works in 3-shift operation.
