Training as a Cutting Machine Operator

Are you skilled in your trade, interested in technology and the use of computers? Then training as a cutting machine operator (or cutting mechanic) is just the right thing for you!

When cutting machine operators go to work, something is always turning - either the workpiece to be machined (for example a piece of metal or plastic) or the tool itself, for example a milling cutter or turning tool or both. The tools are used to machine workpieces,i.e. excess material is mechanically removed from the blanks in the form of chips. The most important machining processes are turning, drilling, milling and grinding. By the way, this is where the job title "cutting machine operator" comes from. Mainly by turning and milling, cutting machine operators produce precisely fitting workpieces, i.e. components for machines, devices and systems.
