Activities of a tool mechanic
Tool mechanics produce precision building parts by manual and automatic manufacturing methods from different materials. They work at the batch production of products made of plastics und metals and manufacture instruments for the operative medical technology. Their operational fields are form technique, fixture technology, pressing technique as well as instrument technique.

Activities of a cutting machine operator
Cutting machine operators work in areas of the industry and the trade in which building parts are produced by straining methods. Their operational fields are lathe systems, milling machine systems, grinder machine systems as well as automatic lathe systems.

Activities of a machine and plant operator
Machine and plant operators (2 years duration of training) work in almost every production line in the industry and are mainly deployed in operating machines and plants. The contents of the training are corresponding to the metal occupations so that a continuation in another occupation that requires training is possible.
