Technical Training Professions


Process Mechanic

As a Process Mechanic, you’ll manufacture components from a wide range of different raw materials. To do this, you’ll help prepare the production process, using machines to make e.g. required tool shapes out of plastic. But your responsibilities go even further than that – you will postprocess the finished components, then assemble the parts. While doing this, you’ll also keep an eye on the details and make sure that all your components are of perfect quality. Maintenance and repair of the machines and tools is of course an important factor in this work.


Mechatronics Engineer

As a Mechatronics Engineer, you’ll make sure that everything functions correctly, especially in our production – because it’s your knowledge that we call upon to maintain and repair the machinery, the heart of our company. But that’s not all: because you’re always open to new developments, you’ll also help to develop technical innovations. For this job, you have to be good with numbers, because measurements and calculations will always be part of your future working life.


Precision Mechanic

As a Precision Mechanic, you’ll use the latest machines and tools to make complex components. And to make sure that these components all fit together later, you’ll coordinate the requirements with the customer, subsequently creating sketches and technical drawings. The term Precision Mechanic is very apt, because extremely precise work is crucial in this job – even the smallest deviations can lead to serious errors in the final product, so it’s a good job that you’ll have computer-based aids to help you! That’s also what will make your training so exciting – you’ll find that the job is the perfect balance between precise manual work and modern high-tech.
