Precision mechanic (m/f/d) / Mechanical Engineering

Precision plays a major part in many professions. For instance, if you work as a precision mechanic. Because in this case you are always not far away when the highest precision to the micrometer is required in tool and machine construction. You take care of small components – whether on computer-controlled machine tools or on precision mechanical devices such as hydraulic control components. To get started, you first receive the order and evaluate the supplied sketches and drawings, plan the workflows and select the appropriate machine tools. Manual machining methods are sometimes just as much in demand as skilful handling of machines: Because the work of a precision mechanic is a great balance between manual work and high-tech.

If you can demonstrate the following, you have come to the right place:

  • good grades in mathematics
  • technical and scientific understanding
  • manual dexterity
  • interest in metalworking
  • spatial imagination
  • personal initiative, reliability and capacity for teamwork
  • enjoyment of precision work
