Cutting machine operator

When cutting machine operators are busy working, something is almost always turning – whether it be the workpiece or the tool itself. The tools are used to produce individual parts or series production parts for machines, equipment and facilities.

Setting-up a CNC machine

The processing steps are mainly performed by computer-controlled machine tools. Technical documents help the cutting machine operator to plan the production routine and program the machine's computer accordingly. Once the machine and tool equipment have been set-up, the operator monitors the production process, makes adjustments in the program as necessary and ensures that the products meet the strict demands on quality.
