Content of the Training:
You start the first year by learning the basics of metalworking and electrics. You gain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art computer-controlled machine tools for milling, drilling, grinding and polishing metal objects. You are soon able to service and repair smaller systems and equipment on your own. In the second year, you attend welding classes and learn to operate systems from MAG and E-Hand, amongst others.
After the intermediate exam, during the third year you learn about plastics processing, pneumatics and hydraulics. In the fourth and last year, you concentrate on warehouse systems and the art of assembling entire production plants. Before you take the final examination, we naturally make sure you are well-prepared.
