Industrial professions

Plastic and metal-forming toolmaker

Plastic and metal-forming toolmaker

Regardless whether crankshafts, medical devices, or refrigerator doors are involved, in order to be able to manufacture such components, plastics or metals must be bent, cut, punched, or formed. This can be done only with the right tool. Plastic and metal-forming toolmakers make tools for cutting, punching, or bending to enable industrial series production, and are classified as “high-tech specialists”. They use computer-controlled toolmaking machines to make high-precision tools. Tools with very specific designs may need to be made, depending on the respective industrial sector.

Length of training:

3.5 years

Training departments:

Training center, toolmaking, warehouse, fixture construction, prototyping, quality assurance / measuring room, production, milling shop (with CNC machine training), turning shop

Requirements:

Very good secondary modern school diploma or good secondary school diploma

Process mechanic for plastic and rubber technology

Process mechanic for plastic and rubber technology

Today, plastics are needed everywhere. Whether it be keyboards for computers, shopping bags, or motorcycle seats – specific plastics are developed for every requirement. Uncured rubber, a natural raw material, is also used in many areas to produce vulcanized rubber. The specialists for plastics and rubber make various products, such as films, plates, or housings with the aid of special machines. They are capable of differentiating between polymer materials based on their specific properties and to select suitable processing methods for the respective materials.

Length of training:

3 years

Training departments:

Training center, design, prototyping, quality assurance / measuring room, production, technical care, laboratory, pilot plant

Requirements:

Very good secondary modern school diploma or good secondary school diploma

Cutting-machine operator (turning/milling)

Cutting-machine operator (turning/milling)

Interior parts of machines, vehicles, or household appliances have to be made with millimeter accuracy. The use of grinding, turning, or milling machines is required to transform a workpiece into an engine piston. Cutting-machine operators are capable of removing extremely thin layers of metal, resulting in very fine chips (as with planing). They are specialists for high-precision work. They are assisted by computer-controlled machines, which they need to be able to program and set up. The wide range of machining techniques requires a considerable amount of specialized knowledge. Cutting-machine operators receive training in one of two work areas at Woco: turning-machine systems or milling-machine systems.

Length of training:
