Cutting machine operator - at KAUP since September 2008
"KAUP convinced me very quickly. After only one week student internship in the ninth grade I knew I would like to get into the KAUP internship training. I was all the more delighted when I was accepted. At KAUP I was the first trainee who learned the profession of cutting machine operator within 3 ½ years. It was an exiting time.
Today I work at a modern machining centre in two-shift operation. Mainly component parts for large-scale devices and small series are manufactured there. But this does not become boring. No day is like any other because I constantly have to decide on how I aim to manufacture certain parts. I have little more than a drawing to go by. I really have to consider how to manufacture the component on the drawing in the most economic way and which of course is easy on the material. I decide on my own responsibility which tools I use and how I finally programme the relevant CNC machine. I like this responsibility which has been given to me in such a short time after completing my vocational training."
