Industrial mechanic

Integrated vocational training

Industrial mechanics are active in production and servicing where they ensure that machines and production systems are always operational.

They set them up and check the functions. They apply suitable test methods, determine the cause of malfunctions, order the appropriate replacements parts or produce the parts themselves and carry out repairs. Following completion of assembly and test work, they instruct colleagues or customers in operation and handling.

If they work in the production of machines and precision manufacturing devices, industrial mechanics also process parts made of metal and plastics. They are familiar with processes such as turning, milling, drilling, grinding and various joining processes, e.g. welding and screwed connections, as well as the assembly and adjustment of components.
