Everything that moves piques your interest. In addition, you are very good with tools and enjoy working in a team. Toolmaking technicians are specialists who rebuild tools according to plan, maintain them and produce spare parts. Computer-controlled machines, so-called CNC machines, will help you do this. The programs for these systems are written on the PC and processed on the machine.

Toolmaking technicians are responsible for ensuring that tools and mechanisms are functioning right from the start. If they notice errors or damage, they rectify them/it immediately.
