Technical Product Designer (m/f/d)
your day

What exactly does a technical product designer (m/f/d) do?

 Are you passionate about designing, drawing and developing? Then an apprenticeship as a technical product designer (m/f/d) is exactly the right thing for you! Already during your apprenticeship you will get to know the manifold tasks of our development and design department. You will be integrated into the operational processes at an early stage and quickly take on responsibility.

Minimum qualifications: Secondary school leaving certificate

Duration of the apprenticeship: approx. 3,5 years

What we are looking for:

• Good spatial imagination

• Technical understanding and creativity

• Diligence

• Ability to work in a team


Did you know that…? a technical product designer (m/f/d) you assist the design engineer in the development of product concepts and designs, which are then implemented in two- and three-dimensional representations with the help of CAD programs.
Technical product designers at BORBET are a part of modern motor vehicles of tomorrow.

  • Create 3D solid and surface models as well as drawings and release documents
  • Close cooperation with project managers and designers
  • Independent design and calculation of light alloy wheels and their components

07:00 AM   

After I've stamped, I boot up my laptop and start our CAD program. Then I check my e-mails.    
8:00 AM   
The day before, I had built a CAD model of a new wheel and discussed it with my colleagues. Now we're going to check whether the wheel can be manufactured and whether it meets the customer's requirements.    
11:00 AM    
For another project, the design data has changed. A few weeks ago I had created a drawing for this which I am now updating and having checked for completeness and correctness.    
12:00 PM   
Time for lunch break. I heat up my lunch in the kitchen and talk to my colleagues about professional and about professional, but also private topics.    
12:30 PM    
Now the prototype for a wheel insert is being produced with the 3D printer. We prepare the data set for for printing. I clean the 3D printer and start the printing process. The prototype will be ready the next day and can then be taken for painting.    
2:00 PM    
Next door in the tool shop, the clamping device of a CNC milling machine is to be reworked. I put on my safety shoes, measure the component there and create a hand sketch. From this we can then create the CAD model tomorrow and work out a production drawing.    
3:30 PM    
Closing time! I sign off, walk to the parking lot with a few colleagues and head home.
