Mein Arbeitstag beginnt mit einer Besprechung mit den Gesellen, die mir mitteilen, welche Reparaturen anliegen und welche Aufgaben ich erledigen kann.

06:30 a.m.

Now it's time for the morning tour of the machining department. Here I check all the machines and top up the lubricating oils.

07:30 a.m.

Next up is a repair in production. My colleague explains the upcoming work steps to me and together we repair the defective machine. After our approval, production can continue there.

10:00 a.m.


10:30 a.m.

I repair damaged spare parts, then store them and finally book them into the SAP system.

10:45 a.m.

Machine downtime! - I have to quickly replace a defective V-belt in a high-gloss turning cell in order to minimise machine downtime. A sense of responsibility is very important in my job, because idle machines mean stagnant production and therefore lower quantities.

01:00 p.m.

I tidy up the workshop, sort the delivered spare parts and also book them into SAP.

02:30 p.m.

Now I'm off work.
