Influence all facets of mechanics as a production mechanic
Are you open to innovation? With us, you will learn to influence all facets of mechanics: Production mechanics manufacture workpieces using a wide variety of processes, assemble devices, apparatus and machines and are responsible for their provision, commissioning and maintenance.
You enjoy shearing, edging, bending and punching just as much as screwing, soldering, riveting or welding? Then an apprenticeship at RUAG is right for you. Our production mechanics are proficient in a wide range of processing and joining techniques and therefore in all facets of mechanics.
Key points of your apprenticeship at RUAG
Production mechanic EFZ [Swiss certificate of competence]
Production mechanics work in mechanical operations. From the precision component to the production line: They machine metal components and assemble them into devices, apparatus and machines. To do this, they read production documents and technical drawings and prepare the necessary work equipment. As you can see, people in this profession influence all facets of mechanics.
They manufacture apparatus, equipment and machine parts, but also entire steel construction productions. Production mechanics continuously monitor series production on computer-controlled machines - such as laser or waterjet systems - and intervene when necessary. If deviations are detected, they correct the settings on the production equipment.
They also use lathes and milling machines to produce precise individual parts and check their quality after production using measuring instruments. They assemble and install them on assemblies, which includes checking and maintaining the finished machines. If necessary, production mechanics take them apart and replace individual mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic elements. A job at RUAG is therefore extremely technical and varied.
