Cutting Mechanics

by Thunderbike

CNC means Computerized Numerical Control and describes the electronic procedure for controlling so-called machine tools. In order to be able to realise the customer’s own ideas and wishes for a bike here on site, we employ our own production, which specialises solely in CNC machining. But what exactly does machining mechanics do? We looked over the shoulder of our apprentice Julian and asked him how he came to this profession.

Julian has been in our team since then and started an apprenticeship as a two-wheel mechatronics technician. After his apprenticeship he decided to learn a little more about the material of parts production and machining and started his second apprenticeship as a machining mechanic.
