Industrial Mechanic

Are you fascinated by large production plants and complex technology? Then train as an industrial mechanic at Schunk.

Industrial mechanics are specialists in regard to the manufacturing, servicing, and monitoring of complex technical systems.

They manufacture components and subassemblies and assemble them into complete systems. These systems can comprise both individual plants and entire production lines, for example for the manufacturing of carbon or sintered metal products.
