Polytechnician, FCC 


Polytechnicians produce the individual workpieces for our production. They assemble the (mostly) metal parts into complete machines. Thanks to the diverse range of parts, polytechnians can produce individual parts or small series. The manual skills required to handle simple tools precisely are just as important as programming and setting up state-of-the-art, computer-controlled machines. It's a high-tech job!
