What does a cutting machine operator do?

"Simply removing mechanically everything that does not belong to the finished component" - this description sounds simple, but does not do justice to the profession of a cutting machine operator. There is no planing, but chips do fall, through turning, milling, drilling and grinding.
Machinists produce tools for our drop forge from various steel and metal products and do so with the utmost precision. Nowadays, computer-controlled (CNC) machines are mostly used for this. Their tasks also include carefully planning and preparing sequences and machining processes. To do this, cutting machine operators have to read and implement technical drawings correctly.
