Types of CNC jobs in the Netherlands
We offer you CNC operator jobs at various companies or factories in the metal, engineering or construction sector. As a CNC operator, you prepare and execute various works based on the specifications and drawings provided. Various materials are used so it is important to have knowledge about their processing.
A CNC operator also handles the installation, adjustment and maintenance of the machines. It is important to be able to configure and select the right tools and assemble them. It is also important to critically evaluate production processes in order to improve them. The CNC operator function is often combined with the CNC turning and CNC milling functions.
We also offer CNC programmers jobs. As a CNC programmer, you deal with the programming of computer-controlled machines, such as lathes, milling machines, grinding machines, planers and folding and bending machines. You study working drawings and translate them into CNC machining programs. You determine the best method of producing parts by monitoring and adjusting the production process. Sometimes a CNC programmer is also an operator. Complicated machines or large companies sometimes require a separate CNC operator.
