Job profile

Who will I be after this apprenticeship? What are my skills?

After the three-year training programme to become a production mechanic, you will be able to set up complex computer-controlled milling and turning machines independently. You will be able to use both CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) tools to produce the smallest precision parts for the medical technology or semiconductor industry as well as complex, large-volume components for the machine industry and countless other products for a wide range of sectors. In addition to the machining of metallic materials, we focus primarily on the machining of plastics. In order to guarantee the quality of the workpieces, you will be able to use high-precision measuring and testing instruments.

Following your apprenticeship at KUNDERT, you will be ideally equipped to become a specialist, whether on the job or in the form of further training.


Training programme

What can I expect?

You will spend the first year of your apprenticeship at libs - Industrielle Berufslehren Schweiz in Rapperswil, where you will complete your basic training. You will learn the following skills: milling (conventional and CNC), turning (conventional and CNC), filing, drilling, thread cutting, reaming, assembly and pinning.

You will spend the second and third year of your apprenticeship in our training workshop. You will spend 5 months each in the milling and turning areas, learning how to operate and set up CNC-controlled machines.

During this time, you will also learn how to create 3D models and drawings in CAD, which are then required for CAM programming.

In addition to working in the training workshop, you will spend a two-month training block familiarising yourself with quality assurance activities. To familiarise you with our entire company, you will also be introduced to the work of the sales, production planning and control, logistics and polyurethane foundry departments.

At the end of the apprenticeship, you will complete your final project (IPA) in one of the two areas of milling and turning.



Where will I complete my apprenticeship?

libs is based in Rapperswil on the premises of the Weidmann company, close to Rapperswil railway station. The well-equipped infrastructure is the ideal place for your basic training during the first year. There you will learn the basics in a large team - consisting of apprentices from six professions - before moving to our premises in the Buech industrial quarter.

KUNDERT AG is based in the municipality of Rapperswil-Jona in the industrial district of Buech. This is located near the Obersee, just outside Jona, but is easily accessible by public transport. All departments are located in our building; from administration, sales, production planning and control, IT, through to the individual production departments and production-related areas such as logistics, quality control and maintenance. As all departments are combined in one place, you will have contact with employees from a wide variety of areas. KUNDERT also employs people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, which makes us a multicultural, yet family-orientated company.
