Casting technologist EFZ (vocational education and training diploma)

Apprenticeship as a Casting technologist

Casting technologists are experts in the production process for cast products, from production planning through to quality control, as well as the materials and procedures to be used. They design and produce casting moulds, plan, monitor and optimise the production processes. They perform maintenance and reconditioning work on the systems. In the development phase, they seek solutions alongside other experts, conduct experiments and search for new processes. The processes in the specialist field of "lost moulds" are then applied if very large cast parts or small batches need to be manufactured and only a single casting is permitted.
