What are you doing right now, Mrs Simon?
I'm assembling our new workpiece changing system in the TomoScope® XS Plus. Together with my team, we then equip each coordinate measuring system with computed tomography coordinate measuring system individually with the accessories ordered by the customer. To ensure that the workpiece changer functions correctly later on, all changing racks must be adjusted accordingly. We use a gage block to check the distance between the changing racks and the rotary axis so that the fixtures can be removed automatically later.
What is your background?
I come from a family of craftsmen. Even as children, my siblings and I worked on motorbikes together with our father and grandfather – and usually got them running-out again. That's where my affinity for mechanics comes from. At the Chance trade fair, I got information about the relevant professions, got to know the Werth company and applied without further ado. I was able to shorten my training as an industrial mechanic by six months and immediately set myself new goals. Alongside my work at Werth, I went to evening school to become an industrial master craftsman. According to my degree, I was put in charge of CT assembly. In this role, I am responsible for the assembly planning of my employees and also for communicating with the design department if I see potential for improvement in components or processes.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Together with my team, I oversee the entire assembly process from the beginning to delivery to the customer. It's extremely exciting and challenging, because I get to see how diverse the accessories are and all the possible combinations. When it comes to novelties such as the workpiece changing system, I am of course there when the first systems are assembled and tested.
