What does a Tinsmith do?
As a tinsmith, you manufacture and assemble sheet metal components for buildings. These are, for example, window sills or balcony and roof cladding. The specifications for the constructions come from architects and you then produce the sheet metal components by bending, folding, cutting and soldering, or you bring prefabricated sheet metal parts into the right shape. You also produce sheet metal cladding for insulated pipelines and containers and install solar collectors and lightning protection conductors.
What is important?
- Craftsmanship and eye-hand coordination (e.g. for assembly and installation work).
- Diligence (e.g. when forming sheet metal and pipes to fit exactly)
- Body control and freedom from vertigo (e.g. when working on ladders and scaffolding)
- Work according to plan (customer specifications must be adhered to)
- Interpretation of plans (the plan of the product must be understood in order to be able to manufacture the product)
