Sebastian Hamm works as team leader at a MAPAL subsidiary and provides an insight into his challenging leadership role
Between 5-axis machines and 3-shift patterns: as team leader at WEISSKOPF Werkzeuge, Sebastian Hamm is a unifying element in production and one of the first to extend his congratulations when trainees pass their exams with good results.
“One of my main tasks is organising and coordinating around 20 employees. I also programme the CNC machine and perform grinding on it myself whenever I have the opportunity. I also regularly consult with production management, senior management and my team when evaluating certain key figures”, is how Sebastian Hamm outlines his extensive range of responsibilities. Born in Thuringia, he completed his training to become a cutting tool mechanic at WEISSKOPF Werkzeuge in 2011. He worked as a machine operator and deputy shift manager until 2016. After gaining his Master Craftsman Certificate, he was immediately promoted to team leader at the Meiningen site.
